Tag Archives: my unworthiness




‘Twas a challenge to wake up today,

All my funny dreams went away…

With insulin gone

One must labor on,

No matter what doctors may say.

Checked the bank and blog early morning,

The rent came in–enough warning…

Blessings shared

From saints made aware

Have kept us from financial mourning.

Still waiting on vacation pay

(And be careful of what I say)…

Learning to trust

Before the car dies of rust,

Is what I so poorly display!

My troubles with our HR,

Largely my fault so far…

Or so it seems

I have been deemed

Not worthy of their time–that’s par.

At the pharmacy I nearly lost it,

At the total my medicine cost…

‘Til they discovered

An error that hovered,

In the computer that’ll not be fostered.

No leftovers in the kitchen,

But for delivery I’m itching…

But all the menus

Are gone (boo-hoos!),

I’m not totally lost (just a smidgen!).

But God has been good this week,

I’ve found blessings as I seek…

To follow His way

And practice each day,

Keeping closer eyes on my harsh “beak”.

I’m so thankful Jesus loved Peter,

And his buddies who spoke the same meter…

My mouth corrupts

Too often erupts,

Saying the wrong things–a defeater.

My angered frustration controlled

Or not, has my outlook told…

In God’s mercy

My wife has not hurt me

When my mouth needs some soap enrolled.

As for other failings, they are there,

Most are known by close friends who care…

They give me church hugs,

Although like David I’m a slug

But it’s always God’s mercy we share!
