Time Out

When troubles seem to be getting me down,
I take time out -- just to look around.

I open my eyes, and what do I see?
Many who would give their eye teeth to be me.

To walk for some is a real chore.
For others, it's impossible to open a door.

Some live in darkness all of their lives.
Some have never heard their own baby's cries.

Some have trouble drawing a breath.
Some their heart beats are near death.

Some to wheelchairs they are confined.
Some are without a functioning mind.

So when troubles seem to be getting me down,
Why, I take time out -- and just look around.

With my eyes open, there's so much to see,
The many wonderful gifts, God has given me.
