Take a Minute to Marvel...









Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows. 
James 1:17

Take a minute
Then look in it
Count God’s gifts to
You and I
Look how laughter
Sweetens after
Sorrow spills then
Passes by

Touch the places
That love graces
With meek, holy
Reverence
Soon the motion
Of Time’s ocean
Tunes a tide of
Severance

It is never
Always winter
Sea of seasons
Ebbs and flows
Trouble-bubble
Harvest, stubble
Winter harbours
Summer's rose

See, love's hours
Bloom like flowers
In the gardens
Of our hearts
Take a minute
And look in it
At the beauty
It imparts

Not for nothing
Is the Something
That we suffer,
Savour, oh,
We can weather
Any weather
Through the grace where-
By we go

Want is surprised…
Time is baptized
With mercies
That leaves thought awed
Take a minute
And look in it
At the tender
Touch of God

Over, under
Ages thunder 
With God's love
Misunderstood
Calm or chaos
God is with us
Always faithful
Kind and good
