2003-02-20 02:29:14 -- DO YOU HEAR HIM?
The man whispered, "God, speak to me,"
and a meadowlark sang.
But, the man did not hear.
So the man yelled, "God, speak to me,"
and the thunder rolled across the sky.
But, the man did not listen.
The man looked around and said, "God let me see you."
And a star shined brightly.
But the man did not see.
And, the man shouted, "God show me a miracle."
And, a life was born.
But, the man did not notice.
So, the man cried out in despair,
"Touch me God, and let me know you are there."
Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man.
But, the man brushed the butterfly away ... and walked on.
I found this to be a great reminder that God is always around us
in the little and simple things that we take for granted ...
even in our electronic age... so I would like to add one more:
The man cried, "God, I need your help!"
And an e-mail arrived reaching out
with good news and encouragement.
But, the man deleted it and continued crying ...
Don't miss out on a blessing because it isn't packaged the way that you expect.
Expect the unexpected... Have a happy day!
