Art of Work || August 26, 2020 || Daily Thought & Prayer
Everyone loves life and joy
They feel it as a girl or boy
But gravity takes hold on face
As adulthood increases pace
Lines of worry soon appear
As horrors reflected in mirror
Relieving sigh relaxed at home
Indulged rewards for work atone
For penance of hard toil and day
When really you preferred to play
Another hard day passed away
While dreaming of your holiday
But what if a new joy was found?
What if work was your playground?
What if each precious second filled
Like future seeds in new soil tilled?
If rapture raised your spirits high
The joy of work would not pass by
Each healthy cell with joy would beat
Each word would be like honey sweet
Each smile spread around the worlds
Each gesture show how power unfolds
Each dark corner would lift and light
Each life shine, each mood be bright
O Lord I worship Thee in every movement and energetic expression. Let your light shine in me that I may share the rapture of your presence with others. May we all learn to work with energy, enthusiasm and joy.
