Joys of Life

God brings fullness of joy

Father, I thank You every day for my wife

Karen is the second greatest joy of my life

Next to the joy of knowing You
She is kind, loving, bold in faith and funny

I love to call her “Honey”

Help us to remember our spouse each day

In the business of life take time for them to pray

Ask that the river of Your richest blessings flow into their life

Take time to love them and say, “Darling, you mean so much to me!”

In what I say and do I pray this you’ll always see.”

There is so much in this world of be here get this done

We can fail to take time to give thanks to You, the Holy One

For all the blessings to us You do give

For each breath that without it we would not:live

For a heart that does forgive

Father, I wrote this poem today for me too

Because I need to remember You alone get me through

Each day I need You in my life

To be my strength in times of strife

To say , “You’ll always be the greatest joy of my life!”

About osborne2029

I enjoy spending time with people just having a coffee or talking about life, philosophy, religion, politics or sharing a favorite joke or story. We learn from one another as we interact and share our joys, challenges and even our times of sadness. I enjoy reading, writing, singing and sharing in the blessing of community whether that is one on one or in groups. I'm married and am powned by two kitties named Sir William of Lounge a.k.a. Sir Lounge a Lot and Princess Catherine of Chaos a.k.a. Her Royal Highness Catherine of Englehart. I m in an M.A.-Ph.D program with St. James the Elder Theological Seminary to train to become a psychotherapist and priest. Let us pray for and reach out to each other with kindness, love and an embracing compassion. We can working together be servants with two open hands to those in need so that hate, indifference and inequality would lose and love will win. The peace and abounding joy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
