Heart to Heart 453 The Gift You Are

The Gift You Are

It has been clear to me for most of my life, that the giver gets the greater gift!  I think most of us love to receive gifts for ourselves.  It is a joy to be gifted by someone else, particularly when it is a surprise.  However, it is sooooo much fun to give to others and see their excited eyes, their whoops of joy and tears, of being honored with a gift.

There is another John Denver song that I adore!  It is titled”The Gift You Are”  Here are the beautiful lyrics:

Image a month of Sundays, each one a cloudy day.
Imagine the moment the sun came shining through.                                                                                                                                                                                      Imagine that ray of sunshine as you.

Remember your darkest hour with dawn still far away.
Remember the way that you longed for morning’s light.
And think of yourself as a candle in the night.

Make believe this is the first day, everything all brand new.
Make believe that the sun is your own lucky star,                                                                                                                                                                                                    and then understand the kind of gift you are.

The gift you are, like the very first breath of spring.
The gift you are, all the joy that love can bring,
The gift you are, all of our dreams come true.                                                                                                                                                                                                          The gift you are, the gift of you.

You are the promise of all the ages, you are the Prodigal Son,
You are the vision of prophets and sages, you are the only one.

Dream of a bright tomorrow, know that your dream will come true.
Carry your dream in a sparkling crystal jar,                                                                                                                                                                                                                  then you will know the kind of gift you are.

The gift you are, like the very first breath of spring.
The gift you are, all the joy that love can bring,
The gift you are, all of our dreams come true.                                                                                                                                                                                                           The gift you are, the gift of you.

The Universe is a giant brightly wrapped colorful gift box with all of us in it!  It is a huge Hallmark Christmas movie with all of us hanging from the evergreen branches, waiting to be opened! Please remember that you are the one unique gift that is not the same as any other.  Your spirit, your heart and your soul is the gift you bring to life each incarnation.  We can relax and know that we are here to make someone’s moment, day, week, year, perhaps lifetime.  And it may be that we are our gift to ourselves as well.  You are a priceless treasure.  May you always feel that way!  From my priceless heart to yours, Thomas
