Remember What He’s Doing

“We all know about gratitude It’s the attitude of thankfulness But what about the multitude Of feelings of hopelessness When your away from your family And do not know for sure when you’ll see them Or when your heart has been broken And you’re tired of hoping, Who will listen then?
