Rise and Shine

Stretch and greet the new morn
rise and shine with glee...
Jesus gave you another day
so face it joyfully!

If the sun is shining
rejoice and greet its rays;
if rain should hit your window,
despite it give God praise!

Count your blessings daily,
take not these things for granted...
give thanks to the Lord above
and serve Him where you're planted!

Savor every minute friend,
for each breath that you take
is ordered by the Lord our God,
your life is no mistake!

Be God's willing vessel
until you hear no sound,
and you're fast asleep in bed
as God's angels gather round.

Use wisely your time on earth,
be the Lord's representative...
let others see Christ in you
for however long you live...

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
