I just can’t get a handle on this –

every time I think I’ve learned my lesson,

I lose my grip,

and good intentions get buried

beneath this chip on my shoulder.

Is there a How-To Manual

for letting go?

Shovelling this load

has taken its toll.

Lord –

please remind me

that You’re

handling this…

    A how to manual; oh we wish πŸ™‚ But, nah, then it would be too easy. It would spoil the fun.

    This is so true . . . how often do we try to dig our way out of things . . . when all along God has the shovel in His hands making our way clear!

  4. Thanks! This applies to most of us.

    Oh boy, is this one for me, or what??!!! You must have had a window on my world. Thanks for the great poem–maybe I should tape it up somewhere…I know, on the inside of my door so that coming, or going, I’ll be headed in the right direction: HIS.

  8. When you find that how to manual can you pass it on to me please
