Of Options and Ownership

Whether it comes in pink or gray wrapping, it requires from us the same.I took the gray photo today;) The pink one was a year ago when we were enjoying summer-like temps.

It comes, like many before
Its circuit from east to west
Requires from us nothing more
But just to do our best

By gifted breath we learn
It teaches, tries and tests
This day of no return
Deserves our very best

Before the veil of night
Shrouds its merit in rest
Will we have borne its plight
With our utter best?
For we are not our own
Nor by our own hand blessed
So love behooves us then
To give this day our best

It comes like many before
Traversing east to west
Dawn draws ajar its door
A day to do our best

...but to this man will I look, even to him
that is poor and of a contrite spirit and
trembles at my word. Isa. 66:2
