Heart Gifts

Quit Supposin'

Don't start your day by supposin'
that trouble is just ahead,
It's better to stop supposin'
and start with a prayer instead,
And make it a prayer of Thanksgiving
for the wonderful things God has wrought
Like the beautiful sunrise and sunset,
"God's Gifts" that are free
and not bought-
For what is the use of supposin'
the dire things that could happen to you
And worrying about some misfortune
that seldom if every comes true-
But instead of just idle supposin'
step forward to meet each new day
Secure in the knowledge God's near you
to lead you each step of the way-
For supposin' that worst things will happen
only helps to make them come true
And you darken the bright, happy moments
that the dear Lord has given to you-
So if you desire to be happy
and get rid of the "misery of dread"
Just give up "Supposin" the worst things"
and look for the "the best things" instead.
