“pensees”: French for “thoughts"


Pensees on the Tests and Trials of Life

In the tests and trials of life, there's a precious glow,
a luminous sliver of eternal, resurrecting hope
and renascence that begins in rebirth.

To this Light which transcends all darkness will I go,
and find a peace and a rest in His scope,
that infinite power which brings bliss and mirth.

There's a time for everything: a time for living;
a time for dying; a time for working; a time for resting;
a time for receiving; and a time for giving.

All we have, and all we are, are what we know;
we find meaning in one another, and learn to cope
with the trials here together on this planet Earth.

Without grace, we can do no better or no worse:
with God, the tests and trials of this life are for us
a blessing in disguise, and not a curse.
