It’s A beautiful Day

I wake up this morning
It’s a beautiful day
The sun it is shining
In a wonderful way
I do not know why
I’m in love with this life
But I’m feeling high
 No feelings of strife

I’m feeling my age now
But I do not care
The aches in my body
They don’t seem too fair
But I’m smiling away 
This is what I do
Cause I feel so happy
I’m feeling brand new

I say to my maker
Whoever she be
I thank you so much
For giving to me
Such a wonderful life 
Without suffering
I thank you my lord
For the joy you do bring

I love it that your maker is a She, which resounded immediately within my soul, as I have always called God "she". That popped out so fast, and I held onto it. I cannot help but wonder if the little girl in the photo is someone you love emphatically? She looks wonderful. Nicely done, my friend.

G'day Caren That child in the picture Is my wife when she was little. It makes me smile whenever I look at these photos. I always think of God as a female. for most of them have so much love to give and fit the picture more than men. I thank you so much once again for your kind comments, my friend....Peter

Hi Eve. The picture is of Vera when she was very young. I love my age now. Probably more happy than I have been before. Most people are afraid of death but none of this for me. Body and mind go, but life goes on forever. Every thing goes round in circles. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend. Have a wonderful Christmas,,,,Peter
