Morning's Color-world





Across celestial croft
Soft-kissed, night’s mural fades
As newborn day persuades
In Origins aloft
From Master-hands unfurled
A virgin bloom uncurled
To fill the sweep of hill and deep
With morning’s color-world

Have any heard or seen
Time stirred like this before?
Heaven unbars a door
Stars dim within the sheen
Of opportunity
And all that waits to be
As grace anoints what it appoints
To Mercy’s filigree

The wonder of the Lord
Is not a hidden spring
But touches everything
That man cannot afford
Freely His Hand bestows
The tincture to a rose
That fills the air with Welcome where
Morning’s color-world glows

Can you check the weather? asked my son before going to work.
Well, I replied, according to the red sky this morning it will rain today.
Aw, that doesn't mean anything, he said, hoping they will harvest grain today...
Well, according to Matthew 16 it does, and I hunted up this passage,

The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. But He replied to them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' "And in the morning, 'There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times?…

We checked the local forecast. It predicts a 70% chance of thunderstorms today.
