Poems




I looked upon the face of God



I looked upon the face of God

And tried to see the truth

Then the beauty filled my eyes

My questions became sooth

The words soon filled my mind

They were all writ in gold

The wisdom was there to be found

The love there to hold

I looked upon the face of God

When I beheld the world

The flowers or joy of a child

Showed His beauty unfurled

I looked upon the face of God

He was in the setting sun

The joy of knowing right

And of a job well done

Godís Crayon box


Walking through the woods

Bright carpet on the ground

The canopy above

In color does abound

A crisp Autumn breeze

Stirs the air around me

Swirling colors of the leaves

Now they surround me

God brought out his crayon box

To color the world today

Gave them to the angels

And set them out to play.

I searched for God



I searched throughout the universe

To see if I could find God

But where I finally found Him

Was really not quite that odd

I thought if I looked hard enough

I would find Him among the stars

Where I finally found Him

Was nearer me than far

On the day I found Him

I looked down at my feet

And found Him in a flower

Growing by a busy street

I thought I might find Him

If I looked in outer space

But instead I found Him

In a young childís face

I thought I could find Him

If I looked up in the skies

But instead I found Him

In the faithful personís eyes

I found Him there beside me

When I was in need

He was in a strangerís hands

When they did me a good deed

I could not find Him

Inside of manís great books

But in a simple personís heart

Was where I had to look.
