An invitation continuously conveyed.
Approaching each day with anticipation of bliss,
Web's of despondency purposing to invade.
Rising early with peace, joy and tranquility,
Overwhelming circumstances pound at my abode.
Disregarding the taunts; my solid resolution,
Reminiscing of blessing and riches bestowed.
Emotions of happiness; momentary and fleeting,
Determined by events at present.
Influencing decisions both acceptable and horrid,
Surrounding futures and blaming intent.
Substantial beauty in minuscule habitations,
God's splendor having no boundary.
Simplicity establishes perpetual delight,
Devising no excuses nor begging apology.
Sustaining hope throughout life's journey,
Steadfastness of faith alleviating worries.
Abandoning complaints with selfish attitudes,
Encompassing moments as endless memories.
Resolving to be happy; arousing passion for life,
Deliberately avoiding unnecessary opposition.
Holding fast to standards long forgotten,
Remembering wise words of profound wisdom.
Eternity beholds neither money nor success,
Hearts of adoration accepted and embraced.
Loving kindness prevailing with disdain's surrender,
Joyous ones pass through beautiful pearl gates.
