The most precious things in life
Are actually not things at all,
But rather created from the touch of God
And particularly when our name He calls.
It’s the precious infallible word of God
That enriches and enlightens our soul,
As the words that are divinely inspired
Much peace and love unfold.
We’re enriched when we give with kind gentle ways
That puts a smile on someone’s heart;
It’s to pray God’s will upon their life
With many blessings to impart.
It’s our loved ones who enrich our lives
With their gracious and honest ways,
When with wisdom, correction and understanding
Bring peace to our every day.
It’s our household pets that bring us joy
With their sweet unconditional love,
And their sensitivity towards our feelings
They’re a treasure from above.
It’s the flowers amidst our gardens
That furnish our backyards;
It’s the precious scent of a rose
That excels in beauty by far.
It’s the music that’s inside our soul
And the song within our heart;
It’s the melody that enriches us
That is truly a work of art.
It’s the intangible ability
To paint a picture with accuracy;
It’s to create a brilliant masterpiece
Where the eyes of our heart can see.
It’s the gifts that God ordains
When we’re called to do His will;
It’s the talents combined with obedience
With rich blessings our soul it fills.
Much materialism gives us a temporary fix
With a comfort that pleases the eye,
But the stress to maintain and to upkeep
Can sometimes kiss our peace goodbye.
It’s the miracles that do enrich
Our lives in so many ways,
When the author of life, God the Father
Showers His blessings on us each day.
