Thoughts and Notes Bring Sadness

The things that make us sad – not good, but bad.
Illness or death of a loved one or friend
can cause painful grief, we pray will soon mend,
for we know Jesus waits, our forever Dad.

Yes, Jesus is there to welcome us home,
guide us through Heaven, where angels abide,
and streets paved with gold on every bright side.
In this wondrous place, we’re never alone.

A beloved pet we’ve known for some time,
may leave us in death, a trial to face –
we must turn to Him for comfort and grace,
although for its death see no reason nor rhyme.

Music from an era we seldom recall,
a time when strife and trouble filled our lives.
Soft notes resound, a melody survives,
takes us back through years, to spirit of pall.

Music depicting our Lord on the cross,
who came to earth to die and make us free.
He took our sins, himself, without one plea,
on third day He arose – world suffered no loss.

Sadness ended, He was alive once more,
people rejoiced, sang praises to the King.
He still lives and through prayer to Him we cling.
His word speaks the truth – with no myth nor lore.

Music theme was a good one for this topic as it affects our emotions in a way nothing else can.
