The Breath of Life

My soul is DNA from God,
Who breathed life into me.
I cannot see nor touch it,
But I know that it is there.
Its the essence of my being,
My immortality
Enclosed in mortal body that I wear.

Each day I must cherish my soul
With thanks to God above,
For sharing of Himself with me
That I might live forever.
As my soul is nourished with
Good deeds and selfless love,
It's certain proof that God exists
And will forsake me never.

What a refreshing piece!  As the dulldrums of wintery days dampen our spirits, your account lifts them in sunshine.

God bless,

God will have great plains for a poet like you
In the afterlife for Heaven needs good poets too.

Lovely Joyce...I am not a 'doom and gloom' appreciator so this was a most pleasant read this morning

Hope you are doing well

I came in to peak at what is new and found my poem up near the top again.  Sorry I have been neglecting this corner lately.  I'll be back.  Love, Joyce

Joyce,

I loved your title as it is a wonderful wonderful reminder of where our life has come. Amen. And, yes, I believe that you've shared your soul very very well here.

Good job and God bless,

-Bob

Amen! It's soooooo true that we have God's DNA in us from His very breath; perhaps if people could receive that very insight, mankind would be more civil to one another. --Joe

Logic, when applied to people, fails miserably! --Joseph J. Breunig 3rd

Someone says, God will have great plains for a poet like you - and he means well - but I will say this: God will have great plans for the soul of a poet like you. well done, Joyce!!

Dear Lady of Verse,
This poem is wonderful- my soul is DNA from God, DEAR-NEAR-&-AWESOME treasure which he has given each of us.  I love how you have expressed it so eloquently in this poem!

Well Done!

I thank the LORD everyday
He has given me something to say
And to share with others,
My Friends, my sisters, my brothers!

To God Be the Glory!
