The Greatest Gift

The Greatest Gift

 

The shelves within the stores are lined
with gifts galore of every kind;
the droves of people wait to buy
with expectations riding high.
A bustling now has taken wing
to get these 'things' that make one 'sing'...


but give me peace of falling snow
and words to praise the One I know-
in quietness of gentle ear-
in humbleness of presence near,
enveloped in, as meant to be-
the greatest gift - His love for me!

About the Poet
I started writing poetry as the direct result of the first of several spiritual experiences. These experiences also led me to the Bible, Christianity, and Christian Counseling. (I have a certif- icate in Christian Counseling). I have 6 books published...'Divine Light, Living Water', 'A Gathering of Stones', 'Between Two Lakes','Sonnets Through the Window' and 'Violae', an Epic Ballad (Nov. 2013), and now in January 2017, 'Joy Blooms' published by America Star Books. I've won a few awards... the Edgar Award for poetry, and a 1st place in Writer's Journal for the poem 'Amelia.' Most of what I write is in formal verse. I used to think the writing is a gift, and it is that...but more importantly, I've realized I am a vessel for the Lord, foremost. I live in Spring Valley, Illinois with my husband Jim. We have 2 grown children and a beautiful granddaughter, Rayghan, whom we cherish. God bless you all!
