Twenty Eleven

Twenty Eleven…
Tough year for so many across the planet
In our strife and disappointment
We all take so much for granite
We lose a home, car, job or our prestige
Some of us value those things
So much so we lose our sanity
It’s true we do need a great deal to
Live and survive
However consider the blessing of
Still being alive
The dawning of each new day
Means we have an opportunity to
Humbly continue on our way
We may no longer have the job of our dreams
Still don’t give up hope…
You will find something
The home you live in now might not be
The extravagant mansion you lived in last
Starting over often corrects mistakes of our past
A fancy foreign car you may no longer sport
However the affordable domestic one
Kept you out of debtors or bankruptcy court
The big time job with the fancy office
And the inflated executive title
Once replaced your love for God
You worshipped self as a godly idol
The list of material losses and mishaps can go on forever
But today why not choose to live your life much better
Today decide to be Thankful
For each and every breath
Realize your blessings
You’ve overcome all else
Focus on living with hope
You’ve been given life over death.
