Life is Good

Hidden within this body
are the unseen signs of life
oft ignored but there indeed.

A gift of God
this body complex
from beating heart
to air-filled lungs
to life-giving blood.

Life is good says the prophetic professor.
Life is good -- a gift of God
to be used, respected, cared for and honored.

Be open to the signs of God moving within.
Be open to changes.
Be aware of the signs of life.
Tend to the needs of health.
Rest in the loving care of God.

Remain ever with me, O God,
for in you am I safe,
for in your will I live.

Herman Kauffman, January 2006
