Try To Get It Right
God gave me another chance today
To try to get it right,
Another 24 shinning hours of opportunity.
No matter if it's stormy or bright.
I know that without His help,
I'd never make it through,
So, I'll try to praise and honor Him,
And try to do as he would have me do.
Try not to dwell upon my self,
But to think of what others might need,
To not boast or brag...or have too much pride,
To not be selfish and full of greed.
Try not to worry, about things I can't help,
But try to help in ways I can.
And not ignore those with troubles,
But to have compassion and try to understand.
Yes, I've another chance to try to do it better,
To pray and be more pleasing in God's sight.
He gave me another day today....
To try to get it right.
We may not always realize
That every thing we do,
Affects not only our lives
But touches others, too!
For a little bit of thoughtfulness
That shows someone you care,
Creates a ray of sunshine
For both of you to share.
Yes, every time you offer
Someone a helping hand ...
Every time you show a friend
You care and understand ...
Every time you have
A kind and gentle word to give ...
You help someone find beauty
In this precious life we live.
For happiness brings happiness
And loving ways bring love;
And Giving is the treasure
That contentment is made of....
