The man whispered, "God, speak to me" and a meadowlark sang.

But, the man did not hear.

So the man yelled, "God, speak to me" and the thunder rolled across the sky.

But, the man did not listen.


The man looked around and said, "God let me see you." And a star shined brightly.

But the man did not see.

And, the man shouted, "God show me a miracle." And, a life was born.

But, the man did not notice.

So, the man cried out in despair, "Touch me God, and let me know you are here."

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

and walked on.

I found this to be a great reminder that God is always around us in the little and simple things that we take for granted … even in our electronic age.

So I would like to add one more:

The man cried, "God, I need your help!" And an e-mail arrived reaching out with good news and encouragement.

But, the man deleted it and continued crying .

Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way that you expect.

My instructions were to send this to people that I wanted God to bless and I picked you. Won’t you please pass this to people you want to be blessed.

Have A Happy Day!

Thank you Shari for passing this along to me!

    He\’s always been there for me, even when I doubted and cursed him. I find that as I\’m getting older I feel his touch all the time. See what getting your AARP card will do to you?Our love to you and Emma
