A hot cup of tea satisfies most
when chilly is the breeze
How beautiful are flowers new
After a winter's white blanket

Would anything feel so grand
without the opposite to tire us?
Could candles ever cheer as much
if not for dark, gray days?

Heaven is only heavenly to those
who know of hardship and sorrow
Christ's death to prove this truth
greatest beauty from the greatest pain

Purity the opposite of sinfulness
Life the opposite of death
Light the opposite of darkness
Joy the opposite of despair

In the world there is discomfort
But I sip my tea as a reminder
that peace exists in the midst of war
that Christ lives where Satan claims to reign
I was supposed to be doing my devotions this morning, but I felt a poem coming on. Somehow I have a feeling I was doing my devotions without knowing it. ;-) (As a side note, I wrote this while listening to Alexandre Desplat's The King's Speech, oh and obviously drinking tea!)

I'm thinking C.S. Lewis talked about this in his book The Problem of Pain. Maybe that's where I got the idea. :shrug:
