I was so sleepy when I opened my eyes
But something within beckoned me to rise
And as my feet touched upon the floor
Suddenly I wasn’t tired anymore
I longed these yawning hours to fill
For it wouldn’t be very long until
My head touched this pillow once again
Will I have lived this day in vain?
I gaze in awe at the eastern skies
Glowing in the compassion of a new sun-rise
Here is a gift shining from above
Humbly I lift to Him a heart of love
For He’s seen my sad accomplishments few
But still He gives me a dawn brand new
Will I strive with all that is within me
To be the best in Him I can be?
An hour then two and so a life quickly passes
What will I leave on this earth’s tender grasses?
Will there be anything good and kind
Seen in the footprints that I leave behind?
Surely my greatest sorrow in life
As I bear my lot of trouble and strife
Ah, surely my greatest sorrow would
If at the end of my life I saw nothing, but me

Ephesians 2: 1-10........Don't these words offer us true purpose in EVERY day??!!!!
As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our sinful nature[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature objects of wrath. 4But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 6And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 7in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast. 10For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
