And A Meadow Lark Sang

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 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 notice.

And, the man shouted,
"God show me a miracle!"
and a life was born,
but the man did not know.

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.

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