ALL THESE THINGS

Post by Chee Chee Martin » Tue Nov 23, 2010 2:05 pm

ALL THESE THINGS


May you find your strength within
And wisdom is what you bestow
May you have friends on whom you can depend
And spread happiness wherever you go.

May you be able to forgive each person
Who has hurt you along the way
And may you override and never succumb
To the devil's evil ways.

May you be able to enjoy your life
And know that you've truly been blessed
May you be able to handle the strife
And also discard the rest.

May you see the goodness in everyone you meet
And see their soul therein reside
And may you be able to compete
And to others be their guide.

May you always know contentment and peace
And angels guide your way
May you be able to increase
The goodness in others every day.

All these things are yours my friend
They are there inside of you
Bring them forth as the Lord did intend
He will always see you through.

Awwwwwwww, thank you sweet Brenda! :-) I guess out of my frustration with this contraption, the Good Lord pushed His way through and gave me these words! It calmed me right down! :-) I was getting quite ticked off and He showed me to let it go! Glad you liked it and hope your Thanksgiving is great! Enjoy the day and be thankful for all His blessings! :-) Hugs ~ Chee :-)

Thank you so much Beverly and Eva for your beautiful and kind words! I've been so busy making videos and reading other people's poetry that I've not had the time to listen for God's whisperings! Today, that time was given to me because my computer acted up! Maybe it was God's intention and/or His way to make me take the time and listen! Consequently this poem came forth! :-) Needless to say, from now on I will take the time! Hee-hee! :-) Hope you both have a wonderful Thanksgiving! God Bless You! Hugs ~ Chee :-)

A write that is full of of wisdom. . .In everything that you have written here, it all points to one thing "Love" and we all know, "Love conquers All!"
This is a beautiful poem, and should be made into an E-Card.
Thanks for sharing, Chee.
Blessings

Awwwwwwwwwww, thank you so much Steve, Marvin, Shirley, and Linda! You guys have sure warmed my heart! :-) The Lord made sure I heard His whisperings yesterday! I get so involved with daily living that sometimes I don't hear Him! :-( Got to take time out everyday in order to be aware! Going to start doing just that! :-) I think everyone should for that matter! :-) You just might be surprised at what you receive! :-) Hope you all have a beautiful and wonderful Thanksgiving! You guys are my blessing!! Thank you Lord for giving me such awesome friends! :-) Hugs ~ Chee :-)
