    It was he who woke me up
    Early…this morning
    Who caused the beating of my heart

    He gave me the winds
    And allowed me to breathe
    Deeply
    Of the air
    Of His goodness

    He gave me
    Comprehension and reason
    The ability to understand
    That I might better serve Him
    …love Him

    As I lay to rest
    This body
    That houses the gifts
    Of my Father’s
    Blessings,
    I give thanks
    And beg forgiveness
    For not giving 100% of my time
    In worship to He who gives
    All
    But all that I give
    I give for the edification of
    JEHOVAH.

    As the rivers
    Of blood waters
    Dance
    The dance of life
    Along the shores and valleys
    Of humble souls,
    I am constantly reminded
    Of simple gifts
    More precious than gold
    Or jewels
    Or material possessions
    Or stored up treasures

    Gifts…
    Such as the air I breathe
    Sunshine and rain
    These things I need
    The moon and stars
    To light the night
    And
    So many other
    Extreme delights.

    Baller, Sending thanx to you for this beautiful spiritual reminder. So grateful to taste of the fruits of His son's labor..Offered to all who chooses to sit before his table, and there around. I sit humbled.

    Can it be any clearer?

    And all he asks in return is love.

    Thank YOU.
