The Journey Of Life


The journey of life is just a path.
On earth to lead our way,
A place to stop and rest awaile,
For we were never meant to stay.

The journey of life is a stepping stone,
On this path to greater things,
Life is not an empty dream,
If we rejoice in all it brings.

Each step we take will bring us closer,
When our journey in life will end,
And time for some is fleeting,
Time for others will extend.

Though the journey is not easy,
Loved one's will take our hand,
To guide us in life's journey,
With their footprints in the sand.

Our journey on earth to Heaven,
Will be measured by our deeds,
By how we have treated others,
And cared for others needs.

The journey is different for many,
But the destination is the same,
For eternity will await us all,
When God calls out our name.

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
