God's Gift

Life is the most precious gift
Treat it as such and do your best to uplift

Stop wasting time in sorrow
There will always be tomorrow

To make a fresh start
And ease your heart

God is in control
Have trust in Him as His love consoles

Enjoy each moment as if it is your last
Once the time is past

You can never get it back
So make sure happiness is intact

You only get one lifetime
So make it worth each and every dime

Keep loved ones close
And be sure to thank God first and foremost

As I read this, I had just commented to someone (Just Be Real) that "when all else fails"...PRAY. I now pray she understands that I meant, if I pray FIRST, all else may not happen!

Thanks. Your posts always send a message apropos.

reminds me of the law of attraction!
God doesnt make mistakes so take life for what it is and stop being lazy/complaining and start living life
