When You See A Sunset

When You See a Sunset

When you see a sunset,
Do you say to yourself,
It’s too bright?;
There’s not enough color?
Probably not!
You just accept it
And maybe thank God for the sunset.

When you walk through a forest,
Do you say to yourself.
These trees are too tall?
There are too many leaves?
They are the wrong shade of green?
Probably not!
You just accept it
And maybe thank God for the forest.

You are one of God’s Children.
You are greater than any sunset
Any forest.
Why do you beat yourself up
Instead of knowing how wonderful you are?

    That was number three of God’s affirmation of His Love for me, and how he sees me. He knows my hard-head, and he always answers me in threes. Thank you for being his instrument of peace!
