Thanking the Lord

Updated on April 1, 2012
With many thanks this sun drenched and absolutely beautiful Palm Sunday
With many thanks this sun drenched and absolutely beautiful Palm Sunday

We must never forget to say
Thank you Lord, thank you for another day
When we have sad times
Our comfort should lie in the fact that the Lord is by our side
And He’ll never leave us as long as He knows we believe
Each day should be a celebration
Knowing that we are able to live and go on
Every day is like a treasure which brings us new changes
A time to rejoice that we are part of this wonderful world
Each day brings the good and the bad
And it is each morning and every night that we should say
Thank you Lord for every sunrise and every sunset

We should never forget to extend a helping hand
Because everyone is not as fortunate as we are
Never forget to be there for the innocent children
And for animals both domestic and wild
The wonder of the changing seasons
Each day should be a celebration
Because we’re still here and the Lord is near
Each day we should be in awe of the world around us
And be willing to do our best for our fellow man
And every night that falls we should say thank you Lord for it all!

      Gypsy Rose Lee,

      Absoultely Beautiful! I love the poem, the pictures and 'Nearer My God To Thee' rounds this out to be a most excellent hub.

      How Jesus loves us, so much that He laid down His life for us, and now we can be blessed with salvation and life eternal.

      Great Job!

      Have a blessed Palm Sunday. 'Hosanna' cried the people as they laid their palm branches on the road. 'Hosanna'

      Ciao...Princess Prisca

      Thank you so very much for writing this beautiful hub. Yes, Praise Him always! Our mouths should always be filled with praises for Him. I don't know about you, but I don't want to be out-praised by a stone, as He tells us in His Word that even a stone praises him, as does the whole planet earth, the mountains, etc. praise Him. Wow. Awesome. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      In the heart of every baby

      you’ll find the beautiful love of God

      In the sparkle of every shining star

      is the brilliance of God’s genius

      In every drop of precious water

      is the immeasurable kindness of God

      When you touch the texture of a leaf

      you feel the gentleness of God

      It’s a wonderful privilege

      to love God and say thank you

      There’s a very special feeling you get inside

      when you care for and look after God’s creation

      It’s so rich and so meaningful

      to be living each day to please God

      Giving God gratitude

      brings more miracles

      into your life.

      I was just notified that one of my hubs was plagiarized on that same website http://education.bigezine by Mary Gerken!!! I feel so violated, I had written my poem way back on May 28, 2006!!! I just started hubbing. I filed a complaint with them and told them to remove it immediately. How does one protect their poetry, etc. from being plagiarized? Should we be putting a copyright date and (all rights reserved)? Faith Reaper

      Thank you so much Audrey. Faith is what matters and we must never lose it.

      Thank you so much for your wonderful comment Seeker7 and glad you enjoyed it.

      Thanks you for reading Capedium and every day should be a blessing.

      homesteadbound thanks for letting me know. Does this mean they want to share in the creativity or they want to put one over on me????

      All good questions Faith Reaper. I still don't understand how this is even possible. Doesn't anyone check these things out???? Wait a moment another hubber Hattie found her poem on that sight along with her all rights reserved. lol

      Up, awesome, and beautiful Gypsy. Absolutely beautiful words my friend. I am very thankful for every second that I have and I try my best to let him know that. Life is short. If we are lucky, we may see 70-80 years. Always be thankful for everything. Beautiful message.
