PostSubject: I RECEIVED YOUR SMILE TODAY   Sat Mar 09, 2013 7:43 pm

Dear God I received your smile today
each way I looked it shined my way

In the sparkling drops of dew upon the lane
in the glorious trees of ash with leaves of flame

Your smile is in the emerald spears of grass
buzzing insects in the leaves of sassafras

I looked to the mountaintops peaked with snow
Saw the rising suns gentle golden glow
Felt mist of water as the breeze began to blow
In the majestic floral colors rich and deep
brilliant as your smile enough to make me weep

Dear God I received your smile today
each way I looked it shined my way

In the eyes of a calf as he licks my hand
refusing to move, looks at me and stands

Passing the barn I catch a splinter rubbing a small spot of rain

It reminds me of how Jesus took for us our sin and pain

I looked for you among this muddy path
Watching birds in their morning bath
Raising their wings in love and praise
for the water and the suns warm rays

My resentment, anger and hurt pride have gone
Basking in this new day and a covenant bond
For this morning I saw my God smile at me
and with that my soul flew free Jesus Loves Me Jesus Loves Me

"Dear God I received your smile today
each way I looked it shined my way"


this line grabbed me and transported me into the radiance of His smile in so many places, on so many faces, in the day to day...
Ever have one of those days where people just smile at ya', even people who are normally tacit or grumpy?

It's that simple sometimes...
like the first two lines of your poem, speaking volumes!

I agree with oneagleswings, this one really fills the heart with joy. The first two lines captured me, and the rest brought me on a journey hand and hand with the Lord:

Dear God I received your smile today
each way I looked it shined my way
