  God is every where
can you see him
in the trees that put forth new life
in the flowers that bloom
in the birds that sing
in the sky of blue
in the clouds that float by
in the animals that frolic

God is every where even in me
i pray people can see him
in the things that i do

I know i do things that arent so smart
a cross word here, a frown there
a gossip here, and a pointing finger there

I thank God that he is stronger than me
to take a lowly creature and make her new again
to put a new song in her heart
and make her glad to live for him.
to help her break bad habits { such as smoking}
and find a good habit to put in its place.
such as a smile here or a good word there
a keep my nose in my own business here
or pointing a finger at the bible there.

To each person who reads this Please keep my husband and I in your prayers
we are trying to quit smoking and need all the prayer we can get.
Thanks, Joyce

I like that, about putting a good habit in its place - and writing is a great habit to have!

Good luck to you. I smoked when I was young and quit a long time ago. I like what you say about God being in everything. I don't go to church because I can't find him there.

Yes I do see God everywhere! How can He not be there? I like your story, smoking addiction is a tough one to break, I was fortunate, when I left the military I was able to quite cold turkey. See my newly posted song "Rainbow to Rainbow", stories liked this were part of the inspiration for it.

Good luck in your quest. It is a struggle but in the end you will reap the benefits. Your poem is very inspiring and nicely written and should help you and your husband on your journey.
