sometimes life is ugly
like parents loving a child through drug rehab
like a spouse drowning as he tried to save a life
like children changing and dressing their father
like a mom and dad burying their third child
like a man bearing execution for humanity's sake
and the brokenhearted cry tears unceasing
that fall to earth like so much rain
and i love what joseph has to say to his
you intended to harm me,
but god intended it all for good
and what if we lived like that?
believing that from the to-the-earth-tears
beauty will spring forth....
when have you seen beauty spring from the ugly?
