'Treasured Things' - Poem by Becky LaPrarie

Treasured things for me are not of this world
Or material goods nor money nor fame
My greatest treasure is knowing I am saved
And I can Call upon Jesus’ name

Treasured things are times of being healthy
And being able to see the birds and hear their songs
I treasure knowing that unto my Lord
My soul belongs

I treasure times when things go right with friends
And family and peace is upon us too
I treasure skies that are of purest blue

I treasure friends that never leave me
Who call to say hi or take the time to write
It makes my life and days so very bright

But most of all I treasure you my Lord most high
I thank you Lord for comfort
When life gets difficult and I must cry

I treasure the thought that each night when I lay down
To rest I can lay down in peace knowing

You are taking care of my loved ones too

To tell of all the things I treasure so much
Lord I could never do
But I just want to say once more a “How much
Lord most of all I treasure you”!
