Life In All Facets

Sun and Rain, joy and suffering, ups and downs—
All is part of growth and light, compassion and conversion.
Peace and serenity, acceptance and surrender, God’s gifts,
When we can take in stride and keep moving on.
All beautiful but it is easier said than done in day-to-day life.
How can we rise  above?  How can we rise above?
The hard and rough times try and dampen our good endeavors.
Our prayer and trust in Christ will carry us through.
Look up and claim the “Grasping Hand” of our out-reaching God
Who longs to heal our questioning and struggling heart.
O Risen Christ we need Your constant lifting up and care
In our fragile lives in all facets of life.  May You be praised.

Sr. La Donna M. Pinkelman, OSF
