Sometimes we overlook the simplest of things
God laid before our eyes
Like the beauty we see in all His birds
Or the majesty of the skies.
It’s the small things that surround us
That we never seem to see
Or the things that are big that we overlook
Like the tallness of a tree.
There’s a peaceful sound that calms our hearts
And it comes with falling rain
Then it speeds up as it falls real hard
As to almost cause us pain.
There’s something special we have when we’re young
And it’s there when we get real old
We have the ability to feel when it’s hot
Or to feel when it gets too cold.
These are things we never think about
But, sometimes I think we should
If we’ll take the time to stop what we’re doing
I know we surely would.
There’s a comfort we get when we realize
God is around us every day
It’s an awesome feeling to know our Lord
Is never far away.
