The Blessings

The man whispered :  “God speak to me”

and a bird sang, but the man did not hear

Rufus-naped lark - such a sweet song

So the man yelled :  “God speak to me”

and the thunder rolled across the sky, but the man did not listen

A stormy afternoon - Savute Botswana

The man looked around and said “God let me see you”

And a star shone brightly, but the man did not notice

Orion's Belt - Matseleng Pan Botswana

And the man shouted :  “God show me a miracle”

And a life was born, but the man did not know

Spotted hyena - Kruger National Park

So the man cried out in despair : “Touch me God and let me know you are there”

Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.  But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

A gentle touch

Don’t miss out on God’s blessings just because they aren’t packaged the way you expect them to be.
