    As I sit here soaking in
    The warm rays of sunlight
    It feels me with energy
    And I feel
    Alright

    No
    I feel great
    Actually
    For He
    Has moved me
    To the top again
    Setting me free

    Opening my heart
    Allowing me to sing
    With joy and happiness
    What a wonderful thing

    This smile that you see
    On my face here
    Right now
    Didn’t get here very easily
    It was turned
    Upside down

    I wasn’t feeling very well
    Not to good at all
    Life in full swing
    Takes me up
    And
    Pushes down

    I ride it like a wave
    Unable to touch down
    At times it gets high
    And I try not to cry

    For I am tough
    And I am strong
    And I’ll make it through
    You’ll see

    His strength is inside
    Always there
    To guide me

    Thanks Kim.

    Cindy, very true. We should look for the positive in every negative.

    yes, yes! Though we are tossed around, from side to side, up and down...It is HIS love that gives us the strength to HOLD ON, during the height of any storm...
    Beautifully written!
