HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED

Submitted By: hayseed

WHY GOD DID NOT GIVE US ALL THE ANSWERS
TO THE MANY QUESTIONS WE SO OFTEN ASK,
HE DID NOT EXPLAIN THE WONDERS OF THE EARTH
OR HOW LONG HE PLANNED FOR IT TO LAST.

THERE ARE MANY QUESTIONS THAT NEVER GET ANSWERED
LIKE DO BUMBLE BEES CLOSE THEIR EYES AT NIGHT,
WHY DO SOME ANIMALS ONLY SEE IN DARKNESS
AND OTHERS WALK AROUND IN THE DAY LIGHT.

HOW A TINY ANT CAN CARRY A LOAD TWICE HIS SIZE
OFTEN A LONG DISTANCE OVER ROCK AND HILL,
HOW A MOTHER BIRD WORKS FROM SUNUP TO SUNDOWN
BUT YET THE BABIES NEVER SEEM TO GET THEIR FILL.

A CLOUD SAILS THROUGH THE SKY
YET IT NEVER FALLS AND GOES ON ITS WAY,
A BABY TAKES THE FIRST STEPS EVEN IN FEAR
THEN SUDDENLY OFF IT GOES WALKING EVERY DAY.

WHERE DID GOD GET HIS WONDERFUL PAINTBRUSH
THE BEAUTIFUL COLORS HE USES IS JUST A DELIGHT,
A FIERY RED SUNRISE ARRIVES AT JUST ABOUT DAWN
A BRILLIANT SUNSET WARMS THE SKIES AT NIGHT.

HOW A BABY PRAYING MANTIS CAN FIND SOMETHING TO EAT
THEY CAN'T FLY - JUST JUMP AND HOP,
HAVE YOU EVER WATCHED GEESE FLYING SOUTH ?
THEY KNOW THE ROUTE TO TRAVEL AND NEVER STOP.

HOW EACH BIRD KNOWS HIS SELECTED MATE
THEY NEVER SEEM TO GET IT WRONG,
HOW A CRICKET CAN GO ON AND ON EVERY NIGHT
NEVER TAKES A BREAK OR REST FOR VERY LONG.

HOW A SPIDER CAN WEAVE HIS OWN LADDER
A BIRD HAS THE ABILITY TO BUILD A NEST,
A BEE KNOWS WHICH FLOWERS HAS THE BEST HONEY
A HUMMINGBIRD LIKES RED AND LEAVES ALL THE REST.

HOW A PEACH HAS FUZZ AND AN APPLE DOES NOT
SOME FRUIT HAS A GREAT BIG SEED,
OTHERS HAS SMALL AND YET GROWS TO BE VERY TALL
SOME MAKE GOOD PLANTS AND OTHERS ARE JUST A WEED.

GOD MADE EVERYTHING HERE ON EARTH
EVERYTHING WAS CREATED WITH DELICATE CARE,
HE PROVIDES US WITH ALL OUR DAILY NEEDS
THE ANSWERS HE MAY HAVE DECIDED NEVER TO SHARE.

I HAVE READ AND STUDIED MY BIBLE
WHEN LIFE IS OVER AND WE PASS AWAY,
THE BIBLE TELLS ME THAT ALTHOUGH IT IS LOVELY HERE
WHEN WE REACH HEAVEN WE WILL WANT TO STAY.

NO MORE WORRYING AND NO MORE WONDERING
NO MORE PAIN AND NO MORE QUESTIONS TO ASK,
WE WILL BE IN HEAVEN AND IT IS WONDERFUL THERE
WE WILL BE WITH GOD AND REST COMES AT LAST.

I love nature and all it has to offer. I live in the
country and I enjoy every day and see and learn so much
from watching all that surrounds me.
