    Lessons come
    In shapes and sizes
    Like people
    Making people teachers as well as lessons
    Cry no more over disguised blessings
    God is your shield and your weapon!

    You can't take back what you've given
    No excuse to stop living
    And giving
    And healing
    The part of you that really matters
    While protecting a heart battered
    And a pride that's been shattered

    Wisdom enters through trial
    Sometimes error
    With no puropse other than to make us better
    Let it make you
    And break you
    So you can get it back together!

    A crying shame when we can't learn from our experiences the first time....but God lights the way and somehow we learn eventually. Nice piece.
