Life is still beautiful!



I’m mindful of the blessings
That come my way each day.
My heart is overflowing
Each time I kneel to pray.
I’m thankful for the seasons;
Each one’s a masterpiece.
I’m allowed to work the land,
But God still holds the lease.
I’m grateful for the friendships
That brighten sorrow’s way,
Because my cup of happiness
Sustains me everyday.
I love my son and the flowers
That decorate my life
And the quiet, gentle hours
Free from worry and strife.
I’m grateful for eyes that see
The beauty of it all
Because God’s been good to me
And blessed me through it all.
I’m thankful for the little things
That fill my life with love.
The best things in life are free;
They come from God above!
