Contentment and Comfortability

Updated on April 9, 2011

Contentment and Comfortability

Contentment and comfortability
is what I seek today,
to cherish the gifts I'm given
and enjoy each moment's array.

To play the role that I've been cast
and give it all I've got...
To make the most of every day
for I only get one shot.

I seek to do a kindness,
an act that's veiled in love,
a debt that I can surely pay,
and always be proud of.

I seek to learn, if but one thing
to exercise my brain...
each day a little knowledge
is a link within my chain.

And I seek a little laughter
each day, a dose or two...
to keep my spirit healthy,
It's good medicine, its true.

And finally, I say a prayer,
for here it is I find...
contentment and comfortability
in my daily state of mind.

      O Ruby you are so right! My favorite picture of Jesus is the "Laughing Jesus"...I truly believe God has a sense of humor! Thanks!

      Laughter is the best medicine. A day without it is not a fun day. Spiritually, i believe God likes a good laugh.

      Cheers

      Thank you, Spirit Whisperer, it is actually what I am currently learning! With a little help from "my friends" (smile)

      mentoru2wealth, you are correct there, but the comfortability to which I refer here involves being comfortable in my own skin...which is something I actively seek...and is a direct result of my spiritual fitness...thank you for your read and comment!

      This is actually a really inspiring poem. In it you show how we can direct our thought to achieve what we all ultimately seek and to make an effort to change old habits. This poem says it beautifully. Thank you.
