Feet to the floor,
first grumble slipping down my tongue,
missing a perfect opportunity,
for His glories to be sung.

Pass the sun, body aches,
slipping back into my murk,
not relaizing how i stifle
denying that God is already at work.

I look around, begin to grumble,
surveying work to be done in this place.
Breath by breath, complaint by complaint,
choosing to forfeit His daily grace.

I sit down, my eyes settle on,
that haunting 3:42.
Icy water in my face,
I know what I need to do.

Start over, put on the new.
that time doesn't have to be fateful.
I have health, time, a second chance,
transforming GRRRRRRR.......ATEFUL.

I am currently living in Milford, NH with my husband John, and our three children, Caroline, Maggie and Jacob. I am currently a fourth grade teacher. We have recently moved back to New England, and I thank God every day for the blessing of being close to my family.
