Surprises (A Poem)

by Kelly F. Barr

I love surprises and life is full of them.
Some surprises are good, and some are not.
Some surprises put you on the spot;
Some surprises turn out to be real gems.

My favorite surprises come from God above.
They come in the forms of blessings, tears,
Smiles, open doors, or overcoming fears.
There are more than those, but they all come with love.

Our reactions to these surprises can change a hard one
into a blessing–a real treasure.
Next time a surprise comes your way, embrace it with pleasure,
Then wait for more, for as long as we’re here, God’s not done.
