Cross walk

I've been sent this - it said a lot to me and I hope it helps others who are having problems right now.

The Crosswalk

Every once in a while, a seemingly-simple email comes around that ends up being quite profound. This is one of them.









Whatever your cross,

whatever your pain,
there will always be sunshine, after the rain....
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall;
But God's always ready, to answer your call....
He knows every heartache, sees every tear,
a word from His lips, can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night,
But suddenly vanish, by dawn's early light...
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above,
to give you His grace, and send you His love.

May God fill your day with blessings!!




Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle!

Sorry guys there is a story strip that goes with it showing a man carrying a cross that he is allowed to cut down to make it easier to carry. He then comes to a crevasse and all the other peoples crosses can be laid over the gap to cross. His is now too short to cross over.
