Day of Rest
On Monday, I rise, and head back to work,
Greet all with a smile, and no duty shirk.
At lunch, someone seeks some gossip to share.
I ask what is said when I am not there.
On Tuesday's drive home, I see a car stalled,
And stop to find out if help has been called.
She borrows my phone to call for a tow.
I wave off the bills she tries to bestow.
On Wednesday, I stop to buy milk and bread.
The brand new cashier looks stricken with dread.
She makes a mistake. I say "It's okay,
We all make mistakes." Her smile makes my day.
On Thursday, a friend who's grieving stops by.
I make us some tea. We pray and we cry.
I give her a hug, reminding, one day,
In heaven our tears are all wiped away.
On Friday, I stop, my neighbor to see,
She's down with the flu, this mother of three.
I simmer some soup, once kids are all fed,
And play for a while, then put them to bed.
On Saturday morn, my caller ID,
A number displays, I'd rather not see,
I help Grandma shop, and errands complete,
While listening to her stories repeat.
On Sunday, at church, the doors I walk through,
My pulpit depart, and sit in a pew.
My spirit's refreshed, renewed by the Word,
For sermons lived out for those who've not heard.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
