The gifts of God are in the green of our gardens,
the triumph of the mountains reaching
for the skies,
reflection in our awestruck eyes,
a thousand candle lights, dancing
in a night sky,
while roaring seas
rest upon their soft yellow bed.
The gifts of God are in a delicious afternoon tea,
a warm steaming beverage,
the mesmerizing smells
of chocolate sweets
as a blanket of bread
spreads out fresh
from the oven.
The gifts of God are found in our hearts,
every kiss, every warm embrace,
every sparkle of kindness,
every costly sacrifice
says the words “I love you”.
The gifts of God we breathe in deep,
the sun smiling,
the wind greeting our faces,
sounds of dancing,
echoes of laughter announcing
we are still alive.
Then come times of great tribulations,
tossing us off
life’s comfy sofa,
lurking at every corner,
urging us to give up
Yet when we feel lost in misery,
from daily struggles
the tears flooding,
on our knees begging,
we should remember,
that from life’s grueling tests,
we learn invaluable lessons that are also
the gifts of God.
