If We Could See

If we could see beyond a sorrow
Beyond a present grief, as God can see
We would be braver, knowing some tomorrow
Will still hold happiness for you and me

If we could only glimpse through other eyes
To see the things that is God’s plan and design
We would be more strong and would be keeping
In our hearts, peace and hope through every darkened time

If we could see beyond blurred eyes and weeping
Knowing again the road will smooth before our eyes
By putting our full trust in God and his promises
The lessons of life will unfold to make us wise

We are so blinded by our grief and heartache 
The suffering of so much sickness, sorrow and pain
That we forget the joys beyond believing
God’s promise of healing and peace will be ours again

I'd like to put up a little Update on my health issues. I haven't mentioned anything on here in a long while but I'm still struggling so to speak. My Adrenal Glands went down back in 2016 and now all of my glands are out of whack all due to them not being able to get me balanced out on any meds. after they removed my thyroid in 2014. It's an every day struggle and I'm not able to do much anymore. I now have Home health coming in once a day to help me with my baths, etc. I know God is the great Physician and it's in his hands. Just got back today from yet another Appt. with the Endocrinoligist and she's setting up more tests to try and find out if I now have one or more other Autoimmune Diseases as well.  Our health is so important and it can go in the blink of an eye. I'm grateful to God for waking me up to see another day every morning and it's in his hands. He still has us all here for a reason and he's not going to let us down. I cling to him every day. Please continue to pray for me and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  May God bless you all. ~Susie~


  1. I love your poetry and pictures! Sharing it on some of my pages! Praying for a quick and complete recovery for you!

  2. Oh Susie, I'm so sorry you're still having health issues. I was hoping since you've been putting your poetry on the blog that you were healed. Maybe God's reason is the fact that you are such an inspiration and blessing to us. Indeed we will keep praying for you. Love you Susie. Charlotte

    1. Thank you Charlotte for the prayers and sweet words. I've struggled for a long time but like you said God is in control. Love you too.

  3. Thinking of you, Susie, and saying a prayer for you. I hope your Endocrinologist can find a way to help you feel better and that you can hold onto God's promise of peace.

  4. Susie, I am praying for you to be able to return to good health. I hate for you to be suffering. I knew you had so much trouble with your thyroid...and all this is from that time. I think many more things are tied into our autoimmune systems than ever known. Plus stress is a bad thing, and how can we not have stress when we are not well? Susie, I think of you as my friend and you will always be in my heart and thoughts. Asking God to bless you, xoxo,love, Susie

    1. Thank you Susie. Yes it all started way back then and I've only went down hill since. Stress is our number one enemy and nowdays with my Adrenals down and not putting out much cortisol I don't have any bodily defense. It's a hard road but god has carried me this far. I think of you as well and you are in my prayers also.

  5. That poem is so beautiful and so true. We may not know what's going to happen, but we do know we can trust our very good God to take good care of us! Standing in faith with you dear friend for a speedy solution and a return to vibrant health!
