lasting gifts

not long ago
i was handed a 
sweet little gift...
a hand knit 
nest with four wooden eggs 

along with the gift 
these words:
"i see four major areas 
in life where you have 
been gifted.  take this
nest and these eggs 
and let them remind you 
of the gifts i see...the gifts
you need to never forget." 

i sit today
the gifts
that have come into my life
of late...

this i know
some gifts
are lasting
and are for keeps...

the best of these 
gifts come with love.

i have been so blessed 
to have loved and been loved

if i were never to be loved again...
if i were never to love again...
the love i've already 
been gifted with 
would sustain me
for the rest of my life.

but this i know
GOD is a god 
of surprises and joy
i can celebrate 
that i'm not 
yet done
nor am i finished being loved.
