"Lord, forgive me when I whine!!!"

Today, upon a bus, I saw a lovely girl with golden hair,
I envied her....she seemed so beautiful....and wished I were so fair.
When suddenly she rose to leave, I saw her hobble down the aisle.
She had one leg and wore a crutch; but as she passed....a smile!

Oh God, forgive me when I whine,
I have two legs. The world is mine!

I stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold it had such charm.
I talked with him. He seemed so glad. If I were late, it'd do no harm.
And as I left, he said to me, "I thank you. You have been so kind.
It's nice to talk with folks like you. You see," he said, "I'm blind."

Oh God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two eyes. The world is mine.

Later while walking down the street, I saw a child with eyes of blue.
He stood and watched the others play. I stopped a moment,
When I said, "Why don't you join the others, Dear?"
He looked ahead without a word, and then I knew he could not hear.

Oh God, forgive me when I whine.
I have two ears, the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I'd go, with eyes to see the sunset's glow,
with ears to hear what I would know....

Oh God forgive me when I whine.
I am blessed indeed. The world is mine!


Note from James:
Everyone of us have and/or will face times of things just don't go our
way...but keep in mind...there are others in worse situations....
and they don't whine!!!


May God Bless You Beyond Your Wildest Imagination!!
