Simply Sunday

For This Day

Too much time
Spent looking back
And my mind
Becomes cluttered
With only questions
No clear answers

Too much time
Spent looking ahead
And my heart
Becomes unsettled
Hovering over
All the what-if’s

Time wasted
Ignoring moments
Formed for this day
Missing opportunities
For peace to come
Right when needed

Time guarded
Thankful when
My heart and mind
Can rest securely
On the promises
Covering all my days

This past week had its challenges. Everyone in my house was sick with a cold and cough. It was the first week back to school. Needless to say, there was little time for writing or reading the words of my fellow bloggers.

In the middle of all that, I was reminded of the importance of being thankful for each day. And to look for the good in each day. It may be cold outside, but the sun is shining brightly!

  1. Kelley, I love your words~so perfectly penned. I’m a worrier at times and I’m striving so hard, during similar challenges, to maintain my peace and stop borrowing trouble for tomorrow. You’re in my daily prayers and I hope everyone recovers well and that blessings fall on you and your family and students around you. ❤️❤️🙏🏻
