Gifts From God

A worn and tired church I saw
Love and prayers had been within
The beauty was so apparent
It seemed like life could have no sin

Suddenly I saw my world
So pleasant to my eye
I felt God’s heavenly presence
And I will tell you why

I heard the church bells ringing
And felt Gods touch from up above
For nature is His golden gift
So filled with all His love

As autumn turns the corner
And winter on its way
The leaves are dying in its wake
For nothing can ever stay

Hills and ponds and trees
He gave to us with love
The precious little animals
The robins, blue jays and doves

God gives us gifts we do not see
But it’s apparent everywhere
So smile at all the heavenly sites
And thank God in your daily prayer!

    Beautiful poem Marilyn, it would be a sin not to enjoy these gifts from God!
