In Getting To Good Days

In Getting To Good Days
by Michael Doyle

Taken then in the reflective
Life is seen in its proper perspective
We Find many reasons for gratitude
And rightly live with that attitude

No longer wearing that intended greed
But in realization that God gives what we need
It's a lesson to shape our changes
Setting sights on thankfulness, not what estranges

Journaling all the good things that God gives
Remembering all of our blessings are because He lives
Lives there and here in each of us as we realize
The beauty of life as we see it materialize

Each day that is lived is an instant's blessing
To be cultivated without any need for second guessing
As we watch God give us an amazing tapestry
Ever changing but beautiful in His memory

All of the life giving gifts of drinks of water
All of the many moments to teach us to think
So many gifts to flow inside our hearts
When experienced through a gratefulness that never departs

This then is the day that God has made
Let's live it in gladness, bravely and unafraid
Living each step taken in holy communion
Until the day when in heaven we live that reunion
