Every Day is Special

Each day of every year
Is unique in exceptional way,
Let us pause to be thankful
And hear what the little things say.

The littlest flower, the tiniest bug,
Designed for living, engineered to cope;
Atoms and particles created,
Not coincidence, and more than hope!

Small details quietly come together;
It takes a thoughtful eye to see,
that God who does large wonders
Also does microscopically.

The gleaming, twinkling stars above
Drawing our eyes to the sky,
Fill our hearts with wonder
The night we hear a baby’s cry.

God became man upon earth,
Jesus fulfilling God’s plan,
Showing amazing love for
The restless human clan.

We remember with gratitude
Thanksgiving, Christmas, all
Reasons for celebration
Who respond to our Lord’s call.
