We’re surrounded by gifts —
Priceless gifts of love and splendor
Gifts with no expiration dates

I stepped outside today
and connected with multiple gifts —
Trees, birds, clouds, rain and snow

I danced in their presence
A dance of joy, freedom and gratitude —
Thankfulness manifested in fluid motions
in sync with the movements of love
It was a happy dance
despite what appears
with aims to distract —
We press through with
awareness that we dwell
in the habitation of God

Our Lord provides
bountiful and abundant gifts —
Days and nights
we’re presented with more gifts —
How precious and treasured
that LOVE is the best gift of all.
