I found myself feeling a little worried today
And then a voice said inside my head HEY!
Have you forgotten how you felt just the other day,
You had a calm sense of peace and knew everything would be okay.
Give no attention to the negative in your head,
Turn that talk around, generate positive, it said,
And if you’re having trouble putting circumstances to bed,
Get on YouTube and listen to your favorite thought-leader instead!
(That would be Brendon Burchard by the way,
Look him up whenever you need to brighten your day.)
So I started thanking God for Dave, he really is a dear,
And I am thankful he knows all about responding in love or reacting in fear.
For it has been such a blessing, his response to me staying here,
He has been supportive and kind, even though he wants me near.
My thoughts then turned back to going to Ardmore,
And the feeling crept in that it was some kind of chore.
So I adjusted my perspective and prayed for my will no more,
And I felt proud and humbled and thankful when I walked out the door.
If you know me, then you know I like to save the best for last,
Which is the Thanksgiving Dinner we attended at noon – it was a blast!
It was at the Hastings Senior Citizens Center, where we had quite a cast,
There were so many I wanted to see but the time went by too fast.
I really love this town and so I am trying to figure it out –
What we are going to do.
Sometimes I feel overwhelmed and so I start to doubt
That this, I will get through.
But then God somehow reminds me that in Him I can trust,
And that I can only live one moment at a time, and adjust my thinking to this, I must.
I do not know what our futures hold,
If I will remain bold or if I’ll even grow old,
But God does and He will let me know when I need to.
Needing to know before then, just makes me blue.
