Time – A Poem

Last night I was at a friends putting together supply bags for our upcoming Women’s Retreat. It has been a busy week and I knew I hadn’t yet posted my Thankful Thursday poem. This is the first time since starting Thankful Thursday that my poem was not written several days, if not a full week, before the date it was posted. As I was cleaning up my stuff a poem came to me to post for today. It’s short, just like our time here on this earth.

Time

There never seems to be enough of it
I
‘m thankful for what time I have and hope I use it well
May the Lord be glorified by what I do with each hour of each day
E
ternity awaits when time will be no more

I will extol the LORD at all times;
   his praise will always be on my lips.
I will glory in the LORD;
   let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the LORD with me;
   let us exalt his name together.
Psalm 34:1-3 (NIV).

    • Linda, What a nice comment! Thank you. This week has definitely been a lesson in patience and waiting on God. I much prefer when my poems come to me a week or so ahead of time, but that was not His plan for this week. Peace, Linda
