    Our Creative Friends

    A Daughter of God

    As a daughter of God

    I can do many things.

    I’m able to be

    kind and true.

    I have a body

    made in His image;

    with it there are many

    things I can do.

    I’m able to serve my

    family and friends

    in so many ways I

    can’t count them.

    I can make beds and

    help Mom make dinner,

    then pick her a flower

    on its gentle stem.

    I can jump

    and I can run,

    and laugh and

    sing and play.

    Thank you, dear Father,

    for letting me be

    Your creation,

    I’m grateful today.

    God’s Creation

    The grass is green, the leaves are too.

    The sun shines brightly on me and you.

    The flowers say hello as the breeze blows by.

    I love to look at the blue, blue sky.

    The dogs chase and the kittens play.

    God has given us this beautiful day.
