Thank Him Today

What do you think of the weather today?
Do you grumble and complain?
If the day is hot and sunny
do you say, "Why doesn't it rain?"

If you're eating cornbread and beans,
do you whine, "I wish I had steak."
Are you being so ungrateful your
thoughtless words make God's heart break?

Don't dare be a grumbler today!
Lift up your eyes and look around.
Do you see what God has done for you?
Look how your life with blessings abound.

Get on your knees right this minute.
Name all the gifts He's given you.
Tell Him thank you for every one,
even the rising sun and the morning dew.

Praise Him for the gift of abundant life,
for the sacrifice of His Son, His one and only,
for the people He's surrounded you with.
With God by your side you'll never be lonely.

Now you're finally getting the true picture.
Watch for those blessings every day.
You'll see how rich your life really is.
Praise and thank Him by the words you say.

Valleys and Mountaintops

My LORD and Savior is with me
each and every day.
Through all of life's seasons,
He hears me when I pray.

He's with me in the valley of weeping
when I'm in the depths of despair.
He's with me on the mountaintop of joy.
I can always see His tender care.

He knows just how to comfort me
through times of sorrow and grief,
bringing peace to my heavy heart,
granting me gracious relief.

During difficult times He never leaves.
He will always be right by my side
loving me and holding me close.
With Him I always will reside.

A Longing for Home

Thinking of home makes
my heart beat joyously.
The very word on my lips
tastes deliciously sweet.

A picture is created
of a magnificent place
where love and devotion
are evident on each face.

There's a longing in my heart
to return to that special abode
where cares and troubles
shared make an easier load.

We all love our families
and our home here on earth,
but what about heaven
with its joy and mirth.

Heaven is on my mind now,
I'll see my Savior before long.
He'll welcome me home saying,
"This is where you belong".

Waiting is never easy for us. Remember when
you were a kid waiting for Christmas. That
time between Thanksgiving and Christmas
seems to go soooo slow. It's hard waiting
for that special gift, but remember how
wonderful it was when you finally did
receive it.

We wait all our lives for good gifts:
birthdays, graduations, that special person
to marry, our children to be born, a house
to buy, grandchildren. Wait, wait, wait,
but oh what blessings come when we wait.

God has many gifts for us, but sometimes He
asks us to wait. When you finally receive
that special gift, how very sweet it is.
