Care Everywhere

Care Everywhere

by: Shirley Satterfield

Care Everywhere 🌳 🌳 🌳

Father, I thank you for the abundance of this day,
The endless blue sky above me,
The many green trees that surround me.
The two tender red buds on my rose bush,
The countless blades of grass in the yard.
Can you count the blades of grass under your toes?
Lord, I know that abundance is everywhere that is reached by your care
Which is really here and over there.
