One Thing You Must Believe

One Thing You Must Believe

 

Enjoy your life today.
Thanksgiving is on the way.
They come and go so soon.
Look at the Harvest Moon.

Take a peaceful walk.
To beautiful nature talk.
Holidays come and go.
They come so fast you know.

Find joy in little things.
A little bird that sings.
Wake up! Enjoy today.
Only good things say.

Don't wait another day.
Enjoy your life today.
Holidays come and go.
They come and go you know.

Your joy is not in them.
Or any other whim.
Take pleasure in today.
Though holidays are on the way.

The holiday it will leave.
One thing you must believe.
That joy comes from within.
It's always with you, then.

(c) 2013 Sandi J. Holland

I so look forward to the holidays, don't you? Seems like there's always something that we're waiting on to happen; so that we can be happy and experience joy and pleasure. It's so easy to forget about today when we're so wrapped up in tomorrow. Before we know it, that long-awaited event or holiday has come and gone. And then for a moment, the light seems to have gone out of our lives, and the joy with it. Create things everyday in your life that give you that same kind of joy while you're anticipating an event, while you're waiting on any holiday to arrive. You can, because it does not come from without, but from within.

Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit. 
(Psalm 51:12, KJV)

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy
(Psalm 126:5, KJV)

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.  
(Psalm 16:11, KJV)
