A Simple LESSON IN LIFE

Why do we fight it?
It's a wonderful life!
Just took a walk down to the lake,
The surface is as smooth as glass;
Sun rising over the mountains,
Loons nestled safely in tall grass.
A doe to my right getting a drink,
Knows that she has nothing to fear;
Two swans paddle closer to shore,
Seem unafraid of drawing near.
A soft breeze caresses my face,
The air is so gentle and light;
As wildlife moves all about,
Making this old world feel so right.
Peace and contentment all around,
Reminding me how life should be;
These intermingling species,
Learned to live together, yet free.
Lessons in life are everywhere,
If we'll open our eyes and see;
A much better world is out there,
If we learn to live and let be.
My friends, have a wondeful day,
Contentment is my wish for you;
May your trails be as smooth as glass,
Be happy in all that you do.
Good day and God bless.

|AS CHRISTIANS, WE KNOW THAT GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US AND WE DO FEEL CONTENT IN THIS...BUT THERE ARE TIMES WHEN HIS SPIRIT JUST SEEMS TO ENGULF US ALL AT ONCE AND THE JOY OF HIS PRESENCE AND HOW GOOD HE IS, DESPITE THE WORLD'S CONDITIONS, FLOODS OUR SOULS. IT IS INITIATED USUALLY BY A TOUCHING HYMN, A SERMON, A TESTIMONY OR, AS IN YOUR CASE, NATURE...JUST FEELING AND SEEING THE CREATIONS OF HIS HANDS AND REALIZING 'HOW GREAT THOU ART' MOVED YOUR HEART TO ADORATION. THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR 'LESSON' - IT IS APPRECIATED AND ENJOYED. GLORY TO GOD! JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS|
