A walk through the many fields of this life
Beauty easily seen woven into such mystery
Flowers and butterflies
Men and women and children, ourselves,
A hummingbird sips on a backyard feeder one cold and frosty morning.
The heart tugs at purpose and deepest meaning
Yet, the body, the mind of the world pulls away
Letting go of these precious moments when we marvel
Stand in awe as children, child-like once more
When hands of trust take hold of what draws us near,
Riches the world cannot offer
True wealth hidden in plain view,
Gift that patiently waits
Quietly as early morning dew
Jewels and silver and gold upon the earthly grasses,
Even time stands still
Then steps aside for a greater reality
A kiss of Heaven’s truth sweet upon the lips
A kiss of love upon the scars of this life,
Beauty that lasts, drapes like a robe about the shoulders,
Heaven’s clothing simply unmatched.
“Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift.”
