You made the meal and cleaned up the mess-
You count these as accomplishments.
But the greatest gift delivered to God on this day,
Was when you refused discouragement or to anger display.
When the day is over and you lay down to rest,
Know God has noted these as your greatest accomplishments.
Your accomplishments you may not fully know yet,
They are the results of time well spent.
Loving communication, with hands busy at task,
They are the best gifts offered in fact.
Seeds are planted in the garden of love,
By open hospitality you honor God above.
When disappointment is for peace-sake placed aside,
You have displayed an attitude of Christ’s bride.
Every accomplishment is noted by the Lover of your soul.
They are written down; one day to be shown.
You truly have progress made;
When even in discomfort Christ was displayed.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him
