I sit and am amazed,
How wondrous God must be!
To create such a masterpiece,
And then share it with me!
I close my eyes in the sunlight,
Let it bathe my face in love,
What an amazing Father,
Who watches from above.
Birds sing of His majesty,
Butterflies show His care.
Flowers tease my senses,.
God has written His love everywhere.
And I wonder who can be so blind
To simply look and not see
God's fingerprint in a turtle
And His signature on a tree.

Sometimes God says no,
And we must smile through tears.
We must carry on,
And let go of our fears.
No matter what the reason.
We must accept His will.
God is a loving Father,
This too is loving still.
Sometimes what God sends,
Falls down upon us like rain,
But hidden there is joy,
Amid the thundering pain.
Sometimes what we receive
Makes no sense to our human eyes.
But we must listen with our heart
And not listen to selfish lies.
Sometimes a no is yes,
In ways we do not understand.
So Lord I accept your answer,
And cling to Your hand.
