House by the lake.

Simpler Things

This came to me during the night after spending all day yesterday at the hospital and confirming
with my surgeon that my hip replacement of two years ago has definitely got to be replaced.

          It's the simple things I forget,
          The little things God's given me;
          Like this piece of land on the lake,
          Waves gently lapping at the beach.

          The sweet sound of birds in the air,
          Seem to be singing harmony;
          Leaves on the trees slowly dancing,
          To the tune of the mountain breeze.

          The loons on the lake sounding out,
          Create a tune that is unique;
          Family and friends that just stop by,
          Simply to sit and talk with me.

          Knowing that my children are safe,
          God sets aside need to worry;
          Healed, delivered and simply blessed,
          On this trail that leads to Glory.

          Knowing all prayers will be answered,
          Simply in His own way and time;
          He never holds anything back,
          God forgives my every crime.

          Simple words of encouragement,
          The promise of God Almighty;
          Angels to help family afar,
          All of the love that surrounds me.

          Simple things we should not forget,
          Simple things we don't really need;
          Yet I love all these simple things,
          Things not dealing with glut or greed.
