I Saw Today, I Was OK

Standard

I saw today my neighbor with a repaired broken hip,

No one likes hospitals but seeing her BIG BIG smile was well worth my trip…

I Saw Today, I Was OK.

I put away my stressings, to count my blessings. 

.

I felt cold today from frozen toes,

But the cat begged and then was SO con-tent outside, so you know how that goes…

I Saw Today, I Was OK.

I put away my stressings, to count my blessings. 

.

I walked today slowly politely behind a man with a crutch. 

He had just one leg, a loss I can’t even dream as having such.

I Saw Today, I Was OK.

I put away my stressings, to count my blessings. 

.

I held today cash to pay some bills.

I can make plans. I can even plan some frills and thrills.

I Saw Today, I Was OK.

I put away my stressings, to count my blessings. 

.

I heard today recorded 911 calls from a school shooting, a voice crying. 

A brave 10 year old begging help for the dying.

I Saw Today, in vast comparison, I Was OK, my own children were OK.

I put away my stressings, to count my blessings.

.

I consulted the Lord today. 

There is so much UGH in life’s fray.

There’s cruddy ads on the airways.

Friends turned foes these strifeful days.

To debate is an opportunity, to mudsling distracts, we are not countries that fall under dictator ways. We must rise above the crud TODAY.  We must choose LOVE today.

.

I consulted the Lord today. 

A broken world can not heal in any human way.

So there ARE prayers, 

There ARE HOPEFUL prayers.

Why don’t we pray for others today. 

Accept our own blessings and say: “I am OK.”

.

When I have called upon the Lord, He gave me peace, He showed me love.

He gave me action or inaction with pondering. He sheltered my day. 

He responded to my past jams with His amazing plans. I must believe Him now, He told me He will resolve all my troubles, our troubles, in HIS WAY.

.

I Saw Today, I Was OK.

I put away my stressings, to count my blessings. 

.

Let us wait on the Lord and pray. 

Amen

Psalm 116

love the Lord, for he heard my voice;  he heard my cry for mercy.

Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.

The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord: “Lord, save me!”

The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion. The Lord protects the unwary; when I was brought low, he saved me.

Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you. For you, Lord, have delivered me from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.

I trusted in the Lord when I said, “I am greatly afflicted”; in my alarm I said, “Everyone is a liar.”

What shall I return to the Lord for all his goodness to me? I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord. I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people.

Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his faithful servants.

Truly I am your servant, Lord; I serve you just as my mother did; you have freed me from my chains.

I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the Lord.

I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people, in the courts of the house of the Lord— in your midst, Jerusalem.

Praise the Lord.
