The weekend is almost here.
I have plans that are not quite clear.
Chores around the home to do
That get put off during the week.

Spending time just doing nothing
Sounds really good to me.
Having friends for dinner and games
Would be a nice change.

To have the children home
And now the granddaughter, too
Just spending time with family
Would be my first choice.

Prepare for worship for Sunday
As we come together for church
Spend some precious hours
With our Christian family too.

I should never live my life
Waiting for the weekend.
There are seven days in a week
To be savored, cherished, and lived.

Let's not live our lives waiting for Friday. God gives us each day to come up with the things you want to do. Now do them!

A poet - I am not! Blessings to all! :)

If it doesn't rhyme it's called free verse -- the most common type of recent poetry.

Thats good Strawberry !! I like not doing anything over the weekends but my husband packs our schedule so tight even a tick cant get it! This week I will have to drag the tooth charade a bit longer !
I have to say this All the people I have met from Texas have been such sweet people.The women are very well put together and have a sweet spirit and the men are so kind and nice.Is it in the water ?

Pan - Yep - I do know that but it didn't quite turn out the way I thought it would!

Frasy - It's in the water, in the air, in the dust and in the blood! :)

Thank you for such a sweet compliment!

Angel - I don't think lazy is on tap for this weekend but when we head to Colorado that will certainly be the case!!! :)

Thank you, sweet daughter! As you can tell - I really do not have a poet gene to my name!:)

Loved following the link to your daughter's site and seeing her precious daughter!!! And sweet things she wrote about you.

Strawberry said...

Motherpie - both are precious to us!

So hard to live mindfully. In acting we call it moment to moment, and when we can do that it's the best performance you can give.

And great job on the poem!! :-)

Incognito - Thank you. Moment to moment - that's the way to live!
