“God wills but ill,” the doubter said,
“Lo, time doth evil only bear;
Give me a sign His love to prove,
His vaunted goodness to declare!”
The poet pointed where a flower,
A simple daisy, starred the sod,
And answered, “Proof of love and power
Behold, behold a smile of God!”
—William Cox Bennett A Thought

Mother Nature is proof of God. A simple creation of such beauty; a flower brings beauty to the eyes and scent to the nose!!! Woohoo! Not sure daisies are that “pretty” smelling 😉 xox m
Thanks for the comment, Melis! Daisies are not very fragrant but I surely couldn’t make one, any more than I could a rose. 😉 It is true that all of Creation proves God. Very true,and thanks for that!
Simply beautiful. 🙂
Thanks, J! I love daisies and this was the prettiest I could find. I was happy to find one to go with the poem, too. 🙂 Glad you liked it and glad you stopped by!
