The Lion in Me

Hello, Sir Lion!
I feared you had gone away.
Welcome to today!

Miss Kitty out here
Threatened to take me over
While you stayed hidden.

I’m glad you appeared
To help me face challenges;
Today’s full of them.

My To-Do List

  • Finish cleaning that darn office
  • Go up in my sanctuary; worship and consult with God
  • Figure out what to put in our suitcases and pack ’em
  • Fix and eat a healthy breakfast
  • Go downtown and buy hostess gifts
  • Confirm our flights and choose our seats
  • Leave a list of helpfuls for the folks who’ll be in our house
  • Visit shut-ins
  • Go to Bell Choir Practice
  • Fix and eat dinner
  • Clean up the kitchen and dust the house
  • Get a good night’s sleep for tomorrow’s long travel day

Take strength and courage
From Mr. Lion in me.
Tackle those To-Do’s!

Have a productive day, my friends.
I’m headed into that darn office.
Can’t have it looking so messy
when our family arrives for Thanksgiving.
Do you have a room like that at your place?

See Ya Later!

  1. Donโ€™t work too hard, ma! Nobody cares except you if there are piles around the place. Good luck getting your last minute tasks accomplished. Have a safe flight tomorrow! I love you!

    • Thanks, De. The office looks as good as it’s gonna get at this point. My suitcase is packed. Now – gotta get your dad to decide what he wants to take!

  2. Happy travels. I loved the poem and the picture was so reflective of that wonderful lion that exists in all of us.

    I wish I could pop on over and help with that office. But I agree with De! Donโ€™t worry about it and donโ€™t work too hard. Rest up for your long trip! Love you ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. My office is part of the entrance hall. I just hope everyone walks past the desk without looking ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Nice post Amen
