Each Day a Choice 

This is a day,
like any other day,
a day that beckons to us
in different ways,
but each day a choice:
Thou or Me,
my way, Lord,
or let me come to Thee.

Each day a renewal
of choice before me,
sometimes I lose
and say Me, not Thee.
Forgive me Lord,
when I stumble and fall,
for each day I acknowledge
that I hear your call.

My life is like grass
curing white in the sun,
a spark and it fires,
burns fast and is gone,
And when I am ash
and forgotten by all,
May I rest in your heart
having answered your call.

Susan E. Stone, 2006
