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.
