and in the showing reveal
what owns you.
Oh, be owned
most definitely be owned.
But be owned
by the ultimate sacrifice,
the ultimate present,
the giver of life.
Be the gift
by giving yourself
to the present.
I want to (b) present for Christmas,
I think that would be better than (a).
A person can be so focused on the future
that he forgets about today.
Each morning I open up the present
of a sound mind focused on Jesus.
The gift of our Lord given to save our souls,
the Bible says is guaranteed us.
