Ordinary Miracles (Poem)

Author’s Note: This was originally written in 2012 before I was married and has been moved here from a personal blog I no longer use.

Open the windows of your soul
Let me show you what makes me whole
Indoors or outdoors, it’s everywhere you see
Miracles as ordinary as can be

Take a glimpse of the leaves from trees
There are patterns your eyes can seize
See also the flowers in deep slumber
Their petals have a definite number

An infant in Mummy’s tummy
A foreign object it should be
Yet her body does not reject
Instead it nurtures and protects

The scary spider has beauty concealed
It’s quite obvious in every web she builds
She spins and weaves in an intricate way
With tough threads of silk that won’t ever fray

Every wound your body tries to seal
Your blood quickly clots then starts to heal
The immune system is your defender
Against any danger that might enter

A different world thrives underwater
Breath-taking sights you’d only wonder
The deepest point still teeming with life
All in order; no chaos or strife

Now who dare say with confidence
These are all mere coincidence?
Everywhere you look you’ll find evidence
None can deny Jehovah’s presence

I give all praise to Jehovah’s name
Without His works, life won’t be the same
To some, these may just be ordinary
To me, it’s as miraculous as can be!
