Where We Are

Yesterday's Spectacular did not keep the Creator from a Whole New Awesome this morning!

Where whole new whorls of Awesome wait their colors to unfurl
Where woman-whisper blossoms from wee wisp of little girl
Where morning breathes a beacon to the berm of earth’s Far East
And sets before adoring eyes sun’s rising glory-feast

…where Lad and Lass have mom-dad-shoes to fill when they grow up
Where worth is not a money-grab but poured from Passion's Cup
Where we are all never too young or old to need love so
And learn from one another what the other does not know

Where Beauty is the token of nature’s unspoken word
Where each Today finds new ways to leave wonder’s vertex blurred
Where dark and light, lark and leaf-kite ally like balladeers
To compose Magnum Opuses to stun our eyes and ears

Where fear would steer us clear of fancy and its bitty dream
But God, so rich in mercy mentors us through Living Stream
And as we drink the Elixir from heaven-unfettered fount
Hope’s well-spring overflows with ‘ohs’ too bountiful to count

…where there is always something to be thankful for in spite
Of all the ways that we could name to buckle in the fight
Where we, seasoned heart-breakers, make amends and friends, for This
…for this is where we are and this is always where God IS

he will never leave you nor forsake you. 
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."
