Gift of Life

by Ellen Bailey
 

I value the life God has given to me
It is my life and I can live it as I please
My life may not mean much to someone else
And how I live it is up to God and myself

Only God knows how many years I have remaining
But I intend to live them all without complaining
I will treasure each day and rejoice in its pleasures
Practicing His righteousness as a means of measure

I will do my daily chores with a song in my heart
Singing God's praises until the day I depart
And while I am living out my disappearing years
I will be grateful to Him for putting me here
