Of Life's Lovelinesses...

A stunning sunrise...after last night's skies kept worshipers transfixed through moon-rise!

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Ps.19:1

The loveliness of living spills
Like Love’s caress through trouble’s ills
Its unmerited blessing fills
The humble heart with hope
And offers glimpses of a Prize
Reserved in heaven’s paradise
It ushers gladness to our sighs
Plants flowers on life’s ‘nope’

The loveliness of living pours
In morning-streams through far-flung doors
As mercy offers polished floors
That none before have trod
Where creature need and creature care
Will ever be a bond we share
To bind mankind in earnest prayer
And fix our faith on God

The loveliness of living cheers
This thoroughfare of seasoned tears
It tames time’s tempest, wild with fears
In frames of ‘peace, be still’
Earth thunders with a picture-show
Where wonder wakens worship, oh
To praise God’s grace whereby we go
Through woe and trouble’s ill

    1. amen! reminds me of something a friend said when going through a very hard time; there's a part of God one can't know till He walks, no carries us through the low!
