If This Day

If this day brings sunny skies and sunflowers’ sweet smiles,

A cooling breeze, a loving touch, and absence of life’s trials,

Then turn your heart to God above in thankful gratitude,

And let your conduct and your words be match for summer mood –

But if this day brings skies of gray, in overcast rebuff,

Rocks to clamber over on a trail that’s getting tough,

Then turn your heart to God above and thank Him anyway –

For gift of courage in your heart to carry you today.

  5. Yeah, sometimes it’s hard to remember…in all things give thanks. Well, honestly, I do, but it’s kind of like a grumble prayer. “Thanks for this flat tire in this crappy weather. Hopefully I’ll learn whatever it is You want me to learn from this…grumble…grumble…”
    And I always do. And it’s rarely what I expect to learn…usually something better. Nope, wonderful people didn’t magically appear and change it for me. I got wet, frustrated, and ended up laughing at myself until I need to use the bathroom. The lesson? Don’t take myself (and life)so seriously. Find joy in the moment. Thanks for the reminder.

      Flat tires in the rain – what a great opportunity to learn the tough part of this difficult lesson. Sounds like you came away with the right spirit! Life needn’t be easy to be magnificent…
