MY NEW SHOES ~ A Praise Poem – Part 6
In Praise of Praise

Who says God is dead?
How can that be?
God is Life for all to see
Yeah, God is Life in all people,
All creatures – all things.
God is Life!

Not a judging being out there or up there.
I touch my chest and feel my heart beating
I give thanks and praise my Life
I praise my parents from whom I sprang
I praise my parents for providing me with necessary things.
God is Life!

I give thanks and praise my Life
For all my ups and downs.
I praise my adversities and all the
Pearls of wisdom I have gained.
I praise my God for giving me Life.
God is Life!

I praise the sadness I have felt
For how else could I know the meaning of joy?
I praise the disappointments I have had,
They really weren't so bad
For how else could I understand the accomplishments I have done?
God is Life!

I praise my eyes that I see the blue of the sky,
the sun shining down on me.
I praise the rain
I praise the night
Filled with stars, planets and UFO's
God is Life!

I praise my body – fat or thin.
When I praise all pains dissipate
Into a blessed peace.
I praise my laughter and that of others
It lightens my spirit and dissolves my load of cares.
God is Life!

I laugh with glee when the essence in me
Kicks my butt
To move me out of my rut
Telling me Change, Change, Change!
Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!

Each morn when I awaken
I praise the God I Am
I give thanks for this beautiful day
I give thanks for my Life.
Praise God! Praise God! Praise God!

"As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives." Henry David Thoreau
