WHEN THERE IS TIME

When there is time...look at the trees.
                           ...listen for the gentle rustling of the leaves.
                           ...notice the green.
                           ...think of the small seed they had once been.


When there is time...look at the birds on the wing.
                           ...watch them as they come north in the Spring.
                           ...catch their fluttering as they awake to the dawn.
                           ...quietly listen to their joyful song.


When there is time...watch for the sun's arisen'.
                           ...be mindful of its glow as it greets the horizon.
                           ...rise to see this glorious sight.
                           ...awaken early to the new day's light.


When there is time...have a drink of water, oh so cool.
                           ...think of how far it had to travel to you from its pool.
                           ...savor its life giving taste.
                           ...drink slowly, making no haste.


When there is time...feel the love that has been given to you.
                           ...tell your family that you love them, too.



Is there enough time...to recognize all of God's handiwork given to us?
Ever the time is now ...to thank Him for all life, so beautiful and precious.

    As I was reading this poem, I remembered a sonnet of Wordsworth..The world is too much with us, We have no time to stand and stare. Excellent write, Daniel
