I think the best gift of all is the gift of life. Having my own children has blessed our lives. Having grandchildren doubles the blessings. As we watch each child choose a mate, and then decide to have children themselves puts joy in my heart.
This March our youngest daughter gave birth to a sweet baby boy. I had the pleasure to be at their home for one month – 2 weeks leading up to the birth (baby decided to not enter on the date predicted) and 2 weeks after baby boy’s arrival. Such sweetness, little mouth, soft skin and cuddles.
God’s gift to us – life. Do we take our lives for granted? Do we enjoy each minute? Do we listen to God as He speaks into our hearts?
How do we thank Him? Do you thank Him for everything – for being with you through hard time and good times?
I loved reading Ann Voskamp’s book, One Thousand Gifts as it has led me on a journey to seek the gifts of God. They are all around. We only have to LOOK, HEAR, TASTE, SMELL, and TOUCH.
My five minutes are up. What do you think of when you hear the word – GIFT?
If you want to join The Gypsy Mama in her Five Minute Fridays read below.
Here are the rules:
Around here we write for five minutes flat on Fridays.
We write because we love words and the relief it is to just write them without worrying if they’re just right or not. So we take five minutes on Friday and write like we used to run when we were kids.
On Fridays we write like we believe we can fly. Won’t you join us? (<—Tweet this!)
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Please visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments.
Thank you – yes I believe babies are wonderful gifts from God.
Life is such a precious gift, and I think babies are God’s best reminder to us of that. What a little sweetie he is!
