God gave us three great gifts: Life, love and Free-will. The main challenge is to make the right choices in how we use these gifts in our life.


We all want the same thing:
A sense of joy and peace.
God gave us three great gifts
To receive this joy and peace:
Life, love and free-will.
All the problems in life
Come about by not knowing
What we really want,
Or what God wants from us;
From there we just get confused.
In the end we finally understand;
These wants are really the same:
To receive joy and peace
By wise use
Of our three great gifts:
Life, love and free will;
Enjoying life,
Loving freely,
And making good choices.
There are no rules,
Only lessons;
And the main lesson
Is to grow
In compassion,
And reconciliation;
Of what we want
And what God wants.
We canít do this
Through our minds,
Only our hearts.
