A little sunshine after the rain
Feeling joy after pain.
A friend calling to say, "Hey!"
After you have been away.
A little piece of pie after the meal
So wonderful it makes you feel.
A word of praise
When feeling down-cast
Your hopes raise.
A gentle breeze on a fevered brow
Makes you feel better some how.
A sip of cold water when thirsty and dry
Brings a smile and quiet sigh.
Glorious color of the setting sun
Awesome to behold when day is done.
A hug from a loving child
Brings joy to your heart
And to your face a smile.
The lilting song of a bird
The sweetest sound to be heard.
Fragrant scent of clean sheets on your bed
Soothing to a tired body when you lay down your
The warmth of a blazing fire
After a walk in frigid air.
Flowering buds in Spring
After the Winter snow
Brings to your heart a warm glow.
A hymn of praise sung from a grateful heart
Knowing God will never from you depart.
Little blessings that impact your life
Each and every day
In a most wonderful way.
