Look For The Good

Janice Hudspeth,  May 2000


Isn't it interesting to note
That what we are looking for
Is usually what we find,
And very little more?

It is all too easy to find the faults
In everyday situations,
And then they seem to magnify
In our imaginations.

Can we not look for good instead
And focus on the best?
It certainly makes for a better day
And gives our minds a rest.

When we live with aggravations
And let them rule each thought,
It is then we lose perspective
And progress comes to naught.

So what if brother so-and-so
Or sister tell-it-all
Intrudes our day with useless junk
And dumps on us their gall?

It may sound too simplistic
To always look for good.
Yet what is there for us to lose,
Besides our own bad mood?
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24

Thank you my friends for your nice comments.  And Sonja, yes you may use the poem, I would be glad for you to use it.  
I have to keep reminding myself to practice what I preach!  
Thanks again.
This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.   Ps 118:24
