The Pearl
When it is darkest
Light shines its brightest.
When it is hardest
Hearts beat their softest.
And when it is ugliest
Beauty looks its prettiest.
When living on...
Means rising up
With the grain of pain
Pressed between your palms,
Knowing no matter what:
God is good
And in time
The pearl of praise and thanks
Will rest within your grasp.
