Richly to Enjoy

Be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches,
 but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. 
1 Timothy 6:17

Afternoon light glows on the table
Inside my kitchen
Where the fruitbowl waits to offer
Apples with names like Gala,
Jonagold and Pink Lady – Oranges 
That grew on trees beside the ocean and
Miniature mandarin oranges 
Were harvested, I think, by children's tiny soft hands
Across the world somewhere
Where soft warm wind blows.
What a sweet offering.
