A Wonderful Blessing

Acts of kindness

I had the most wonderful blessing today.
Shocked and stunned, I didn’t know what to say.

A young woman arrived at my door with a smile.
In her outstretched arms waited a box with a pile.

“An anonymous donor wanted you to have this,” she said.
Tears of gratitude welled and wonderings danced in my head.

“This is a blessing box,” she exclaimed.
“You will find a note inside to explain.”

What a surprise, I thought, as I thanked the young woman we said good-bye.
To the kitchen table I went with the heaped blessing box held with a tie.

My fingers fumbled with the string,
I wondered how to budge the thing.

Feeling like a child and then,
Excitement filled my heart again.

I’m sure this feeling I do not deserve.
Is it more appropriate to be reserve?

I removed the bulging wobbly lid
And peered inside just like a kid.

Ooooo, Ahhhhh, my hands touched many a thing.
How did they know the time to bring?

With bank account dwindled and the fridge bare,
I couldn’t help but sit and stare.

Everything I needed just to get by.
Suddenly fell in my lap right out of the sky.

I’m humbled to hear Spirit say, I knew ya…
With a grateful heart I sing Hallelujah.
