Life is a gift

autumn

Life is God’s gift to us.
Have you seen the wonders around you?
A smile or laughter, hugs and kisses.
My heart beat; the gift of life.

Can one only survive on food alone?
Yes. But then the wonder of life is lost.
Inhale the smell; Savour the taste.
Let each meal be a feast, however simple.

Don’t look back with regret.
Yesterday is gone forever.
Enjoy living life today.
And look forward to tomorrow’s gift.

Each little wonder, a miracle.
The cat curled on my lap.
As I stroke its fur lightly.
I hear its purring of content.

Yesterday belongs to death.
Embrace today with living.
Don’t look back with regret.
Life is a gift, give thanks.
