IF ONLY YOU WOULD LISTEN (Meggie's love challenge)

You can hear it if you listen
Through the echo of the wind
As it sweeps across the meadow
Cooling the earth

You can feel it in the warmth
As the sun smiles through the clouds
Heating the soil
Breathing new life

You can see it in the miracle
Of the new born child
Through the beauty of the flowers
As they bloom in Spring

You can hear it through the laughter
As children play in snow
That glistens like diamonds
Painting the earth

The magic of the moon
And the stars that shine so bright
God’s love is all around us
You can hear it….
If you would only listen

So give thanks to our creator
Thank him with this prayer

“I love Thee, I love but Thee,
With a love that will not die
Till the sun grows cold and
The stars grow old”

He will smile and he will answer
If only you will listen

  • This is obviously deeply felt, and beautifully expressed in a rhythmical but free way. The exhortation to listen, whether to God or nature or the earth, is as true now as it ever was, and perhaps now more necessary than in earlier times.23 Apr 2012 by
