                                          I woke up this morning and got out of bed
                                          I said thank you Lord as I got out of bed

                                          Thank you so much for this brand, new day
                                          I know it wasn't promised but you sent it anyway

                                          Thank you for the sun shining oh so bright
                                           and for watching over me all through the night

                                          Thank you for my health, it means so much more
                                          Each day that I am well I'm more grateful than before

                                          Thank you for my family whom I love so dear
                                          And the love we share is a blessing forever near

                                          Thank you for my life and joyful, endless days
                                          For that I'll cherish and give you all the praise

                                          Thank you for your love and patience without end
                                          I'm so honored to call you my heavenly father and friend

                                          But most of all thank you for salvation when I was lost
                                          And the ultimate sacrifice your son on the cross

Hope all is well with ya'll. I've been so busy lately I've neglected my Blog and feel like I've neglected ya'll but maybe the canning season will wind down soon, hopefully. Been busy putting my new book together and I'm really getting excited about it. Many thanks for all the comments and visits on mine and I will get back to you eventually. How is your summer going? 


  1. Wonderful poem and prayer Susie! Well said!
    Hope you have the most beautiful day!
    And may the good Lord send all blessings your way!!

    1. Thank you so much. Hope you have a nice day as well and blessings to you my friend.

  2. I love it. It so reminds me of my own prayer each morning and my thanksgiving for the gift of another day. xoxox

  3. Very nice poem, Susie. Blessings to you!

  4. Susie, I only have one word to describe this poem......Perfect.


  5. I feel the same way - so thankful for all God's blessings. Truly, He is good!

  6. We all have so much to be grateful for! Lovely poem, Susie! :-)

  7. Susie, I love your poems so much. I want to get one of your books. Will you let us know where we can buy one. Hope you are enjoying summer ...even if you are doing the pioneer thing..canning.:):)xoxo,Susie

    1. Thank you Susie. I sure will when it comes out. I would be honored for you to have one. Hopefully soon.

  8. A book, how awesome!!! Yeah for you. My summer is great, as you know I am at our river place to head south and celebrate Liam's birthday...excited about that.

    PS I really like your identifying photo (I have no idea what you actually call that) but I love the perspective! Pretty hair:)

    1. I hope you have an enjoyable time with that sweet grandson. Happy Birthday to him and thank you.

  9. Our summer is going well Susie. Nice and cool...very comfy.

    Another good poem, and the message is one of gratitude...not taking for granted all that we are given.

    With gratitude comes contentment...not the other way around, I believe.

    Blessings and love~ Lisa

    1. Thank you Lisa and I agree. Glad your summer is going well and you are getting some cool weather. Blessings to you.
