Best day of my Life ( A poem )

Posted by Maki Jun 7, 2020

BEST DAY OF MY LIFE




Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized
that this is the best day of my life, ever!

There were times when I wondered
if I would make it to today;
but I did!
And because I did
I'm going to celebrate!

Today, I'm going to celebrate what
an unbelievable life I have had so far:
the accomplishments,
the many blessings,
and yes, even the hardships
because they have served to make
me stronger.

I will go through this day
with my head held high,
and a happy heart.

I will marvel at God's
seemingly simple gifts:
the morning dew,
the sun, the clouds,
the trees, the flowers,
the birds.
Today, none of these
miraculous creations
will escape my notice.

Today, I will share my excitement
for life with other people.
I'll make someone smile.
I'll go out of my way to perform
an unexpected act of kindness
for someone I don't even know.

Today, I'll give a sincere
compliment who seems down.
I'll tell a child how special he is,
and I'll tell someone I love
just how deeply I care for them
and how much they mean to me.

Today is the day I quit worrying
about what I don't have
and start being grateful for all
the wonderful things God
has already given me.

I'll remember that to worry is
just a waste of time
because my faith in God
and his Divine Plan ensures
everything will be just fine.

Today, before I go to bed,
I'll go outside and raise my eyes
to the heavens.
I will stand in awe at the
beauty of the stars and the moon,
and I will praise God
for these magnificent treasures.

As the day ends and I lay my
head down on my pillow, I will
thank the Almighty for the best
day of my life.
And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child,
excited with expectation because
I know tomorrow is going to be...
The Best Day Of My Life

Tandem Bike Ride

Posted by Maki Feb 26, 2020

Here is the poem that has helped me often in my quit but not just in my quit but in every day life as well . 

It has many titles but I have it under Tandem bike Ride . It has also been known as Road of Life .

Original author is unknown . 

 

Tandem Bike Ride 


When I first met Christ
It seemed as though life was rather like a bike ride,
But it was a tandem bike,
And I noticed that Christ
Was in the back helping me pedal.

I don't know just when it was that
He suggested we change places,
But life has not been the same since.

When I had control, I knew the way,
It was rather boring, but predictable...
It was the shortest distance between two points.

But when He took the lead,
He knew delightful long cuts,
Up mountains, and through rocky places,
At breakneck speeds,
It was all I could do to hang on!
Even though it looked like madness,
He said, "Pedal"

I worried and was anxious and asked,
"Where are you taking me?"
He laughed and didn't answer,
And I started to learn to trust.

I forgot my boring life
And entered into the adventure.
And when I'd say, "I'm scared,"
He'd lean back and touch my hand.

He took me to people with gifts that I needed.
Gifts of healing, acceptance, and joy.
He said, "Give the gifts away;
They're extra baggage, too much weight."

So I did, I gave them to the people we met,
And I found that in giving I received,
And still our burden was light.

I did not trust Him, at first, In control of my life.
I thought He'd wreck it;
But He knows bike secrets,
Knows how to make it bend to take sharp corners,
Knows how to jump to clear high rocks,
Knows how to fly to shorten scary passages.

And I am learning to shut up
and pedal in the strangest places,
And I'm beginning to enjoy the view
And the cool breeze on my face
With my delightful constant companion, Jesus Christ.

And when I'm sure I just can't do anymore,
He just smiles and says...
"Pedal."
