The Wonder of a Penny

The wonder of a raindrop
Falling from the sky
Splashing in a puddle
Captured in my hand

The wonder of a penny
Shining in the sun
Waiting for a hand
To pick it up with joy

The wonder of a child’s joy
A simple smile or laugh
That shares the treasure found
Infecting all around

The wonder of God’s handwork
Uncounted through the day
The wonder of each person
Planted in our path

The wonder of forgiveness
Given and received
Your wonders in our lives
Lord give us grace to see

Patricia Burlison

This was written during a message given by Nancy Beach at the HIM Honolulu 2010 Conference.
