listen friends

listen well dear friends
Remember this through your sad times
and hard trials
Remember this when you hear of unfortunate events of society
and when pain tears through your heart.
The world we live in is a beautiful world!
God is looking down upon us and smiling.
He smiles at all the beauty happiness
and love in this world.
And the beauty includes those
who are overcoming hardships
and others that are helping others to do so.
