~ Thank You God For ~

My smile to share with the world
My imagination to think up wild and crazy things
My hands to extend help to those in need
My heart to love and give
My mind to think the impossible
My creativity to write stories, poems and songs
My gratitude to thank You daily
My laughter to keep me healthy
My passion to inspire others
My positive outlook on life to share
My open mind to consider all possibilities
My joy of the simple things

Dear-God-Thank-You
My sense of humor to make others laugh
My dreams to aspire to
My desires to grow towards and fulfill
My compassion for all things great and small
My sensitivity to others
My blessings to count
My appreciation of the moon and the stars
My enjoyment of nature
My trust that good will prevail
My belief in the human soul
My family to love
My faith in You
Amen!

~ I’ve Won Today! ~

You know when you have that conversation in your mind and you have it over and over and over again?  Well today, while I was showering, (and why does everything occur in the shower by the way?) I was thinking about work and letting it consume me, as I have done every day for over a year now and I’m tired of it.  So I decided that I was NOT going to let work interfere with my weekend…this is my time and I am not going to give work one more second of my mind.  After I decided this, my mind was flooded with the poem below, which actually came into my head in song form.  So there is a tune that goes with it, but I’ll let you make up your own if you so choose!  🙂

I pay no heed to you
This is what I choose to do
And you have no control of me
This morning I have set you free

Now you must go along your way
For you see, I’ve won today!
So would you be so very kind
As to please get off my mind

When ever will you understand
That you’re no longer in the plan?
I cut the cord and said goodbye
Be on your way, don’t even try

I’ve chosen to be sad no more
Let me show you to the door
You’ll no longer beat me down
I have tired of this frown

mind3

You start each day inside my head
But did you hear what I just said?
The conversation starts again
As you are trying to get in

But thrice I cut you from my life
My words are sharper than a knife
And all the time I wear this smile
Knowing you’ll be gone awhile

Oh you’ll be back again I know
But it’s getting easy to let go
My will grows stronger every minute
Especially without you in it

This battle it has gone my way
For you see, I’ve won today!

~ BECOMING ~

My soul awaits me everyday,
And listens to my heart at play.

It thirsts for knowledge to expand,
And listens for my mind’s command.

It glories in the sacred light,
Which helps my spirit to take flight.

Endless lessons fill my being,
Angels in my dreams I’m seeing.

BECOMING

Each day hope restores anew,
Embracing higher points of view.

Turning inward to be found,
Quiet now, don’t make a sound.

Tell me self, what do you hear?
“Step by step you’ll make it there”

The path I’m on, it is the one,
I love this journey I’ve become.
