Do Not Lament

We have not the time
To spend in deepest regret
Over the mistakes
We have made in days gone past,
But must live today in joy.

The things we have done
Are forgiven by the Lord.
We are set free from
All the sins we committed
By Jesus’ saving grace.

No matter what may
Happen in the world today
We are surrounded
By the loving care of God
And He will light our pathway.

We should live each day
So fully we never once
Become discontent
With what we have accomplished,
But rejoice with happiness.

We are the living
Representatives of faith
Placed by God on Earth
To reflect His righteousness
Before a grief stricken world.

I am grateful:

1.   June took Mom to get her hair cut.
2.   I slept peacefully after I went back to bed this morning.
3.   My shower was refreshing.
4.   We had a nice supper.
5.   Life is very fulfilling.

I hope you have had a good Monday. My day has been very pleasant. I encourage you to make an effort to work creatively now. I know without doubt that you can make something wonderful if you apply yourself. I have no special talent and I have been doing this Creativity Project for 280 days. If I can do it, so can you. Believe in your gifts and use them to enrich our world.
