Each day when we awake, With the coming of daylight; May our eyes open to the beauty, Unwrapping the gift of life. A gift given to us from God, A special gift given to no other; Its contents yet unknown, Like any gift one to another. We may never understand its value, Or whether to say thank-you or why; But we do know where it comes from, And that it is one of a kind. This is our gift for today, Very different than tomorrows; It may bring peace, it may bring joys, Or hardships, challenges, or sorrows. Dear Lord, help me to open this gift, With child like anticipation; Even playing with the box, When accepting the contents with trepidation. Please give me strength to cherish each day, Your generosity is beyond comprehension; For if I open my eyes to see what's there, The brightness is blinding, the darkness a lesson. Yes, life's a gift, To me from You; To share with those around me, Just as You did too. by: Karen Wells
