If God Looked Through My Window

If God looked through my window
And watched me while I played,
Would He see me grumping
'Cos Johnny stole my spade?

If He saw me have a tantrum
Would He send me to the stairs?
If I fell and grazed my knee
Would He wipe away my tears?

If He saw me laughing
As I tickled puppy's tum,
Would He come on over
And join in all the fun?

Then, when the day was over
And I'd snuggled in my bed,
Would He reach His hand across
And gently stroke my head?

I don't know all about Him
But I really think He would -
I think He'd do these kinds of things
To help me to be good.

'Cos when I look at Mum and Dad
And see the things they do,
It helps me - just a little bit -
To see what God's like too.
- Mark H (DelightInLight.com)

I love this poem. I'm going to share it with the children at my church.

Thanks - glad you like it :)

In some ways it's also a warning / encouragement to parents to remind us that we are really acting for God (sort of "in loco parentis") as we raise "our" (really His) children.

I also think that this is a beautiful poem. It says a lot not only to children but to parents as well. It spoke to me as a young adult. i will share it with my lady friend who is expecting a young one.
