Thanks

Thanks for your fresh Spirit
You supply each day
Thanks for guidance
Along the way.
Thanks for birds
And the music they sing,
Thanks for dogs
And the affection they bring.
Thanks for cats, big and small -
I'm amazed at how
You created them all.
Thanks for the sky,
Blue or cloudy,
Thanks for storms
When nature gets rowdy!
Thanks for sex
It feels so good,
Thanks for renewing
A good attitude.
Thanks for friends
In heaven and earth
They're priceless -
That's what they're worth.
Thanks for skill
You gladly endow, ...

Read the full of Thanks

Tug

perpetual tug of war
freedom versus regulation
within me
within the nation

too much of one
the other smothers

liberals lean to freedom
conservatives lean to restriction
each with their own deep conviction

in the body politic
in the body me
a sensible balance
is the happy key
