CHOOSE TO SEE By Lori A Alicea

Choose to see His blessings flow,
God’s promises to keep.
blessing 3Still see His tidal wave of love,
When waves are ankle deep.
blessings 1Choose to see from where they sit,
Advantage of their views.
To understand them, take and walk,
A mile in their shoes.
walk in their shoesChoose to see a father’s love,
In hugs and kisses gives.

His thoughtfulness revealed in gifts,
His life for you he lives.

Choose to see and stand with strength,
Your hero lives within.
hereo 1
You’re capable, you are enough,
Your story waits, begin.
hereoChoose to see and learn from those,
Your generation past.
Their wisdom gained, experience,
This sea of wealth is vast.

Choose to see a child’s joy,
Their laugh, a medicine.
LAUGHTERChoose to see you’re beautiful,
The outward and within.
cova 3Choose to see the little things,
The ties that bind love tight.

A walk, a talk or sweet embrace,
Or close beside at night.

Choose to see their will “I can”,
Though that their size is small.
kizzie 7Release them to the tallest wave,
Or scale the mountain tall.
kizzie 9Choose to see and celebrate,
Uniqueness’s inside.

For those who choose a different course,
Another wave to ride.

Choose to see your confidence,
You’re born for this you know.

So step out in your destiny,
Set free your dreams to grow.
cova 9Choose to see how fast time flees,
Like wind, her curls blow.
bride 5 keepFrom morning rise to evening set,
Your little girl will grow.
bride 1Choose to see the house you live,
Four walls for where you sleep.
home 7As home, a special place reserved,
For all the hearts you keep.
family 2Choose to see how big God is,
He longs to hear His name.
big God is 4Our restlessness His waters calm,
His beauty doth the same.
big God is 1Choose to see His promises.
Fulfilled though wonder why.
Yet wait in hope His promises,
Are written in the sky.
promise 3 (2) keepChoose to see that love is strong,
As ocean waves that flow.
Aloha bids a sad good-by,
Yet greets a sweet hello.

Choose to see the love you share,
Who set your heart aflame.

And cherish every smile of theirs,
Who call you each by name.
aloha 10Choose to see when difficult,
When eyes are blind to thee.
Find hope and confidence in faith,
As this is how you see.
choose to see 1

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for,
and assurance about what we do not see.
Hebrews 11:1 NIV
