Grace upon grace. God gives lavishly, elaborately, beyond measure.
The gift of a new day and strength to get up, get moving, and go forward.
The gift of comfort; clothes to stave off the chill; warm oatmeal with butter and sugar.
The gift of music, blending with other musicians in rhythm and harmony.
The gift of caring evidenced by smiles and hellos, a quick “How are you?” and a hug.
The gift of God’s Word, my familiar leather-bound book clutched in my hand.
The gift of coming home to leftover chili and fresh-baked flatbread.
The gift of snow falling outside the window, sprinkling our little woods in white.
The gift of communication in sundry modes, texts, emails, blog posts, phone calls, easily connecting me to the world.
The gift of rest, a sacred Sabbath to refresh and recharge.
The gift of Christ, offered to me, His life for mine.
Grace upon grace. Blessing upon blessing. Beyond counting.
