The man whispered, "God, speak to me."
And a meadowlark sang.
But the man did not hear.

So the man yelled "God, speak to me!"
And the thunder & lightning rolled
across the sky.
But the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said,
"God, let me see you."

And a star shined brightly.
But the man did not see.
And, the man shouted,
"God, show me a miracle."
And a life was born.
But the man did not notice.

So, the man cried out in despair,
"Touch me, God,
and let me know you are here."

Whereupon, God reached down
and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly
away and walked on.

This is a great reminder
that God is always around us
in the little and simple things
that we take for granted...
even in our electronic age.

The man cried "God, I need your help"
...and an e-mail arrived reaching out
with good news and encouragement.
But the man deleted it and continued
~Author Unknown~
