Guide for the Day
by Esther Thornburg
(Cantril Iowa, USA)
When daylight spreads its light
Darkness silently takes its leave.
Activities of the day have much to give.
They reveal the way we live.
Early to rise brings its prize.
Challenges today may bring a surprise.
They may require a bit more than we realize.
Are there blessings hid in disguise?
Do caring eyes view a need?
What is revealed in what we see?
It may determine the labor of the day.
Let loving ways come to stay.
Will we plant this day in memory lane?
Should we take another look?
Let thank you ways enjoy their stay.
Their blessings do express our life's way.
