A Poem Composed by Sister Rose Ashour

God is Here
His voice
I heard it in the wind
He spoke to me in sunshine and in rain.
Flowers,birds and squirrels echoed his "Yes I am here."
All these spoke of Beauty.
Then down the pathway
Where I stood.
I saw a boy, a girl, a man, a woman,
His face was there--in theirs, the image of God.
This time I heard no voice,
But faith told me,
"Often you hear him
But seldom see."
So listen and look He's so near.
