A Thankful Heart By Bernard Levine

In the heart of every baby

you’ll find the beautiful love of God

In the sparkle of every shining star

is the brilliance of God’s genius

In every drop of precious water

is the immeasurable kindness of God

When you touch the texture of a leaf

you feel the gentleness of God

It’s a wonderful privilege

to love God and say thank you

There’s a very special feeling you get inside

when you care for and look after God’s creation

It’s so rich and so meaningful

to be living each day to please God

Giving God gratitude

brings more miracles

into your life.

© Bernard Levine


God gives you His angels to protect you

God gives you His love to please you

God gives you His Spirit to help you

God gives you His Word to guide you

God gives you His Son to save you

God gives you His miracle of life

God's love is so amazing!

What a lovely poem of praise and thanks to the Lord! It's a powerful way to awaken each day (regardless of circumstances) saying, "Thank you, Lord. I love you, Lord..." then "This is the day the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it!" So much weight is lifted, as we turn to the source of our strength with thankful heart.

What reminds me daily of His love, of His tender touch?  Flowers. I guess I got that through my mother, but it was from my Father! Fragrant and lovely, at once delicate, simple, and complex, flowers rise in beauty through the storms, above the thorns, to shower love, beauty and hope upon us!  But then, you see this, too. Many thanks for your heartfelt comments on my new Mothers Day Flowers hub. You are a friend and a blessing!

It is true for me as a church worker. I see God's hand in the hands of others who get inside me and touch my needy heart. Thanks for the beautiful poem. It lightens my heart and strengthnens my faith that God has people who can see such in me.
