Thanks Giving

The ways of a foolish man are disappointing…
he it is who enjoys a lavish life and says- ‘I
am a self-made man -          
no one             
knows the            
struggles I went through to get where I am.’ He forgets that            
God gave him his intelligence and            
instead boasts of his             
various abilities and accomplishments.          
In contradiction, a wise man knows his wisdom is from above -            
nothing or no one can hinder him in his quest and stop him from           
giving thanks, because he knows that without HIM, he is NOTHING.

    It's so hard for people to accept that we are all small pieces of a big big puzzle. Once you do that and stop trying to explain everything life gets so much easier. Thanks for your poem. Warm thoughts, Ralph

    I fully agree Vicky. What can we mere mortals truly take credit for. All are gifts that have been lavished upon us by a generous and loving God. Still we find it so hard to give thanks. We believe the illusion of our own greatness.
