Take No Day For Granted


Over Mountain of Un-civilization


Fountain Of Civilization And Naturally Different


Today, I see the light

That has always, brightly shined,

It was never out of sight

But I was just too blind,

I have climbed over the mountain

To civilization,

Now drinking from the fountain

Of a spiritual foundation,

Where there's change and new hope,

Though this world‘s in disarray,

To living in the scope,

Of Jesus Christ today,

Today, I shan’t look back

For there’s more glory ahead,

To focus on His righteousness

And being spiritually fed,

The greatest blessing of all time

Is living to see today,

Walkin’ in rhythm and talkin’ in rhymes,

The Lord is making my way…

The New Opportunity

Today, we can start anew from yesterday or last night. No need to regret what you did. God gives us a new day to start all over and live it righteously. We have the opportunity to today, to make up for what we did not do the day before. The new opportunity is Today.

At The Cross

      Yes, every day is a bran new day to start over and try again. Every day is a new day, the first day of the rest of your life. So if one fails in some way today, there is always tomorrow to start again and do better. Merry Christmas Word55!

      This is a beautiful poem. It reminds us that every day is beautiful so long as we focus on Jesus in everything that we see and do. At the same time, I love the quality of your poem. It's not a crackerjack style poem, but something that is at the heart of you, making it truly loving, personal and meaningful.

      Hi Lady G, What a pleasant surprise, you read my Today poem. It was featured in a poetry anthology book a few years ago. I was honored that it was chosen. I'm glad it is still being loved. Thank you for stopping by Today* :-)

      I loved the poem. Sometimes the light is just a tad too bright. Then our eyes begin to focus and then we can open them and see what is for us to see.

      Word55, light is always there to see and be blessed. One who sees it is pleased in his soul but who enables others to see is the real doer. You awaken us toward light through this beautiful piece. Greatly appreciated and voted. Thank you.
