I found this poem in a book that I have called Stories for a Kindred Heart. This is one of those books that you just start reading all the different stories. It's by Alice Gray @ Barbara Baumcardner.  
                                                                                             
We do not understand:
Joy..until we face sorrow
Faith..until it is tested
Peace..until faced with conflict
Trust..until we are betrayed
Love..until it is lost
Hope..until confronted with doubts

Oh, that is so true! And good to reflect on. God has been teaching me a lot lately. The most important is to keep trusting Him.
Happy Spiritual Sunday!

Hi Ginger, My name is Lynn and I joined Spirtual Sundays for the first time today. When I tested my link, it comes up saying my blog name is not valid, however if one simply clicks on the blog name, my post "25 Years Ago Today" does come right up. I was lead to post this today after prayer tonight. I know it is very long, but I believe it is His will that I post it today on the exact anniversary. Please contact me if there is any problem. I have joined parties before and have not had the issue I do today but hopefully people will try to click the blog name and be taken right to the post. God Bless you Ginger and Charlotte for this wonderful gathering of His followers.Thank you.
