Pennies From Heaven

Angels appreciate things about you that you thought no one else ever even noticed.

I found a penny today
just laying on the ground.
But it's not just a penny,
this little coin I've found.

Found pennies come from heaven,
that's what my Grandpa told me.
Grandpa said, Angels always toss them down.
Oh, how I loved that story.

He said when an Angel misses you,
they toss a penny down..
Sometimes just to cheer you up,
and make a smile out of your frown.

So don't just pass by that penny
when you're feeling blue.
It may be a penny from heaven,
that an Angel's tossed to you.


I believe that the angel who first threw me the pennies is my grandmother, Jessie. When I was a little girl she was always giving me bright shiny "coppers", as she called them. I smile every time I find one.

Since my mother died in May of 2003 I have begun to find even more pennies. The ones I had previously found were just regular pennies. In addition to finding those I am now finding brand new shiny pennies.
