Drowsy

Lord,
it is confusing sometimes.

This world you made is so very beautiful,
and made just for us to live in.
The seasons are stunning, and the sun warms us up,
and the love you give us is so obvious,
especially in the arms of our families.
We want so much to snuggle down in what is good about it
and love it here.

But nightmares of sickness happen
or disasters,
there is fear and hurt and misunderstanding
and cruelty

It is absolutely startling sometimes
being awakened from happiness
by a slap in the face
when we were hoping for a hug.

I can only dream of when everything is really
just as it should be
and we'll all find rest for our souls.
