I got up early one morning
and rushed right into the day;
I had so much to accomplish,
I didn’t have time to pray.
Problems just tumbled about me,
and heavier came each task.
Why doesn’t God help me? I wondered,
He answered, “You didn’t ask.”
I wanted to see joy and beauty,
but the day toiled on, gray and bleak.
I wondered why God didn’t show me,
He said, “But you didn’t seek.”
I tried to come into God’s presence,
I used all my keys at the lock.
God gently and lovingly chided,
“My child, you didn’t knock.”
I woke up early this morning,
and paused before entering the day.
I had so much to accomplish
That I had to take time to pray.

It’s more or less 2 months now that I haven’t been on this online abode of mine. But today, it’s fitting that I try to pause for a while from my everyday work-a-day and reflect on the very essence of this day.
I’ve never considered my self very religious. But growing up and getting education from a school ran by LaSallian Brothers, Faith has been and will always be something important for me. There are times that I do waver and get myself caught up with a lot of worldly things. But I am always reminded that He’s the Love that rescued me.
And that more than the grand decorations, the food in the table, the carols, gift-giving, this is the day Jesus was born. And that’s more than enough for me to be thankful for.
All the voices in the world unify today to bring You a song of praise. Because today, much like everyday, is all about You.Tweet
