Poet's Notes about The Poem

Read the challenging brief biography chronicling Annie's lifetime of painful affliction from crippling arthritis, a trial used by the Refiner of our souls to bring forth Annie's faith as.

God hath not promised, skies always blue, flower strewn pathways all our lives through. God hath not promised, sun without rain, joy without sorrow, peace without pain, God hath not promised, we shall not know, toil and temptation, trouble and woe. He hath not told us, we shall not bear, many a burden, many a care. But hath promised, strength for the day, rest for the labour, light for the way, Grace for the trials, help from above, unfailing sympathy, undying love. God hath not promised smooth roads and wide, Swift, easy travel, needing no guide; Never a mountain rocky and steep, Never a river turbid and deep.
