the difference...



i got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day;
i had so much to accomplish
that i didn't have time to pray.


problems just tumbled about me,
and heavier came each task.
"why doesn't God help me?" i wondered.
He answered, "you didn't ask."

i wanted to see joy and beauty,
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak;
i wondered why God didn't show me.
He said, "but you didn't seek."

i tried to come into God's presence;
i used all the keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
"my child, you didn't knock."

i woke up early this morning,
and paused before entering the day;
i had so much to accomplish
that i had to take time to pray.

Hi Sheila, I have always loved this poem, thankyou for Sharing it.. and just look at little Kookie, what a doll..I could never get Beatie to wear anything like this, she is just such a boof head of a dog, very naughty, she rips jumpers off and chews them to bits.. will write soon I promise, had a few illnesses going on here, with the change of the weather.

Love Carol

Sometimes we ponder on our problems so much for a solution that we forget to think of the solution of all issues....Look up to the almighty...He will show the way!!!
