PoinsettiasWe have been joyfully tithing from our gross income for over 35+ years. We began even before my husband became a Christian (with his permission).

The Greatness of God

sunrays

I see you in the vast, blue sky,

The sun, the moon, and stars,

The galaxies and Milky Way,

The planets, Earth, and Mars.

 

I hear you in the praises sung

By dove and mockingbird.

They sit outside my window

As I read through you Word.

 

I smell you in the air I breathe,

Among the pines and firs

I praise you with uplifted hands,

And tell you I am yours.

 

I feel your presence in my life.

You’re everywhere, it’s clear.

From all that you have given me

Your love for me’s most dear.
