Today’s blog is a short poem, reflecting on this life I live, on the life each of us have been so graciously given. #bethankful
Each sunset, a reminder of Your presence through the night.
Every sunrise shows Your mercy, shining new and bright.
May I always pause to thank You for the fullness of my days;
And lift praise to You alone for the morning’s first soft rays.
For it’s only by Your hand I can lay my soul to sleep,
And it’s only by your grace alone, another day I’m blessed to keep.
So forgive me when I live, as if life somehow deserved;
Was always promised to me, as I journey through this world.
Now that age has been my blessing, and more days have come to me;
I’ve quickly come to realize, just how fleeting life can be.
I humbly take my place in time, a vapor, mist and breath;
And thank You once again for any time I might have left.
