The Gift Of Life

Rating: 5.0

Waking up every morning
That is a gift
The air we breathe
That is a gift
That we are able to walk
That is a gift
That we are able to see and hear
That is a gift
The gift of life.

It is not a given that we wake
up every morning
Many go to sleep and never wake up
It is not a given that we breathe
Some are using oxygen machines
It is not a given that we walk on two feet
Some are on wheel chairs
All these are gifts
All these are by God's grace.

Let all treasure the gift of life
Let none take it for granted
We know not what tomorrow holds
We know not what the future holds
Let's honour those we love
Let's show them that love
They may not wake up tomorrow
We may not wake up tomorrow
The gift of life is taken away at anytime
The gift of life is withdrawn at anytime.

Life is the most precious gift one can dream of. Life should be lived sharing love and peace and giving smile to all. We should take advantage of the present as the next moment is uncertain. Very nice. Enjoyed.Deserves 10+++
