(Thanks to DB who asked if I'd had a good day)
Sat down in a restaurant and the bartender asked,
"Did you have a good day?"
I said yes, but then wondered
about what makes a day good?
I know bad days are often made of
"too much to do and no time to do it..."
I know rough days are made of mistakes, mostly mine,
and of so many things that don't go right...
I know it's a bad day
when helpless, discouraged and sad's how I feel...
But what makes a good day, Lord?
What makes a day good?
A good day's one that starts with the prayer
that no matter what happens you'll be by my side...
A good day's a day I take as it comes
without fretting all day 'bout tomorrow...
A good day's a day when I take time to listen
and look for the ways that you've got my back...
A good day's a day when I'm sure in my heart
that it's you who's in charge - and not me...
A good day's a day when I wait for your Spirit
to lead me beyond my own planning and scheming...
A good day's a day that ends with a prayer
to remember and thank you for being my God...
It's a new day, Lord, a brand new day
and I hope and I pray it's a good one...
