The Joyful Things

At times I’m so discouraged
with the problems of the day,
I fail to see the joyful things
that are along the way.

When troubles overwhelm me
it’s then my nerves may fray.
That’s when I need to take the time
To simply sit and pray.

Reflecting on God’s many gifts,
it makes me so aware
of all the joy in little things
around me everywhere!

I must try to remember
though problems come my way,
not to miss the joyful things
and the beauty of the day.

Have a blessed week.
