Thankful

There's so much bad
It's easy to forget to see the good---
When life knocks you down,
It's easy to miss the hand holding you up,
And when your eyes overrun with tears
It's easy to forget how to smile.

I remember the people who hurt me
The insults I've been given,
The tasks I failed to complete,
The money I don't have,
The friends who've died,
And the future looks bleak,
When I go to sleep at night

But when I wake up in the morning
I put yesterday behind me.
I remember the friends who help me
The compliments I've earned,
The accomplishments left for me to achieve,
The best things in life are free,
And sometimes, it's just an honor 
To have known my friends at all.

Because for every day of heavy rain,
Comes a delicious day of sun
And for every heartbreak
A stronger pulse--
So if I should wake tomorrow,
I will simply be thankful.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
