    Post Life's Tug of War...

    Hi all! I found this poem in my church newsletter and wanted to share it with you all...ENJOY! :-)

    Life's Tug of War

    Life can seem ungrateful and not always kind
    Life can pull at your heartstrings and play with your mind
    life can be blissful and happy and free
    Life can put beauty in the things that you see
    Life can place challenges right at your feet
    Life can make good of the hardships we meet
    life can overwhelm you and make your head spin
    Life can reward those determined to win
    Life can be hurtful and not always fair
    Life can surround you with people who care
    Life clearly does offer its ups and its downs
    Life's days can bring you both smiles and frowns
    Life teaches us to take the good with the bad
    Life is a mixture of happy and sad
    Take the life that you have and give it your best
    Think happy..let God do the rest
    Take the challenges that life has laid at your feet
    Take pride and be thankful for each one you meet
    to yourself give forgiveness if you stumble and fall
    Take each day that is dealt you and give it your all
    Take the love that you've given and return it with care
    Have faith that when needed it will always be there
    Take time to find the beauty in the things that you see
    Take life's simple pleasures let them set your heart free
    The idea here is simply to even the score
    As you are met and faced with Life's ug of War!

    what a nice poem.. thanks for posting it. i really find that i need to slow down, and be appreciative for what i do have instead of getting hung up on what i dont - it's so hard, tho.. this poem does help you to re-examine your thoughts.
