A PARADOX


In a few days…it will be Thanksgiving day.  This poem from one of my inherited books gives “Thanks” to Jesus Christ for his profound friendship.  Enjoy!-anita

*************************

I did not seek it,

But I’ve found it,

And I want to keep it.

I did not earn it,

I was given it,

And I cherish it.

I did not grasp for it,

But I gained it

And I grow with it.

I did not long for it,

But I learned to know it,

And now I love it.

I did not covet it,

But I’ve claimed it,

And I’ll care for it.

Perhaps, you ask, “Where is it?”

“It’s in our hearts and lives!”

Need you ask, “What is it?”

“It’s friendship,  in Christ!”

Do you wonder, “Why is it?”

“God gave it,

And I treasure it!”
