Show Your Summer Smile!

Lay aside your busy work,
put on a summer smile;
look around, enjoy what you see,
appreciation is your style.

All too soon a day is over
and quickly nights are gone;
Go, enjoy the scenery,
if only from your lawn.

Flowers bloom so sweetly,
and even weeds are growing;
each a summer miracle
our Creator's touch is showing.

As clouds gather overhead
perhaps soon it will be raining;
Yes, it is quite warm outside,
but what good is complaining?

Life is for thinking and learning,
paying attention to see,
finding in every circumstance
interesting complexity.

Was this wondrous life your plan?
You'll want to take some time to pray,
thanking God for His goodness
starting now, today.
