I Choose To Remember

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” Napoleon Bonaparte

Be Grateful For Life

Psalm 37:25    I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread

Many years are written upon my face; my life has traveled countless miles and space.    Many days my aged eyes have seen go by; I embrace tears of sorrow and joy that I have cried.        My mind welcomes a view of how things used to be, and I embrace thoughts of how life is so sweet.       Many joys and pains I have faced; most of them my memory can vividly trace.

Am I tired …  someone might say; the answer to this question is “faith.”       Faith has been my friend for many years;, and in my old age, it’s still here.  How wonderful it is to have God in my life time; this is a thought that dominates my mind.

I could have been wiped out from life’s troubles that have come my way, but somehow God saw fit for me to see a new day.     

I’m here in this land and I’m so glad; I have no reason to be miserable or sad.     I have confidence in the Master above; He has shown me His mercy and great love.      I have come to a place in life that’s sweet with delight; now I’m old, but I still have God’s might.

Peace is inside my soul, sent from God above; I’m grateful I have had an opportunity to live and love.    My lips are not silent to tell of my gratefulness, and my mind is always thinking on God’s goodness.     I thank God for my trials and troubles that came by; and I thank  Him for the smiles and tears that fell from my eyes.     

I thank Him for allowing me to be a part of His plan; all the days of my life, I’ll
praise God,  

Amen   Amen.
