God’s Gifts

     

God‘s Gifts

God gave us

this beautiful planet.

And He gave us our eyes,

to see.

And He gave us the power

to save it.

Yes, that power

is in you and in me.

He gave us the air

and the water.

He gave us the fruit

on the tree.

And He gave us power to save them,

Yes, that power

is in you and in me.

He gave us the sun

and the blue sky.

He gave us the fish

in the sea.

Yes, He gave us these things,

but duties, they bring.

Now it’s all up to you,

and to me.

    May I make a framable card out of your words? Of course your name will be credited with the work. I want to hang this on a wall in my house where visitors will take notice. It is beautiful. You don’t have to answer me online. We can talk next week.
