I wrote the following poem back in 2011, but this past week-end reminded me of it.  I met myself, coming and going!  I didn’t even know which one of the kids I was at times!  It was a great weel-end, but now it’s time to slow down and think on the wonderful things God has wrought in my life!  Time to reflect….  -anita


“giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  Ephesians 5: 20


The sun comes up…we’re on our way;

Off to work in a hurry…no time to pray!

Not a moment to waste…not a minute to spare;

Too busy deciding just what we should wear.

Can’t find the keys, and the cell phone is dead…

Must find the charger…no time for devotions to be read!

No time to lift up our head to say,

“Thank you God for waking me up today!”

Don’t remember His name…no thoughts of Him,

Until we run into a big problem!

Or, maybe we’re mad, and His name’s said THAT way…

Don’t you think it would have been easier just to pray?

Yes!  Tomorrow morning, that’s how I’ll start my day…

By lifting my head, or bowing to say:

“I NEED YOU Lord Jesus…keep me in your way,

And just get me through this crazy day!”
