At 30

She rejoices at being given the years

While most may equate age with fears.

She seems to walk with more flair

As if she’s dancing on air.

Her eyes of brown dance in the sun

A new age, a new decade, has begun.

Fold

These are my hands,
They will grow old,
They won’t forever look grand,
But they will never cease to fold…
..in prayer

These are my knees,
They will buckle someday,
Yet they will not cease,
To kneel before you everyday

These are my feet,
They won’t always be strong,
But it will perform a feat,
Walking away from all that’s wrong

This is me,
A sinner
As sinners can be
But I will glorify Your name, always
As You are the reason why I am a winner

Thankfully Tired

I am tired and I am spent
I am limpy and well over bent
My feet hurts
And the rest of my body is numb

Despite all this, I am thankful I am tired
It goes to show I’ve done well with my time
And that I have been blessed.

Grace

Thankful for each day of living

Each air breathed

Each moment cherished

Each smile shared

Each friend made….and kept

Each lesson learned and other lessons to be learned

 

Everything that has been given,

thank you Lord for the graces

Sweet Flowers of May

the flowers of May blossomed

and I wondered if they would ever know

if the people would ever know

take notice or take time

to admire the flower’s sweet perfumes

 

the flowers have blossomed and it’s been for quite sometime

yet nobody took notice

not even the gardener or the flower shop keeper

how could they just ignore the beauty that surrounds them?

does it matter not to them?

 

the flowers of May wilted to June

still they took no notice

will they ever learn to be grateful

before it is too late?

I’m Thankful For Yesterday

Yesterday is a day that you can never prepare for

It is a day that can never be erased or removed or deleted

One that you can never go back to

except only in memory

Yesterday was not perfect, as all days are not

Things may not have gone well

But, what else is new?

It may have been a wonderful day

Or the most awful one yet

No matter what it might have been

one thing is for certain

You survived that day and you’ll continue on

The task may seem too much

But look back on your yesterday and see

what you have accomplished; you made it this far

Be glad for you are able to recount your yesterday

as it molds your future

Let yesterday be your constant guide

as you move on for today and tomorrow

Life Is Impossible, That’s Why It’s So Wonderful

Life is full of surprises

that’s why it’s so wonderful

To be given such a gift

isn’t it blissful?

To be able to learn something new everyday

to undertake what seems impossible

Is something to be proud of

don’t be so negative and think it’s dreadful

Your life is a gift

so be grateful

 If you think it’s otherwise

or that it’s awful

then you’re looking it at the wrong direction

our life is not built for perfection

We’re supposed to struggle

so we can learn to be thankful

Your life is wonderful

your purpose is golden

Don’t ever give up

and be thankful often
