A Check-off List for Today

By Walt Perryman

A check-off list for today
Number one is: Did you pray?

Then would be number two
, Tell your loved ones, “I love you.”

Number three is to do a good deed,
Like help someone that is in need.

Number four is how you spend today,
Honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay.

Tonight, be sure to check off number five,
Thank the Lord for today and being alive.

Be happy and have no sorrow,
And use this same list for tomorrow.
