[87 words]

At times I’m so discouraged
With 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
Does make 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.
