Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. James 1:17
When it’s your birthday, you get lots of gifts!
Many boxes—long, tall and wide!
It is great fun to unwrap every one!
Just to see what is hiding inside!
Sometimes we like all the gifts we receive–
A new game, candy or clothes–
It could be the jeans we’ve been dying to have!
Or some awesome hair bows!
Not all the gifts are our favorite though.
Not all of them suit us each time!
Sometimes we wish we could take them back
And get what we had in mind.
We don’t have to wait for our birthday
To receive true gifts from above.
Every day we receive “fruity” gifts
Because every day we are loved!
Our Father in Heaven gives gifts every day—
Love, Faith, Peace and great Joy
These fruits in our life are perfect for us
Blessings we can share and enjoy!
Not one of His children is ever left out
Because He is a generous giver!
All His gifts are just what we need
We wouldn’t exchange them—ever!
All His gifts are made perfect for us!
They are always fresh and delicious
He knows and sees us—inside and out.
And He knows just what is nutritious!
As God’s children, we can open these delicious gifts from Him every day!
Can you name some gifts from your Heavenly Father that are inside of you?
Are there gifts He wants you to open that you have not unwrapped yet? (Read Galatians 5:22)
