July's Monthly Dose of Spoken Word

The Simple Things

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."~Hebrews 13:5


Waking up in the morning open my eyes

Twist open the blinds watch the sunrise

Stretch out my legs

Walk downstairs for breakfast, scrambled eggs

Hot cup of coffee

Aroma of my favorite creamer

Sit on the front porch breathe in the fresh air

Gaze at the birds flying in pairs

Droplets of dew on the ground

The silhouette of the moon can still be found

Pluck a blade of grass from the front yard

Enjoying life on Earth really isn't that hard

Look to my hands

I find a grain of sand

Amazing how a single speck

Is so much more than an inadequate fleck

Millions of atoms and cells combined together

Scientist can't seem to understand if they will ever

Truly understand what we "call our world"

The concept has got me all whirled

Up about why we're here

Or what we believe

But as for me

All I care about

Are the simple things

See what you're not seeing

It's the Simple Things
