Value




What a value is life upon this earth,

its total meaning, and all its worth.

To search this globe, no greater treasure,

is this life, and without any measure.





All the diamonds, rubies, and gold,

its meaning more, in sums, untold,

Each precious breath of life to hold,

no finer gift, as we leave our mold.





If we search the land and oceans, wide,

No such scale, in truth may abide.

Beyond the stars, in heavens, vast,

Its essence of such love, was cast.





Our Creator's riches, to us, endowed,

in the dawning sun, as to lift the shroud.

A beautiful sky, and the blues of the sea,

Bestowed to us, in our lives, so free.





What greater care, and to show loving grace,

In this life to belong, in just having our place?

While in His arms, receiving our fondest embrace,

We may accept the joy, in His endearing face.

      This made me think about how some people are just not fond of being blessed. We have to be willing to accept God's blessings with open arms instead of being skeptical of them. Thanks for provoking a little though this morning!

      ...deep, soulful, profound and such lovely and pure words.

      Many people really don't appreciate what they have until it's gone - isn't that a line from a Joni Mitchell song? Big Yellow Taxi? or something like that? lol

      Thanks Bill, we have been each given a wonderful gift and it is up to us, in what we do with it. Do we share and help others, or do we waste it and in greed, covet it? IT is up to each of us.
