Finding God

I find God in the simple things

Not exotic cars or diamond rings

I hear Him when a cat calls her kittens

In the clicking of knitters making mittens

In the Irish lilt of women working in the church

And the frantic twitter of baby robins in their perch

In the photos of your grandson with Mickey Mouse

In the sound of loved ones’ laughter in your house

In the smile of your wife’s face, on each new day

The sound of happy children while at play

The peal of a church bell, calling us to Mass

The soft glow of sunlight through colored glass

I find God in what I hear and what I see

I can only pray that God finds - me!!!
