Blessing Hearts

I will order cedar hearts that will have "Be a Blessing" carved on it. and they will be sold to benefit needy children. I wrote this little "ditty" below as kind of a country song with a "inspirational" theme hopefully.

Be A Blessing
Now I am confessing
Most of my life I haven't been a blessing.

Given the Lord's Free Will.
I have found I have a choice -
Curse or rejoice.

I choose - I can lose or
If I refrain from being a curse,
I can gain.

Every morning I decide
Go against the tide
Or joyously ride.

Sometimes it feels like
Its not in my hands.
That's true, so I surrender
And remember, "This is the day
The Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in It."

And that's every day.
I can choose to be a blessing

Sometimes its confusing and it's irony
By surrendering, I can be free.

I must remember its my choice
To curse or rejoice.

I will keep on confessing and
Deciding to be a blessing
