OH, TO BE GLAD AGAIN

Oh, to be glad again!
not just glad for any reason
but glad
just to be glad
for reasons of existence
for a chance to look ahead
and plan for
ways to make life better
and happier
and freer.

It is said
to be glad
is the harvest
of the quiet eye...
the not looking long distance for happiness

Being glad is
Where we refuse
to let trifles
ruin our moments
of peace
and contentment.

Oh, to be glad again!

    I am up so late...
    That early evening nap was not a good idea.
    And, guess what the poem you responded to here is not what I have posted now. I did not like it
    so much. It sounded like a sermon
    ... not really me.
    So, now I have this poem.
    I am glad you did like the other
    poem though.... Thanks!
    Now... I have to try and get some
    more sleep.
    Good night... or rather good morning!:)

    Sorry about that!
    I did not know anyone saw that poem about my friend Linda.
    Maybe I will put it on again...
    as Linda would like it.
    She does read my blog.
    Dang... it is late... I have to get to bed.

  7. I'm always the most glad when I hear my boys laughing together and when I'm praising in church. Nothing comes close to those feelings.
