I can READ!
What a glorious wonder indeed!
This complex task we take for granted,
it's a gift from God that He, Himself planted.

We look and we read,
and it is our souls we feed.
From the words so sad,
to the beauty that makes us glad.
The choice given to achieve
our highest potential or just leave.

This is the connection we make with another,
when one uses a pen or typewriter.
How silly we are to take advatage of this,
just imagine how much we would miss.
If He had not given us the seed of this bliss.

Thanks again Denise. I think too often we
take the little things (which are really big) for granted.

Excellent of you to point this out, Julie. Sometimes we spend so much time thinking about what we want that we don't take the time to be thankful for what we have. Nice job.

Thank you both, Balladeer and Pepper. If
I didn't have this little blessing I would
miss out on all of your wonderful messages.
