Gifts that make my life worth living,
gifts that make my moments holy.
Not gifts that I wish for
but gifts that I have received.
Gifts that bring me back
into Joy and Gratitude.
sunshine filtering through the pines
taking an unfamiliar road, then winding over a hill to be surprised by an absolutely breathtaking view!
red flowers spilling over their basket
a cat nursing her kittens
coffee with hazelnut creamer
wriggling my toes down into the sand
two old men with a fiddle and an accordion making everyone’s toes tap on the street corner
God’s constantly-changing brush splashing out a beautiful sunset
sailboats on the lake
long conversations over lunch
the giggling of young girls
dark curls ringing a round four-year-old face with laughing, mischievous eyes
Thank you for another beautiful week, Lord!
