“The Blessing”

“The Blessing”
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 notice.
 
And the man shouted, “God, show me a miracle!”
And a life was born.
But the man did not know.
 
 
So, the man cried out in despair, “Touch
me God, and let me know You are here!”
Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.
 
 
Don’t miss out on the blessing because it isn’t
packaged the way that you expect.
