He Gave, He Took, But Gave Again.
Yesterday, I told you about Wenn the Pen who was our guest speaker at the over sixties club, last Wednesday, I told you I had bought his book of poems and stories ,I was browsing through the book and rather liked the following poem, which I’d like to share with you …..
God’s greatest gift to mankind is the wonderful gift of life, despite arriving in the world to a smack from the good midwife, to make you take a good deep breath, and fill your lungs with air, before they weigh and wash you, and brush your strands of hair.
God gave us eyes and ears to see and hear, a voice to make a noise, and some are made in different ways, to determine girls from boys, when old enough we go to school, learning to read and count, also we learn of Jesus Christ, and the Sermon on the Mount.
In your teens you find different skills, and one to which you endear, although I loved my carpentry, my desire was to be a motor engineer, thank’s to Gods wonderful gift of skill, I was able to fulfil my dream, by working on petrol powered engines as well as diesel and steam.
There is a well known script of old;’ The Lord Giveth and taketh away,’ myself I suffered from that experience, when at my work one fateful day, I do not blame the Lord above ,for the accident I was to befall ,But I often think that he gave me the skills, but in seconds he took them all.
That happened many years ago, and left me confined to a wheel chair, but I kept my sense of humour and religiously said my daily prayer, But I still believe God’s on my side, for he has given me the will to fight, in fact he given me more than that, he’s given me poetic skills to write,
So the Lord has given and taken away, but I know he’s given again, I can write my verses with a smile, despite being in constant pain, Out of my window I see the blue sky,Isee the birds upon the green trees,these manyare the gifts of God,for his flock he loves to please .
