Thank You, God
I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings,
Thank you, Lord, that I can hear.
There are many who are deaf.
I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible,
Thank you, Lord, that I can see.
There are many who are blind.
I huddle in my bed and put off rising,
Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise.
There are many who are bedridden.
the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost,
toast is burned and tempers are short, my children are so loud,
Thank you, Lord, for my family.
There are many who are lonely.
Even though our breakfast table never looks like
the pictures in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced,
Thank you, Lord, for the food we have.
There are many who are hungry.
the routine of my job often is monotonous,
Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work.
There are many who have no job.
I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day
and wish my circumstances were not so modest,
Thank you, Lord, for life!
PASS IT ON....
A friend is someone we turn to when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone to treasure. For friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives with Beauty, Joy and
Grace and makes the world we live in a better and happier place.
