I am amazed that
I own the stars --
I own the blue of the sky --
I own the vast blue water
Spread across this earthen ball --
I own the colors in the bouquet --
I own the smell of rain
As it sprinkles across the soil --
I own the laughter of a baby --
I own the joy grasped by the heart
When the greeting card is read --
I own the smell of my little girl's hair
After her bath in the eve --
I own the swelling of laughter
In my soul with
The truth told in humorous tone --
I own the shine of the moon --
I own the sparkle of the stars --
I own the funniest story
I have ever heard --
I own the words in my favorite book --
I own the health granted to me
Moment to moment by God --
I own the blessing of knowing that one day
I will have a birthday with the light of the stars
As the candles on my cake
There to see my Mom and Dad
And share eternity
With my Heavenly Father
And
Angels
I have never met who were here
In this world with me
Before I knew their names --
And
I always remember
That I am heir only to that
Which
My Holy Father
Decides He will give to me --
And in that knowledge I glory in the fact
That My Father
Truly does unconditionally
Love me...

Isn't it great to be a member of the family of God and be heirs to His estate!

I see God's smile, like a cradle, and you resting in it. :) And that's gonna be one BIG cake! love it!

Juanita, I really enjoyed reading your poem. I'm not a big poetry fan. I get hung up on rhythm and rhyme - but though you didn't choose to include all that, I didn't even notice. You caught me up in the truth of your words. We are so blessed and we need to recognize God's blessings in our lives and appreciate each moment - own them! Great job.

This was very well written! What you wrote just blows me away because I know it is truth! Thank you. :)
