“Ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds of the air, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish of the sea inform you. Which of these does not know that the hand of the Lord has done this? In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.” ~ Job 12:7-10


Look at the birds,

What do you see?

Do you appreciate a dance

Orchestrated by Me?


Listen closely to the sea,

What do you hear?

Do you sense My symphony

Splashing ever clear?


Breathe deep in the garden,

What do you smell?

Do you taste Heaven

More than words tell?


Embrace the sunshine,

What do you feel?

Do you experience love

Ever perfect, ever real?


Yes, look and listen closely,

Breathe, feel and taste,

Let no precious moment

Ever go to waste.


For all around you,

In each and every thing,

Are wondrous windows

To my endless blessing.


I love you immeasurably,

So My gifts abound;

Open your eyes to miracles

Unfolding all around.


Listen closely to the sea,

Be still to hear

My sweet eternal symphony

Splashing ever clear.


And as the birds dance,

Delight in what you see,

For these gifts, My child,

Open your eyes to Me.
