Each New Day Offers a Gift

Each new day offers a gift,
Something special about the day
To give the heart and soul a lift
And make life better in some way;
If you seek then you will find
That each day's gift will come to mind.
It may be sunshine through a cloud,
A rainbow glimpsed after the rain,
A friendly face in the midst of a crowd,
The sudden easing of a pain;
If you look around with a hopeful view,
The gift in your day will appear to you.

A gift may be in what you see,
Things you touch or what you hear,
The joy in simply being free,
The love of someone very dear;
If you take time to quietly pray,
God will reveal your gift today.

Connie, I love this! Our pastor, who is now 80, always begins each conversation with "One more day -- a special gift!" May we be blessed and thankful for the gift of each day God allots to us.
Love in Christ,

Hi Connie - a heart-felt poem ... I love the sentence:

If you look around with a hopeful view,
The gift in your day will appear to you.

If people would take the hopeful road into their day their lives would be happier and thus easier, and would help others ... lovely to read and think about - thank you - cheers Hilary

Like most blessings, we might miss that gift if we aren't looking.
