Gifts From Above

I made a list and I checked it twice
It contains what I love and it’s very precise
The things I’m thankful for are both big and small
And knowing God tops them all
He gives me good things to enjoy while I’m here
So I wrote down a few that to me are dear
Everyone’s list is a little bit different
Making everyone special is just plain brilliant
So celebrate what’s important to you
And give thanks to the One who makes it come true

Everything that I love
Is a gift from above

Having my family all together
And also time alone
Piecing together a complicated puzzle
And a good piece of chocolate to call my own
An ice cold glass of unsweetened tea
Even if the South doesn’t agree
A fire roaring in the fireplace
And don’t forget about a great hair day
Plunking a tune on a grand piano
Spending an hour watching Columbo
Time with friends sharing laughter and tears
Going to church with my husband year after year
A high quality item for a good deal
And an awesome pair of new high heels

Everything that I love
Is a gift from above

Baking delicious homemade cookies
And also planning for the holiday
Writing something especially inspiring
And all generations gathered for a birthday
The luxury of heated seats in the car
Making memories even if they’re bizarre
Dreaming of a mid century house
With a Sputnik chandelier, but not a mouse
Clapping to the beat of a great gospel song
And a well crafted lyric to sing along
A huge array of colored pencils
To make up my Bible or color a jungle
Capturing the season with my camera in hand
Enjoying the beauty of this great land

This is my list and I checked it twice
It contains what I love and it’s very precise
The things I’m thankful for are both big and small
And knowing God tops them all
He gives me good things to enjoy while I’m here
So I wrote down a few that to me are dear
Everyone’s list is a little bit different
Making everyone special is just plain brilliant
So celebrate what’s important to you
And give thanks to the One who makes it come true
