What Gifts From Above Are You Thankful For?

What Gifts From Above Are You Thankful For

With Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to share a poem with you called “Gifts From Above”. We’ve all enjoyed Thanksgiving and taken advantage of at least one or two Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals which is great.

However, it’s important to remember that best and most important gifts of all come from above.

What are some of the gifts from above- from God -that you are thankful for?

Here’s a few that I am thankful for:

  • My Salvation
  • God’s love and faithfulness
  • The Holy Spirit
  • His Mercy and grace
  • My husband
  • Family and friends
  • Sunrises and sunsets
  • Ocean
  • Beautiful flowers
  • Delicious food
  • Alex our cat
  • Smiles and hugs
  • Rainbows

It says in the Bible:

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

James 1: 17

Gifts From Above

So many gifts
Are sent from above
His mercy and grace
And Sacrificial love.
Forgiveness and
Joy and laughter
And purpose in living.
The sound of singing birds
And the laughter of a child
Hugs and kisses
From special people.
And a smile from a stranger.
Puppies and kittens at play
And Squirrels scurrying up trees.
The soft gentle breeze
On a hot summer day
Or a roaring fire
In the middle of winter.
So many gifts
Sent from Father God
Endless blessings
And His Never ending Love.

The most important gifts are those that you can’t buy or sell. They are the ones that come from the heart. They are the gifts from above- from God.

So, I ask you again. What are some of the gifts that God has blessed you with? And, how can you be a gift or blessing from God to someone else?
