THE CREATOR TOOK HIS TIME WITH YOU

YOU ARE UNIQUE IN EVERY WAY

EVEN THE PERSON 

YOU MAY HAVE THE MOST IN COMMON WITH  DIFFER


YOUR FINGER, AND FOOTPRINT 

TELL A STORYA

BOUT HOW GOD TOOK HIS TIME WITH YOU


GOD TOOK HIS TIME AND IT SHOWS

OF ALL THE BEINGS IN ALL THE WORLDS

SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME

NOT ONE OF THEM HAVE YOUR PRINTS


EVEN THE 5 SENSES VARY

FROM PERSON TO PERSON

YOU DON’T TASTE THE SAME

HEAR THE SAMES

MELL THE SAME

SEE THE SAME

OR FEEL THE SAME

AT THE SAME TIME 

AS ANYONE ELSE BECAUSE GOD TOOK HIS TIME WITH YOU

MONEY IS MAN MADE

ITS A CREATION

OF A CREATION OF ANOTHER CREATION


YOU ON THE OTHER HAND

YOU ARE BY FAR PRICELESS

BECAUSE GOD MADE YOU

AND HE TOOK HIS TIME
