Seeing God....

Photos by Gary Strader

Seeing God

How can anyone not see God
in the beauty spread all around,
from the azure sky and mountain high,
to flowers covering the ground,
as everywhere that you may look,
evidence of God’s splendor is found?

How can anyone not see God
in a beautiful butterfly’s wing,
the leaves in fall, vibrant colors on all,
in new life returning in spring,
as everywhere you see displayed
the Creator’s touch on everything?

How can anyone not see God
in a tiny newborn’s eyes,
in the evidence of a parent’s love,
soothing the baby’s cries,
as everywhere after night is done,
another day glows with a new sunrise?

How can anyone not see God
in uniqueness of each face,
from young to old, from gentle to bold,
of every color and race,
as everywhere evidence is seen
of God’s mercy, love and grace?

I absolutely love this poem. I had no idea it came from a book. I guess I just assumed that you wrote it. Your blog is always so inspiring.

Truthfully, being appreciative of the beauty around us, it is really hard to be blind. God's creation is magnificent and it made me wonder of all His works. They are beyond description and the answers to the questions I asked Him as anyone does can be found right everywhere I look around.

Beautiful piece to share Kim. Now, am on track where you are.
