A Little Observation--By Christine Tate--United States

A Little Observation

You still say God is obscure?
with a little observation
He can be seen and heard
in all of His creation.

Every time a bird sings
or a newborn baby cries,
each time a flower blooms
or a bee goes buzzing by...
when autumn leaves fall
and summer breezes blow,
from the frost on a pumpkin
or in freshly fallen snow...

just gaze upon a sunset
or a golden sunrise,
and behold the lightning
illuminate the sky...
when the ocean waves crash
or a rainbow should appear,
remember the creator God
has made His presence clear!

Christine Tate lives in New Jersey. She is the mother of three married sons and has eight grandchildren. She started writing inspirational poetry in 1994, and is blessed to encourage others and honor the Lord. She was widowed in 2007 and met her new husband Artie, a widower, in the nursing facility where their late mothers resided. They've been happily married for 2 1/2 years. Since neither of them ever expected to marry again, they consider it a "divine appt."


  1. Christine,

    Thank you! Your poem shows you are a real blessing to others.

  2. Amen. This so clearly describes how I feel as I look around the world God has given us. I truly live in a heavenly place, which makes it so much easier.


  3. Dear Chris,

  5. Hi Christine, It is when I'm out enjoying nature's glory that I feel closest to God. What a marvelous planet He created for us to enjoy! Extraordinary writing here! What part of New Jersey are you from? I was born in Irvington and went to Monmouth University before moving to Florida. This time of year I do miss the frost on the nearby pumpkin farm and the glorious colors of fall. Thank you for reading my work too. Have a great weekend! Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire

  7. Dear Christine, It's wonderful to hear you are living in Ocean County. I lived in Point Pleasant until my husband passed away. Then I relocated to Florida. Tom's River was just a stone's throw away. Guess I should say, "Howdy Neighbor." Best wishes, Carolyn Devonshire
