Choose

Oh, my soul!

in spite of the loneliness
that is striking 
choose to be thankful

in spite of the cruelty
that is annoying
choose to embrace patience

in spite of the anxiety
that is bothering, 
choose to stay calm

in spite of the disgrace
that is hurting 
choose to give a smile

in spite of the grievance
that is wounding 
choose to move on

in spite of the criticism
that is crushing, 
choose to rejoice

in the ocean of His Love
