I Can and Can’t


As I walk through this life

I can change many things

But I can’t change you

I can change my habits

But I can’t change yours

I can control my actions

But can’t control yours

I can do so many things

But only God can change you




A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

  1. So true Leona. The trouble is, many people try to change others and forget it is themselves they need to concentrate on. If each one of us would deal with our own lives, what kind of world might we have? What kind of church might we have?

    1. Yes so very true Diane. This has always been prevalent in human nature but seems to have really increased during this pandemic. It is something we all need to focus on daily I think.
