God's gifts are many

Guide me on my path Oh Lord for you know the way when I do not. You are the light in the darkness, the hope of the world, the compassionate Father who always listens and holds us tenderly in His love.

You accept us for what we are and what you created us to be. You know all our secrets but never reject us. When we ask, you supply all that we need, when we need it. You are available at any time and it is never too late or too early to call on you.

You teach us what the really important things in life are and how to be at peace in an unsettled world. You teach us it is more important to count our blessings than our sorrows.

You create beauty wherever we look and created the most glorious rainbows as well as breathtaking sunsets, valleys of wildflowers, canyons of color that cannot be fully captured on film.

I think your greatest beauty is reflected in the face of a child and in butterfly wings. You gave us voice and songs that we may speak with you as well as glorify you, and words such as Hallelujah.

You give is wisdom when we seek it and abilities that we can share with others. You give us time to slow down and enjoy life all we have to do is realize our true priorities.

At times you give us miracles, some large and some small, and the gift of appreciation. You give us the joy of friendship and of partnership and the knowledge that we are never alone for you are always with us.

You give us Angels  to watch over us, to teach us, and to guide us. And yes, sometimes even to save us. You give us a soul that we may seek the spiritual, a heart that we may learn to share.

You give us both laughter and tears to express ourselves emotionally. You give us life, may we realize it as the blessing it is. You give us gifts that we may serve you.

Each day is a gift waiting to be opened and appreciated. You give us the ability of awareness that we can see beyond ourselves and our limitations. Through you all things are possible. You awaken us.
