When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Wise and Wonderful Things

Wise And Wonderful
by Patricia A. Pitterle

Majesty and magnitude,
Unimaginable power 
And love,
Master of creation, 
Father of all.
With infinite skill 
He created life.
His hands filled seas
and moved mountains.

His hands 
Had the strength 
To design the mighty elephant,
And the gentleness 
To softly craft
The smallest butterfly wing.
All His creations 
Bear witness
Of His work and glory.

All things testify
Of His goodness, grace
And unconditional love.
Our bodies are created
In His image.
And to act in His name.
We are each
children of our 
Heavenly King.

We have hands 
To serve others,
Eyes to see their pain,
Ears to hear their needs,
Mouths to teach His doctrine,
And hearts to feel His love.
We are made
For wise 
And wonderful things.

We are here
Through the trials,
Heartaches and sorrows,
To find our faith,
To find our trust,
To find our joy.
To learn
How to return back home,
To Him.
