About the Poem

This poem I wrote outside of my church. I was having a very rough week due to personal problems, however found enlightenment through a grandchild who hugged me and told me she loved me, a very old woman who smiled at me as she shook my hand in church, and my best friend and roommate who has been an inspiration to a lot of my poems.

As I was looking for encouraging words for my daughter's graduation book, words that would erase shadows of doubt for our amazing God, I was touched by your perspective and blessed by your poem. Thank you! I will share it with her!

I Found God Today

I found God today through the eyes of a child
He looked up at me and he gave me a smile
He brought me such comfort for which I have longed
Through the eyes of a child I realized I belonged

I found God today in an old woman's face
As she held my hands, I felt God's embrace
From problems in life I knew I would prevail
Which I felt through her hands so old and so frail

I found God today in the warmth of a friend
Who has given me strength for which I can depend
When life had me down and I felt so depressed
I realized through my friend just how much I was blessed

I found God today when I searched for so long
And it's now I realize, he's been there all along
In family and friends and in all who I see
Each day I find God and now I've found him in me

so true. at times we seldom realize that God lives in all of us if we let him. I PRAY THAT WE ALL LIVE GODLIKE LIVES SO THAT OTHERS WOULD SEE JESUS IN US AND THROUGH OUR LIFESTYLES FIND HIM IN THEM TOO.

This is truly touching. I know that God lives in all of us, and I feel Him in me every day. But, as this poem states, I also see Him in the eyes, smiles, and touches of others who are not afraid to allow Him to shine through them. Your poem is lovely, touching, and a beautiful tribute to our Lord. I truly enjoyed reading. Hugs, Patricia

I love this poem. The first time I saw it was on the Poetry Sharings Forum, and after that I have found it in many different sites. Sometimes I read it just because it's so wonderful, but other times I go and look for it when I'm feeling down and sad. Reading it always helps. Thanks for writing something so great as this - it has meant and will always mean a lot to me!
