Arrayed Like a Lily

Golden Calla Lily plant in bloom

Wonder not,

Nor worry today,

Nor even

Tomorrow.

If Overmorrow arrives,

Give thanks to God

Shadorma

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Matthew 6:34

(Inspired by “The Word of the Day” on Dictionary.com which is “Overmorrow”)

Count The Days

Roses and rose petals on ground at the Rose Garden in Portland, OR—June 2012

We count our life in years,

But what about the days?

All the seconds of life?

Cherish all the minutes.

It’s in those moments,

Memories are made,

Chances are taken,

Changes often happen.

Treasure every breath.

Celebrate each day.

Give thanks for your life.

Syllabic Verse

My grand-daughter messaged me today to tell me I have lived 27,365 days so far! Where did all those days go?

It seems a lot longer when you view your life as days rather than years!

It’s pretty amazing to think about, and so inspired the thoughts for this poem.

Reluctantly,

November Goodbye scene

Tonight with sadness,

I shall say “Goodbye November.”

Month of gratitude,

That causes us to reflect

Upon our blessings,

And give thanks for our life.

No other month does this.

November, I shall miss you,

In December’s hectic days.

Give Thanks

Sunset
Dont let this day come to an end

Without a word of thanks for it 

Whether you faced foe or friend

Dont let this day come to an end

Until a word of thanks you extend

Thank God for life-every bit

Dont let this day come to an end

Without a word of thanks for it
