Sunshine In Our Life

Poem By Marilyn Lott

Often times I notice
That when life is just too much
Many folks must escape reality
So they choose to embrace a crutch

They seem to not know how
To face life’s constant defeats
To take hold of their daily life
And land steady on their feet

So sadly they escape
In a self-defeating direction
With a bottle or a pill
Or another toxic selection

Life’s a challenge; it’s a trial
And we have to play along
Even when so many times
We’re not sure where we belong

But God is waiting patiently
Though we may not realize
If we knew how much He loves us
We’d be anxious for the sun to rise

We must stop and realize
Our direction is not our fate
If we don’t like what we see
We can change the way it’s shaped

We can put sunshine in our life
With whatever we truly enjoy
Let the sadness turn to happiness
So each day will be a joy!

For everything is new

Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too

So many choices that we can pursue
