The Greatest Gift

God

So loved

Everyone

Yes, everyone

In the whole world

That He gave us a gift

The most precious gift He could

He gave us all His Only Son

Who died to save us all from our sins

And bring us all into eternal life

Etheree

These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. 1 John 5:13

Opportunity

 OpportunityOpportunity won’t wait

As the hand of time extends

Act and don’t procrastinate 

Opportunity won’t wait

Grab it before it’s too late 

Seek before the chance ends

Opportunity won’t wait

As the hand of time extends

In 2011 I was offered the opportunity to attend College part time. I was in my elder years and had never had the chance previously to attend college. Seeing this as a once in a lifetime opportunity for me , I took the chance and enrolled as a part-time student in Web Design. It has been a challenge and a long road but yesterday I graduated with Honors! I am very happy to have had the opportunity to do this!

Today’s Gift

Clematis, life
Life!

Each day

Gives us 

Twenty four hours

That we may freely use.

Each day we get to choose

How we will spend our minutes.

Do we take time to think 

Upon this or just let life pass?

How will you use today’s gift of life?

Blessing of a Gift

Oft’ a gift blesses

Not only the recipient

But also the giver

Senryu

And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’  Acts 20:35 

Last night I was blessed to be given a wonderful surprise gift by my youngest grand-daughter. Her generous heart brought me so much joy!

Yet, she said the giving brought her much joy also.  She’s such a sweetheart!
