My Morning Thought


As I woke up this morning
and climbed out of bed,
A thought of the Savior
came into my head.
It gave me a smile
to start off the day
And helped me make choices
as I went on my way.
I cheered up a friend
who’d been lonely and sad.
I took out the garbage,
even though it smelled bad!
At the store, I wanted
some gum to chew.
I had no money,
so what did I do?
I thought of Jesus Christ,
as I had in my bed;
“Thou shalt not steal,”
I knew He had said.
So instead I went home,
feeling light as a breeze,
For I knew I did right
and that He would be pleased.
