Pennies from Heaven?

Pennies from Heaven

If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes

I would never have believed it,

But I did.




Cooper penny


As if from the sky

Onto the ankle of the woman

With whom I was speaking.

She swatted her ankle

And asked, “What was that?”

We heard something.

She felt something.

When we looked around

We discovered:




Copper penny

Three inches from her foot.

To which the young woman responded ever-so-nonchalantly,

“It’s always grandma when it’s a penny.”

Had I not seen it

With my own eyes,

I’d never have believed it.

So now I know


That it’s not just an expression.

It’s so much more.

Thank you, God.
