GRATITUDE To awaken me I need no alarms A new day has dawned after a night of calm. The sunlight streams from the open window Through the transparent drapes it finds its way indoor. There is a multitude of things I need to be ever grateful for Things which I take for granted, which many may not have by far Each day I will think of something to thank the Creator And that way I will teach myself to end my bicker Today I am grateful for being able to ‘see’ The beauty of God’s hand all around me I stop for a moment and think of the blind Who see the world through another’s mind. I join my hands in grateful Prayer And look heavenward to the One who’s there Then I thank Him for giving me ‘sight’ And all the other privileges which make my life a delight.
