abundant life

October 21, 2009


What is it I need

To live each day with real joy?

Security: Yes

To know my life has real worth

And I’ve the power to choose


Let’s not forget the basics

Good food and relationships

Love and care demonstrated

Where laughter abounds


This goal can be reached

It will take your best thinking

A desire to live 


When our time begins

We’re born having received love

Nestled in our mother’s womb

Safe, secure and loved

We live needing to be loved

We live needing to give love
