Glimpse

image

Have you seen me?

In the night, in the dark
By the streetlamps, abandoned cars

We have spoken

In the allys, in the streets
In vacant desert lots

Did you hear my voice?

In the distance, on the wind
In the sun, the pouring rain

Or feel me touch your hands?

Pray for summer in the blizzard
For Warmth in the dead of winter

I offer understanding
Consolation reimagined
Meaning redirected
Purpose wrapped in life

Have you given away your reason?
Your substance or your time

Everything has its season
It’s reason and it’s rhyme

Can you read the message?
Written on your walls
Answering the call

Do you feel the expectation?

creation is still waiting
For the moment, for the day

That you find the way

catch a glimpse of meaning
And step into the light

The palest ghost of You

Stars sweep past
the ever circling night
Spreading thick, like diamond dust, drifting,
seeming to settle on the trees
Moonlit wisps of cloud
Like thin veils of white,
Enfold the sky in a nocturne of light chasing shadow
And I breathe you in
keeping time with my being
to this symphony of life,
but still knowing there’s more,
And this, a dim reflection,
like the distant refrain of the heavens,
or the chorus of all eternity
in beauty unconstrained,
like far off chimes of glass
carried upon the wind
But only remembered in a dream
Or the faintest aroma
of a million blossoms opening at the first light of
creation,
Speaking to me,
telling me all that could ever be heard
And all that will ever be told
is only the palest ghost
of  You
the faintest note of Your song
only the lightest tremor
of Your heart
and all it longs to share

INTO THE LIGHT

God gives parents to lead the way through life.  He grants them wisdom and direction. Children who give them their heart  and stay close receive divine protection, blessings and a long life for  their obedience and honor. Photo by Taylor
    Sometimes, It’s the simplest things in life that take you completely by surprise. An amazing sunrise that just blows away your sleepiness. A cool breeze carrying the scent of rain. The sight of a friend you thought you’d forgotten. A family of geese swimming together…
   This photo was posted on Facebook by some dear friends of mine, and I’ve thought about it off and on all day.
    The Image is so God! His truth SO embodies His creation, that we see His design everywhere we look. From the shape of a snowflake, to the colors of a rainbow, or in the behavior of geese on a pond, swimming into rays of light.
    The caption under the photo is theirs’ and it’s quite true. These geese are instinctively doing that which we should Intentionally be doing. Leading our young Into the Light.
    And not just our physical children, but our Spiritual children as well. Those whom God has called us to encourage and teach and guide. All Christians are leaders, whether we realize it or not. Let’s seek the wisdom and direction God has for us to lead the next generation Into His Light. Amen?
Thanks to Debbye and Taylor for posting the pic, You guys Rock!
