I love the unfolding of the seasons
It is like opening a bag filled with presents.
There is always so much to be thankful for,
Each day is blessings-full, heaven sent.
I asked Jane, my sweet little angel,
what she is most grateful for.
She said in all honesty, “I thank God for me.
I could not ask for more.”
Life indeed is the most precious gift,
The joys and the happiness of living.
Even if sadness may sometimes come,
Just to be alive is reason for thanksgiving.
It is a great thing to be alive and kicking.
But the joys in life is not only the receiving.
If we just look around us with a loving heart.
The true joys in life really comes from the giving.
Jane loves her toys and loves receiving more.
But it is her gift of life, she is truly thankful for.
And when it was time to say goodnight,
For Uncle Mickey and Julia, she gave gifts galore.
Jonathan sometimes live in a world of fantasy,
With his video games and favorite movies.
He watched them last night, snuggled close
Warming up an Uncle going through some difficulties.
There is a time for receiving, a time for giving.
Thank you for the gifts, thank you for the living.
Thank you for the hugs and kisses I receive.
May I be just as warm and caring when I give.
Here God lives among his people.
Jesus told his disciples a parable.
“Consider the fig tree and all the other trees.
When their buds burst open,
you see for yourselves and know that summer is now near;
in the same way, when you see these things happening,
know that the Kingdom of God is near.
Amen, I say to you, this generation will not pass away
until all these things have taken place.
Heaven and earth will pass away,
but my words will not pass away.”
