I have really been enjoying my work as a chaplain at the hospital. We regularly talk with the patients we serve about the positive benefits of drawing and writing and how those activities can help us express and explore our emotions in a healthy way. Recently, the topic came up with a youth group I was ministering to and one individual asked me if I do those things. I told them that I like to write. They responded, “Write a poem for us!” So, I did.
Some days are cheery and very bright
And I love the way the sun shines,
Other days are like dark nights
That I would rather leave behind.
Sometimes I’m unsure of the weather
Until I’ve already stepped outside.
Sometimes I don’t know that I feel sad,
Until after I’ve already cried.
But I know each day is different,
And the weather can quickly change,
And part of healing and feeling better,
Is learning to accept the rain.
So, whether the sun is shining bright
Or storm clouds are headed my way,
I know that I am brave and strong,
And I will make it through the day.
My prayer for you is that you have a bright and sunny day! I pray that all things will go smoothly and each day in the upcoming week will be worry free. But in the event that storms come, I pray that you would continue to stand firmly on God’s word, knowing that He is with you and that He will bring you through the storm. May the Lord bless you and the people you love.
