loving life

the letter l

i grab my journal,
pen in hand-
turn to a crisp,
fresh, white page.
i write with only one purpose,
to get some ideas down
on that blank page.

i write one and two word prompts,
for the alphabet.

the letter l;
what words come?
life. love. laughter.

it seems a natural thing
jotting down in the journal,
that life is good!

because it is.
even though
sometimes i may
lose focus
and forget about
or take for granted
how sweet life is-
or how much i
have to be thankful for.

i want to treasure each and
every day.
to laugh often. to love much.
and never for one single minute
forget how sweet life really is.

Three great words for L. Life, life more abundantly in Christ; the gift of love can never fully described nor appreciated, and laughter is such a wonderful gift! Great post!
