My computer shut down and I lost the last verse I was typing... cant remenber it all offhand :/
Will try to later... am on my mobile phone at the minute...
Tomorrow isn't promised.. and yesterday is gone.
So let's live for the present! Turn the radio on!
Put on your dancing shoes, chase your heartache away...
Got to make the most of what we've got, the sunshine, or a stormy day!
Life isn't always happy... sometimes sorrow comes in...
We get down and troubled, and lack energy within.
But God knows all about us, and the burdens we've to bear...
That's why just at this moment, my heart's asending to Him in prayer.
For He promises strength for the weary, and rest for our soul.
If we only come to Him.... He can make us again to feel whole.
For HE never wearies or slumbers, His ear is always open to our cry
He can heal the deepest heartache, give sustenance and satisfy...
Olwin, as the others have said it's quite frustrating when we lose something we wrote. I once wrote a full poem which I was impressed by and forgot so save it and didn't have a clue what I'd just written lol
Anyway this piece alone is beautifully I think and is quite a personal write as though we have put off days we should believe in 'him' but most importantly ourselves because in all honesty if we don't believe in ourselves who else will.
I like the way this poem starts - It is so frustrating when an inspiration word, idea or sentence is lost. I wonder where they go? There must be libraries of poetry anthologies up in the ether...
This is an inspirational write. Living for today and not spoiling what we've got worrying about tomorrow.
I guess it is all about faith, faith in 'him' and perhaps more importantly in ourselves.
Thank you for posting this.

Your footnote (at the top of the page :) ) had me in stitches.
I will come back to this when it is in its completion, but let me just say that the content here is a great stand alone piece anyway.
Inspiring and cheerful throughout - what better sort of poem to read on a warm, sunny day?
