A Psalm of Today

By Joseph Bayly

This is the day
the Lord has made.
The Lord?
Yesterday perhaps
could claim Your craft
or hopefully tomorrow
but not today
this disappointing day so filled
with problems
despair and doubt.
This is the day
the Lord has made
and making it
He'll give the strength

and hope
to take me through.
This is the day
the Lord has made
so I'll be glad
and I'll be glad
and I'll rejoice in it.

I read this poem for the first time when I was about seventeen. There are days in which it is difficult at best to be thankful,  yet, being thankful even when situations and relationships turn sour brings a sweetness to our spirit and hopefully can be spread to others. ~Judith~

If you have gone a little way ahead, O friend, call back --
Twill cheer my heart and help my feet along the stony track.
