YOU GIVE US GIFTS, LORD

You Give Us Gifts, Lord


Lord,
You give us
Gifts.
_

Sometimes,
Beautifully wrapped.
_

Sometimes,
They just appear.
_

Sometimes
Wished for.
Sometimes
Unexpected.
_

Sometimes
Painful,
Sometimes
Dreadful.

_

Sometimes
Challenging,
Sometimes
Disturbing.

_

Sometimes
Pointing us anew.
Sometimes
Leading us nowhere.

_

Sometimes
Filled to the brim
With loss
With tears
With misunderstanding,
Perhaps even
Hopelessness.

_


Sometimes
Filled to the brim
With music
With laughter
With arms around us
Tightly.
_


A little scary to say
Out loud,
Lord.
But yes,
All gifts
Just the same.

    A fictional account of what may happened in Dallas on November 22, 1963. Sometimes truth and fiction work well together and perhaps give us a better glimpse into reality than the so-called facts.
