To Take Each Day As It Comes

To take each day as it comes
To gratefully praise The One
Joyfully face the new dawn’s grace,
That's now my everyday plan.

To take each day as it comes
To guard my thought as it roams
On anything or anyone
That's now my everyday plan.

To take each day as it comes
To be careful with my words
To use the value of my hands
That's now my everyday plan.

To take each day as it comes
To do everything I can
And bring a smile to not just one
That's now my everyday plan.

To take each day as it comes
To celebrate other’s gain
Not consciously cause another's pain
That's now my everyday plan.

To take each day as it comes
Not all the time comes the sun
For sorrow comes to everyone
And that I must understand.

To take each day as it comes
And know that I’m but a man
I will be glad, life’s not that bad
And do my part in God’s plan.



*A resolution during a time of disappointment.

Kim, the positive tone of this poem is striking. Many could benefit not only themselves but those around them if they would "take each day as it comes." In addition to the message, the poetry proper is exceptionally well done.

Superb write, Kim. Every so often, we need to stop and live. That is what we need, to enjoy life. This allows learning and to admit the consequences. Your message tells to welcome a world of possibilities, thus creating a reality that supports your desires. (^_^) Noel.
