Thank You Lord


Lord, thank you for another day,
Within this life of mine.
Give me the strength to live it well,
Whatever I may find.
Bestow Your abundance,
Whatever I may lack,
To use the hours wisely,
For I cannot have them back.
Lord, thank You for another day,
In which to make amends
For little slights or petty words,
Inflicted on my friends.
For sometimes losing patience,
With problems that I find,
For seeing faults in other's lives,
But not the ones in mine.
Lord, thank you for another chance,
In which to try to be,
A little more deserving
Of the gifts You've given me.
For yesterday is over,
And tomorrow's far away.
And I remain committed,
To the good I do today!

Thank you Kathy. I might have to re-read that every now and then. Kind of reminds me of the serenity prayer.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Appreciate it.
