Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

Celebrate the Moment

Beautiful Birth, Glorious God 


With open heart

And with honest mind

I reflect now on years past

Which span behind


May in these years

I see the moving Hand

Of God at work for

His good long planned


May I look also

At the years ahead

A horizon beautiful

Before me does spread


If always I take

God’s sacred Way

Through joy and trial

Through night and day


For He created me

Knew me from eternity

So does He create good

From all that we see

Having looked behind

And looked also ahead

I celebrate the moment

The “now” instead


For every moment

One from another does shift

Is from our Heavenly Father

A precious, divine gift


And so each day

Is also divine gift so great

So may we celebrate these days

These gifts our Father does create
