Poem reminds reader that each new day is a blessing

If you wake up with aches or pains, discouragement, sorrows or maybe troubles, remember that each new day is truly a blessing.

I wrote the following poem that was read at my church, Perseverance Chapel United Methodist. I wrote it May 10. One evening while looking out my window, I took the back of an envelope to write down the words as they came to me. Before long, I had completed the following poem.


“When evening has come and it is the end of the day, always thank God for the blessings that have come your way.

“When the stars shine bright and the moon gives it glow, always thank God how much he has blessed you today.

“When I awake and see a new day, whether it be sunshine, cloudy or rain, I ask God what blessings do you have for me today?

“I don’t know what this day may bring, but I do know God will be walking beside me.”
