About the Poem

Often we expect everything on a silver platter. If given we would not appreciate it and take our blessings for granted

Hidden Blessings

Thank you God for the valleys,
That I sometimes find myself in.
A life that is always sunshine
And no rain would bring
A world without flowers,
Or gardens to tend.
The rivers would all dry up.
The ocean's a dream.
A world without happiness,
to me, it would seem.

Life can't be all blessing -
There would be no need
To talk with God,
Or bow at His feet.
Heaven would be meaningless,
Angels would be without song.
Life on earth would be boring,
and the days here would be long.
