I imagine that every day I am given a little velvet pouch, with a drawstring that will close it up tight, and into this pouch I will put all the treasures I find as I go through the day.
I find pebbles of hope, and little glowing bits of love, scattered here and there all over the ground, and I scoop them up and tuck them inside, and joy fills my heart at what I've found.
I discover laughter hiding here, and delight just over there, and soon my pouch is filled to the top, there is so much more I want to fit in...for the treasures of love never stop.
At the end of the day, I have so much to bring, a full pouch of love's treasures to share.... and I know that when I go looking again, there will be so many more lying there.
I bring my pouch to you, and give you my gifts, and I'm filled with such wonder as I see...that in your hands is a matching velvet pouch full of gifts you've picked up just for me.
And I realize again that this is what love is, the value grows as you give it away, but it always comes back and brings you even more.... a treasure that can't be bought, can't be fit into the words that you say.
I thank God every day for giving me this pouch and for the eyes of love that can see.... the true value of the gifts that I bring to you, and the gift of love you share with me.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
