Six beautiful things I know
A nice array of flowers, the moon in its majestic fullness,
The fresh breath of a new day, the graceful occasion of being proposed to,
College graduation and the joy of your first-born.
These five are irresistible happiness
Falling in love, the thrill of fulfilment,
Helping an elder citizen, achieving a set goal,
And meeting a good old friend; catching up with the “old times.”
Merriment includes these four
The company of good friends, a familiar song
Slipping the wedding ring into your fingers and
Reminiscing childhood memories and fantasies.
The best of entertainment are enumerated as thus;
Watching a good movie, relaxing with a good book,
And listening to the laughter of children.
There is no encouragement and comfort
Like that derived from reading the Holy Scriptures,
And hearing the testimonies of those who have gone ahead.
This one tops it all … There’s nowhere like the presence of God.
