Turning Trials to Blessings

I always enjoyed working
around the house
dishes
vacuuming
laundry
my office
keeping things clean
and neat
and tidy

But now that’s gone
I don’t have
the strength
and my wife
would be upset
if I did too much
due to cancer treatments
so I sit
and write
and study
cleaning my heart
and mind
with the word

I am really
enjoying it
not because
I avoid the housework
but I enjoy
the minstry of it
the spiritual growth
I am feeling
and blessing others
through the trial

Never discount
the trials
in your life
they will usually
bring great
blessing
if you allow them to.
