My Heavenly Father Loves Me

This is perhaps, my favorite childrens hymn. I love it. It truly does remind me of our Father's love for us. I remember one day, in the spring a few years ago, I was taking a walk. As I was walking along, the sun was gently warming by back, and I caught the most wonderful whiff of spring in the air. My heart was instantly touched, and I felt my Father's love for me. It was such a sweet, wonderful feeling and it warmed me to my core. This song came to my mind.

Whenever I hear the song of a bird

or look at the blue, blue sky,

Whenever I feel the rain on my face

or the wind as it rushes by.

Whenever I touch a velvet rose

or walk by our lilac tree

I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world

Heavenly Father created for me.

He gave me my eyes that I might see

the color of butterfly wings.

He gave me my ears that I might hear

the magical sound of things.

He gave me my life, my mind, my heart;

I thank him reverently,

for all his creations, of which I m a part.

Yes I know Heavenly Father loves me.

--Clara W. McMaster
I hope you have a beautiful Sabbath, and truly feel the wonderful, loving embrace of our most wonderful, divine Father in Heaven.
