This Wondrous World

There is no sun in the sky

Like the sun which shines down on this land

There is no moon at night

Than the moon which beams upon us

There is no sun or moon

That shine as bright

As those which you’ve provided for us

Oh, Lord

There are no stars

That twinkle at night

Than the marvelous ones that provide a light show

Just as you created them Lord

There are no trees or flowers

Which look so beautiful

Which are so colorful

Than the ones which you gave us Lord

There could never be any brighter colors

Which paint our days and nights

Bring joy to our eyes

Than the colors you’ve provided Lord

There could never be more majestic mountains

More fantastic oceans and seas

More mighty rivers and streams

Than those created by you Lord

There could never be larger, sparkling lakes

Nor creatures more amazing big and small

There could never be more natural wonders

Than those which you’ve given us oh, Lord

And each day my heart wants to sing in praise

If I could I’d paint a picture as a tribute to what I see

But it could never do justice to what actually is before me

And so I say thank you Lord

There are many man-made wonders in this world

And as grand, large and majestic as they are

I’d rather wander in the places

Where I can be one with what You’ve created

I know in this world there are many mysteries

Which we’re not meant to know

But oh, Lord when I can feel close to those who’ve left me

I realize how very compassionate You are

My life still goes on but I’m not alone

I have many special guardian angels to guide me

And when my world turns upside down

I know I don’t have to frown

For at the moments that bring tears

And I begin to wonder how to go on

Then Lord you give me Your hand

And guide me the rest of the way

And on a gray day like today

I know that somewhere the sun is shining

And that it will find its way to me

And that things as they should shall be

So accept the love I have for you

There is not much more that I can give you

I count each and every one of my blessings

And know how mighty you are Lord

God is amazing

He chooses every baby's DNA and blood type

He puts every star in place to float in the sky

He creates every fingerprint with a rare design

He makes an egg to burst open with life.

God is great

He selects all the love-songs for every bird to sing

He makes broken bones mend

He gives every flower its specific perfume

He cares for seeds and they turn to fruit.

God is awesome

He tells the seasons when to change

He gives us air so we can breathe

He feeds multitudes of living organisms on our planet

He waters fields of green carpets with morning dew.

Every leaf is a marvel of God's genius

Every baby is filled with God's love

There is nothing in this world more precious

than the beautiful kindness of God.

What beautiful words of praise Gypsy! Even when our skies are gray we can know that sunshine is on its way...what else could get us through and what atheists do not understand about our God. We know He is always there for us.

Really a beautiful poem of devotion and love or beauty. I used to tell my students, "It's a sunshine beautiful sky day, regardless of the weather. If you were in a jet traveling above the clouds, you'd see the beauty of the blue sky. So, get your head above the muck and enjoy the day." Sometimes, we just fail to see what we've got. Great Job!

Hi Gypsy!

The greatest evidence of love is the demonstration of God's presence in the lives of people who offer themselves as it's expression!

thank you for making yourself available for this blessing!

May peace always be with you!

Glad you enjoyed this rcrumple. I like the way you put it to get your head above the muck. It's so true we just have to take a good look around and realize the beauty that surrounds us.

Glad you enjoyed this Frank. The weather here changes almost every day and between the autumn sunshine, the cloud shows and the snow that fell it all inspires for sure.

Me thinks that I'm glad you enjoyed this Leslie. I do believe my faith is part of my inspiration. Glad you liked the pics. Some of them like the church spire are my own. Thanks for the share.

Good morning

What a lovely way to pay tribute to our Lord for the wonders He gives us each day. There is in truth no thing on this earth that is man made that can compare to His creations. Right before us each day we have opportunities to enjoy the wonders of nature. My baby grandson reminds me of this daily as he will hear a bird, and, stop and acknowledge it; or a tree, or a flower. He admires them and talks to me about them each time he spies one.

Yes, we are blessed and can offer nothing but our love to offer Him. And as you point out He is there for us in every very blessed we are. Voted up
