I looked for a sign that God still cared
That He knew my hurts and fears.
I looked in a church where people shared
In songs and prayer and words.
But lonely eyes were looking back
They seemed as scared as I
And so I knew they too were searching
For release from all their fears.
I watched a little child at play
So trusting and all smiles
I saw a tiny bird carress its wings
Then pause a while
And to look at me before he flew away
I saw an old man and woman sitting, quietly holding hands
Not speaking- but smiling
Remembering a long-ago day.
I saw a rose bud open its tiny face to the sun
Expecting and finding the love for which it had come.
A raindrop touched me softly and as I looked up to see
A beautiful, heavenly rainbow smiled back at me.
God's face is not confined
Not limited to place or time
For I saw His face around me
In His world He refreshes every day.
He still creates and patiently waits
For all of us to see
The face of Jesus
Looking at us so lovingly!
Yes! My soul cried out-
God still loves and cares for me.
The signs are all around me,
I just have to take the time to see.
