AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

I murmured that my house was too small and in need of much repair,
Until a storm moved in that left many homeless, possessions stripped bare.
Forgive me Lord

I grumbled about arthritus, deafness in one ear,
Growing old made my mind live in dread and constant fear,
Then I rememberd a good friend with cancer in the last stage,
preparing to write her final, closing page.
Forgive me Lord

I complained about outdated clothes and worn out shoes,
Until Mary, a diabetic, both feet she did lose.
Forgive me Lord

I murmured how high groceries had kept my cuboard bare,
Until I saw faces of children in hunger and despair.
Forgive me Lord

I grumbled about my old car, two colors it had,
But then credit card debt and car payments would have made me very sad.
Forgive me Lord

I complained about my prayers not answered as I thought they should,
Then I read about your Sovereignty, you allow that which is for my own good.
Forgive me Lord

So for today my prayer is for an Attitude of Gratitude and a mind and heart thats
true,
My soul will rest in calmness as I put my trust in you.
Thank you Lord
