As I sit here by my window today
Happy thoughts coming my way
Birds are singing in the trees
The gentle rustling of the leaves.

How marvelous to be alive
To see the view of azure skies.
To know the love of all my kin
And to feel the joy it gives within.

The pleasures of another day
To enjoy what God has displayed.
The beauty of nature and earth
Combined in rhythm like verse.

All of this, came just in time
To lift my spirits and give me rhyme.
A writers block had settled in
And was determined, it was going win.

Please forgive me, Father I prayed
For there is one who suffered one day
The pain that I shall never comprehend
He sacrificed His life, to forgive my sins.

No greater love will there ever be
The love He gave us on Calvary
So let me suffer a bit here in this life
To learn the love that he provides.

Lest I forget how you suffered in shame.
Just to save a sinner like me
Forgive me Oh Lord, open my eyes to see!

I love you more than my tongue can tell
You saved me from the depths of hell
And gave me a beautiful life eternally
So may I always, be mindful of THEE.

Scripture: 1 John 5: 1 ~4

Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the
christ is born of God; and every one that
loveth him that begat loveth him also
that is begotten of him.

By this we know that we love the children
of God, when we love God,
and keep his commandments.

For this is the love of God, that we keep
his commandments; and his commandments
are not grievous.

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh
the world: and this is the victory that
overcometh the world, even our faith
