We are living in uncertain time and sometimes it can get stressful. it is best not to obsess over things you have little control over. Take a walk in the park; clear your head. Enjoy the sight and scenes of nature. Watch the birds in the trees; admire the flowers. Breathe in deep and exhale. There are still beautiful things to enjoy!

Through This Journey of Today {G. B. McClain}

When the sunlight in the morning
Parts the shadows of the night,
And the world once more awakens
To a day so fresh and bright…
With the dew-kissed flowers so fragrant,
As the birds begin to sing
Long before the sound of traffic,
To this day its noise will bring…
This is when we need to seek Him
As we store this peace away,
And we ask our lord to guide us
Through this journey of today.

For the clouds may hide the sunshine
Long before this day is through;
But when storms of life are raging,
He can give us peace anew;
And each day with all its problems,
With its joy and sometimes strife,
Can be like a gift so precious
On this journey known as life.
All this beauty He has given
And this peace we store away
Are the gifts the Father gives us,
As we journey through today.

A Day to Praise {Helen Gleason}

It’s a lovely day to praise the Lord,
A day that’s fresh and new
That’s filled with Nature‘s beauty,
Created just for you.

It’s a lovely day to look, to see
The flowers, the trees, the birds.
The music of their voices rings,
None sweeter can be heard.

It’s a lovely day to thank the Lord
As all around we see
The vastness of blue skies above
And feel the Summer breeze.

It’s a lovely day to thank and praise
For a world that’s all in tune,
The wonders of the ocean’s tides,
The stars, the sun the moon.

It’s a lovely day to think of how
He cares for us each day.
As we journey in this life,
He’s there to lead the way.

It’s a lovely day because He gives
A hope that we can share
On earth a glimpse of Heaven
Where mansions are prepared.

A day to see, to thank, to praise
For such a God of love,
For blessings here on earth He gives
And eternal life above.
