I Saw God Today

Daddy and Jackie

I Saw God Today
Lyrics by George Strait

I just walked down the street to the coffee shop

had to take a break

I'd been by her side for eighteen hours straight

I saw a flower growing in the middle of the sidewalk

pushing up through the concrete

like it was planted right there for me to see

the flashin' lights, the honkin' horns

all seemed to fade away

in the shadow of that hospital at 5:08

I saw God today

I've been to church

I've read the book

I know He's here, but I don't look

near as often as I should

Yeah, I know I should

His fingerprints are everywhere

I'd just slow down to stop and stare

opened my eyes and man I swear

I saw God today

I saw a couple walking by they were holding hands

Man, she had that glow

yeah I couldn't help but notice she was starting to show

I stood there for a minute takin' in the sky

lost in that sunset

a splash of amber melted in the shades of red

I got my face pressed up against the nursery glass

She's sleeping like a rock

My name on her wrist wearing tiny pink socks

She's got my nose, she's got her mama's eyes

My brand new baby girl

She's a miracle

I saw God today

"Jackie, are you 3 today?" reply, "No, I five." Happy 3rd birthday, Jackie.
With marvel and joy for all 4 of our baby girls,
