Inspired by:

Romans 12:6-8

----- We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a] faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.and I Corinthians 12:7-10


What is the best gift you ever have?
Who gave it to you?
When did you last receive a gift?
What have you done after receiving that gift?

Did you use?
Did you keep?
Did you brag about it?
Did you exercise that gift?
Did you share them?
Did you say thank you to the giver?
Did you do something as an exchange for that gift?

Our Father God is so good 
that everyday He is daily giving us a gift.
Each day we are given a gift--- life...
Walk around and see how the world around breathes
The blue clouds drawing some bear, dog or even a human.
The trees that swing left to right with the wind hum.
The flowers that exhales fragrances tripping on air.
The birds that chirps and the running water soothing lyre...
then stand infront of a mirror and see the best gift you can give.

YOU, yourself is a gift to someone.

Your smile.
Your friendship.
Your time.
Your kind words.
Your simple act of kindness.
Your selfless service.
Your loyalty.
Your understanding.
Your presence.
Your effort: participation.
Your generosity.
Your talent.
Your abilities.
Your forgiveness.
Your encouragement.
Your unfailing love.

Are these not gifts if done with sincerity?

Olive. I love this, and I am in full agreement. This took me a little bit further into the realization of thanking God for the 'gift of me'. If I have nothing else, I always have 'the gift of me'. GBU. Curtis.

Loving happiness in life is a wonderful gift to bestow on someone. Having that someone whom makes you smile daily is gift enough for me, and finding that person has indeed made me smile widely than I've done before. This poem can only leave a smile on the reader, nice one Olive, top marks for this gem, hugs, James xx

Life is a big gift, Olive_eloi, but we receive so many other gifts that it is impossible to name them all; amongst them I give importance to the gift of friendship, especially friends who leave a positive impact on us; you are one of them! hugs // paul

We have so much to offer but sadly we sometimes do not value our offering. Your words inspired my heart -- I always look for when I am on the soup . . . . for your words are filled with light and love. 7

Oh Olive this is such a poignant poem in my life at the moment - the gift that I have had for many many years and is sadly no longer with me is my precious dad. The most wonderful gift I was given only yesterday (the day after my fathers passing) - this gift was the renewal of my premium membership - to that wonderful person I have never had the joy of meeting I give my sincere thanks and I will continue to share their 'gift' with you all here on poetry soup:-) Hugs jan 7 faves xx
