The End Of The Road Is But A Bend In The Road

by Helen Steiner Rice

When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the "song has ended"--
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended,

Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying,
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying--

There's but one place to go and that is to God
And, dropping all pretense and pride,
We can pour out our problem without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side--

And together we stand at life's crossroads
And view what we think is the end,
But God has a much bigger vision
And he tells us it's only a bend--

For the road goes on and is smoother,
And the "pause in the song" is a "rest,"
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best--

So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load,
Your work is not finished or ended,
You've just come to "a bend in the road."

Decoupage Tissue Box:

I made this tissue box for my oldest daughter's birthday. I have to admit, it was lots of fun to make. I used a simple wooden tissue box, scrapbook paper, homemade decoupage glue, and acrylic spray. Hope u enjoy!

Do You Remember This:

Well, my daughter sent  some pictures of the  finished afghan that I made for her. I crocheted this afghan and gave it to them as a wedding gift  three years ago. Hope you enjoy! I almost forgot what the afghan looked like.

I am so glad to be back after being away for quite some time.  This past Christmas season, I had a part time job to help out with expenses. I am so behind on some of my Christmas gifts. I made four sets of these blocks for my grown children and I'm just now finishing up with them. I have so many wonderful pictures to post for you to enjoy. Happy Blogging to all!

The beautiful tin is for storing the Christmas blocks.
