Whenever you are so lucky

As to catch a ray of heaven

Like seeing a little girl

With her hand wrapped tightly around her daddy's fingerā€¦

Blind trust, indifference toward surroundings

Or seeing a young mother

With a boyfriend who still cares

An uncommon miracle, and a blessing from heaven

When an elderly couple

Has been married for fifty years

And you can still see the ray of heaven in their eyes

When the homeless man on the corner

Gets lunch from a stranger

Or the bully at school takes a day off

When children see a reason for learning

And adults find fulfillment in God

Rays of heaven may be small blessingsā€¦

But everyone can see them

No matter who they are.
