A Thought for Valentine's Day

          He still puts the stars to bed
          And plants each tiny seed;
          Puts every petal on each flower,
          Provides our every need.
          Yet He who knows our future paths

          Veils our eyes here below;
          Although we strain to see ahead,
          Love says we must not know.
          Eternal Wisdom planned it thus ~
          No human comprehends,
          The child of God must learn to trust
          In faith, what our Lord sends.
          No matter what the future holds,
          Entreat your soul to rest;
          Secure to know,

          After day,
          Your Father does know best!

          ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

          "For I know the plans that I have for you,
          declares the Lord,
          plans for welfare and not for calamity
          to give you a future and a hope."
          (Jeremiah 29:11 NASB)
