I Will (repost)

I will seize today
for it is shiny and new
sparkling with promise
a gift wrapped
with moments for delight
to savor.

I will let go of yesterday’s
wrinkled regrets
faded failures
broken bows of disappointment
moments to forget
and forgive.

I will not treasure tomorrow
for God has not promised
on earth
a gift out of reach
withered moments to hug
and love.

And I will live with gratitude.
Every day.

    I have just recently discovered your blog via the IAM blog and have been reading and pondering…Today’s post is particularly meaningful for me this morning…especially “I will let go of yesterday’s…Finished.” Thank you for posting it.

      I’m so glad, Carol. Welcome, and thanks for taking the time to comment. That letting go stuff. Hard stuff.
