When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking


When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking

When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned that it was good to be kind to animals.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make my favorite cake for me and I learned that the little things can be the special things in life.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick,
and I learned that we all have to help take care of each other.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you give of your time and money to help people who had nothing
and I learned that those who have something should give to those who don’t.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw you take care of our house and everyone in it
and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw how you handled your responsibilities,
even when you didn’t feel good
and I learned that I would have to be responsible when I grow up.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw tears come from your eyes and I learned that sometimes things hurt, but it’s all right to cry.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I saw that you cared and I wanted to be everything that I could be.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I learned most of life’s lessons that
I need to know to be a good and productive person when I grow up.


When you thought I wasn’t looking,
I looked at you and wanted to say, “Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.”

A RHYME OF RHYMES ~ About Hymns ~ Judie Pickett




A RHYME OF RHYMES
by Judie Pickett © 2007

JESUS PAID IT ALL
Is a song we often sing
He's our SOLID ROCK
He makes me A CHILD OF THE KING

I COUNT MY BLESSINGS
Because He LIFTED ME
For I KNOW WHOM I HAVE BELIEVED
Since I HAVE BEEN REDEEMED

WHEN THE MORNING COMES
I SURRENDER ALL
His SPIRIT NOW LIVES IN ME
I'm included in THE FAMILY OF GOD

He said I'm SAVED, SAVED
And there's ROOM AT THE CROSS
If I TELL IT TO JESUS
I will not be lost.

HE HIDETH MY SOUL
When he INCLUDED ME
He died AT THE CROSS
AT CALVARY

BECAUSE HE LIVES
IT IS WELL WITH MY SOUL
MY LORD IS NEAR ME ALL THE TIME
And now I'm WHITER THAN SNOW

FAITH IS THE VICTORY
WHEN HEAVEN CAME DOWN
As I stand IN THE GARDEN
I'm on HOLY GROUND

We sing these songs
To praise our Lord
To give Him the glory
As we sing His Word

This poem was not meant
To be shallow or unwholesome
But a loving tribute
To those who wrote them.
