    Default An Easter Poem - Happy Easter Everyone!

    Blessed Are You - Easter Lessons
    Blessed are you who take the time To listen to difficult speech,
    For you help me to know that If I persevere, I can be understood.
    Blessed are you who never bid me to "Hurry Up"
    Or take my tasks from me And do them for me,
    For I often need time rather than help.
    Blessed are you who stand beside me
    As I enter new and untried ventures,
    For my failures will be outweighed
    By the times I surprise myself and you.
    Blessed are you who asked for my help,
    For my greatest need is to be needed.
    To put my thoughts into words.
    Blessed are you who understand that
    It is difficult for me
    Blessed are you who with a smile,
    Encourage me to try once more.
    Blessed are you who never remind me
    That today I asked the same question twice.
    Blessed are you who respect me
    And love me just as I am
    Amen

    Thank you for this wonderful poem. Wouldn't it be great to know the author and that person's story?

    Hoping that you and your family had a blessed Easter Sunday.

    A time of renewal ~ may it be so for all of us ~

    Love & Light,
