A Feeling of Thanks
by Brenda Ehmka
I sit in God's amazing world
And often wonder why,
We fail to see the good in life
In part, although we try.
There's many things around us
That can make us bright and gay,
Like when we came unto this earth
Choosing our own special day.
We all should try to greet each day
As though it is the best,
Knowing that we have the choice
Forget about the rest.
Today is all there really is
Though the others may be near,
The past and future cannot help
For this is when we're here.
So try to stay in the here and now
For this is where we see
The wonders that surround us
Being thankful we are free.....
