Pennies from Heaven

Remember this every time you pass that little penny in the parking lot. I always thought that it was for good luck, but I love this version better.


I found a penny today

Lying 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.

He said Angels 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,

To make a smile out of your frown.

So, don’t pass by that penny

When you’re feeling blue.

It may be a penny from heaven

That an angel’s tossed to you.
