    The majesty of beautiful Sunsets,
    Oft times, begets
    A somber review of regrets
    Birthed by unfulfilled debts
    To myself and others
    And yet
    Its glorious spectrum
    Also sets my soul to hum
    While I thankfully succumb
    To the grand sum
    Of mercies and blessings,
    My daily assessing
    Of what IS more than what isn’t

    Yes, before I peruse where I may have been remiss
    I’ll remember God’s divine set-in -the sky promise
    And, I’ll remind myself as I reflect on my day
    That Rainbows don’t contain the color “Grey.”
    So
    When the next sunset I see
    And I’ve wistfully sat and pondered
    Over what time I may have squandered
    I’ll just let my mind recall an old gospel hymn
    Which brightens what once was grim...

    For no matter what’s left undone
    No matter how far the race be run
    And may, in looking back, cast a dark pall
    I’ll remember to mark the times I get up
    And not the times I fall

    Indeed, insignificant are the darts
    Which seek to destroy
    I’ll just look UP and count it all JOY!

    Yes, the next time I see a sunset
    When my work-day is through
    I’ll sing, “I may not have done all the things that I wanted to do.”
    And, before one minute of it I survey
    I’ll raise my voice and confidently say
    But, Lord, it’s been a mighty good day.”

    Thanks for being inspired. I love it when poetry meets me at my point of need. And tonight it is like God put those words on your heart and in your pen just for me.

    Well, you are truly welcomed, Sister ASP.

    Actually, God is truly working because this poem is a RE-POST from a Christian Poetry thread.---I ALMOST didn't do it, and something told me to anyway.

    See....That's God, Sister. HE knew that you needed those words tonight and sent me to give them to you.

    Our God is an AWESOME God! :bowdown:

    Thank you much, Brother Rich.

    Yes, we are all our own worst enemies.

    We beat ourselves up over what we wanted to do/should've done and didn't do and what we did do that we shouldn't have done.

    There's an old expression that says, "Never look back...Something may be gaining on you!" (lol) ....Funny but oh-so true!


    Thanks again!

    yes sister Cherryblossom more often then any we down ourselves over things in the past
    beyond looking ahead to our tomorrow's goal......I'm a victim of it all have bath myself
    in the grit of yesterday instead of moving forward to a brighter and blessed day
    each day is a good day no matter how bad it may seem or what road block dat comes
    my way
    Thank you for the eye opener sis...
