Five Little Pennies

 Five little pennies scattered on the ground
Bending over I pick them up, pennies! How profound
What could be the meaning of this? I thought…
Minding my own business I never sought…
To find the tiny treasure…let’s count them and measure…
What could this possibly mean…?
One penny, is usually a sign from heaven, that a loved one, gone on, is saying, Hi.
Two pennies simply dropped, fallen from the sky…
Three pennies, blessed indeed. My, oh, my!
Four pennies got my attention but still I cannot buy…
Anything with just four pennies…then I see five…
Five pennies, this must be a message but what?
My mind is intrigued. Why now? Why this spot?
I wrapped the pennies and tucked them within my pocket-book…
I’ll save them for later, then take another look…
Dear Lord, what is the meaning of these pennies that I found…?
Child, they’re just a little reminder that I am around…
Trust in me! ~God.

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
