Think of all those little things –
The things He didn’t have to make.
Each was crafted in its own exclusive mold:
Tiny caterpillars with stippled skin,
Golden freckles on a child’s cheek,
Delicate fossil, pearl or stone;
The elusive facets of a flower,
Or the varied tint of a thousand different eyes.
God didn’t have to create these slight details,
But He did.
He laid down each faultless touch for our pleasure;
And placed each little element of beauty to His world –
Hoping we’ll pause an instant in this busy life
To notice them.
