What is life that thou art MINDFUL about!!!


Life is full of Joys and a Ton of sorrow,

we often worry about tomorrow whether

we’ll be washed in tears and sorrow. Life

is a test we must always hang in there and

try to do our best. Today we are here and

tomorrow we may whither like the grass and

return to the dust, then what’s all the fuss about

this life?

What’s all the commotion about the house, land, money

and car? Can we carry it six feet under?

We don’t know what tomorrow holds but

we know who holds tomorrow. What trials

The LORD will send us we do not know, when will

Life rid us of all these miseries? When will our

Saviour hearken unto the voice of our supplication?

Life is a journey sometimes it’s seems like

It’s a rugged road right through. Only boulders

are, being thrown at you and me. My Heart filled with sorrows

wondering when will the end be ? I long for the

day when this wicked world shall pass away and

with my savior I’ll forever stay.

You are such a lovely writer Joanna and your words here written so naturally and effortlessly just simply took my breath away because it's obvious you just have a pure poetic heart and a creative mind to go with it.

Sending to you my most sincere warmest wishes from Colin and his cats Tiffy and Gabriel at lake erie time ontario canada 10:40am with first cup of coffee and some nice oboe music

Would you happen to be a fan of Nina Simone?

Just a hunch.

I think it's a special gift to be able to live on Earth. Some use it well and some not too wisely as they hurt other people.

For me, I try my best to be positive, do my best at what I do, not hurt other people and the time comes to leave this life, I will do my best to be ready.

Hi, baby girl, that was beautiful. I pray we are spared the horrors coming on this earth. Maybe that shout to come home is not far off. ^

Great poem ....when I am away in my motorhome, with even less earthly concerns than my usual daily life entails - Jesus is ever more present, up close. He should be our focus folks....'and tomorrow we may wither like the grass and return to dust'.....what a powerful and true statement that is from scripture! God Bless you Lady Fiddler.

Faith Reaper from southern USA on May 02, 2013:

Me too, I cannot wait for that glorious day when He returns! Profound poem precious heart.

God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
