Return With Honor
See, listen, pray....
Let not the cacophony of the world drown out its beauty.
I wish that I could always see
the things right now in front of me.
When looking takes so little time
and God’s own beauty’s so sublime.
He gave me all my minutes, too
to see life’s colors yellow, red , and blue.
The whole rainbow a reminder, too,
Of His patience, love, forgiveness true.
Oh, how conceited can I be
to think that my cares such as be,
should separate my time for Thee,
and shift my focus to other things,
away from God and my king of kings.
Grant Lord that I might be
thankful for all thou givest me,
and use my time, pray constantly,
for all Thy children where e’er they be,
on land, in air, even beneath the sea,
that one day they may safe and free
return with honor home to Thee,

Enjoy the enjoyable every day.
