Have You Ever Wondered?

Have you ever wondered why God gives so much? We could exist on far less. He could have left the world flat and grey; we wouldn't have known the difference. But he didn't. He splashed orange in the sunrise and cast the sky in blue. And if you love to see geese as they gather, chances are you'll see that too. Did he have to make the squirrel's tail furry? Was he obliged to make the birds sing? And the funny way that chickens scurry or the majesty of thunder when it rings? Why give a flower fragrance? Why give food its taste? Could it be he loves to see that look upon your face?

When I first read this, Tammy, I thought, "Oh, how beautiful!"

Then I read it again and realized it was a poem. Just had to share it.

beautiful stuff.

I want to sit down with him one day and ask so many questions like what was he thinking when he made a Tapir, or a Zebra. I love the world and am grateful for the "Big Guy".
