Good Day?

Sat down in a restaurant and the bartender asked,
“Did you have a good day?”

I said yes, but then wondered
about what makes a day good?

I know bad days are often made of
“too much to do and no time to do it…”

I know rough days are made of mistakes, mostly mine,
and of so many things that don’t go right…

I know it’s a bad day
when helpless, discouraged and sad’s how I feel…

But what makes a good day, Lord?
What makes a day good?

A good day’s one that starts with the prayer
that no matter what happens you’ll be by my side…

A good day’s a day I take as it comes
without fretting all day ’bout tomorrow…

A good day’s a day when I take time to listen
and look for the ways that you’ve got my back…

A good day’s a day when I’m sure in my heart
that it’s you who’s in charge – and not me…

A good day’s a day when I wait for your Spirit
to lead me beyond my own planning and scheming…

A good day’s a day that ends with a prayer
to remember and thank you for being my God…

It’s a new day, Lord, a brand new day
and I hope and I pray it’s a good one…
