Thoughts on My Birthday
« on: February 20, 2020, 09:29:23 AM »
It's a new day
 the birds are singing
 happily, loud enough
 for me to hear.
 Yesterday, in the past
 lay, with the darkness
 of its time... The things
 that once broke my heart
 are left behind.
 Lord, You have always held
 my hand; You have never let
 me fall below who I am.
 Thank you Lord for staying near
 enough to my heart, that all
 I have to do is turn to you
 in faithful prayer, to always see
 you standing there, to help me
 through the things hard for
 my heart to bear.

As I journey on in life
 let me not with sadness in my
 heart look back on yesterday's
 tear; for what is passed has
 no substance in my today, but
 what I give to it.

 Life has many faces, many dreams
 many failures, but life does not
 end with these things.

 Lord, let me see beneath the
 shadow of doubt...to bigger and
 better things.
