LORD I am here waiting for your will to be done
Sitting at the kitchen table watching the rising sun.

The sky is a clear blue as a background for the sun
As I sit and thank you for my family and everyone.
Each day that I awake there is a lesson to be learned
It may not be stupendous
But in my heart it will burn.

You’ve given us so much that we should be thankful for
The sun , the moon , the rivers and the streams
The green grass and the tall beautiful trees.

You’ve given us food from all walks of life
From the seas and the skies
From the earth below our feet
And for all that we eat.

You show us both sides of life , the good and the bad
Just so that “ we could understand”.
That everything in life is truly free.
It starts in our hearts and travels to our minds
And we can find peace and contentment till the ends of time.

The sacrifices that we make , can be heartache and pain
But nothing in life ever remains the same.
There is a price for everything - but it’s not for the foods we eat
But for the love he’s given us -and the hatreds we must defeat.

The “bad “ is in our hearts and minds
And not anything on the ground
All you have to do is turn and look around.

We must defeat the “thoughts” of all our jealousies
Wants , and hates - and wake up to the beauties
Before it’s much too late.
Like the song says “ accentuate the  positive
And eliminate the negative”.
That is the key if we want to be free.

So I sit here with these thoughts in my mind
And thanking you  DEAR LORD
Till the end of my time.
