Much Beauty To Behold

 Social media is full of pictures showcasing spring-moments of marvel/worship!
So much beauty to behold as buds burst with bloom.

"Behold, these are the fringes of His ways; 
And how faint a word we hear of Him!
 But His mighty thunder, who can understand?"
Job 26:14

Such beauty to behold
The mold that shapes our days
Of dust-to-dust and hope-and-trust
Should burst with humble praise

Such beauty to behold
The Author of life’s law
Instills the loom of bud and bloom
With masterstrokes of awe

Such beauty to behold
In spite of sin’s just dues
The Giver of life’s greatest; love
Stuns us with Mercy’s hues

Much beauty to behold
No merchandise compares
To the design of copse and vine
In nature’s thoroughfares

Much beauty to behold
The Maestro of the limb
Imbues the girth of heav’n and earth
With grand glimpses of Him

  1. Lovely photos. Enjoyed the poem. Love this line: "love Stuns us with Mercy’s hues'. As well as the line about no merchandise comparing to the design of copse and vine.

    Wishing you a beautiful day, Janet.

    1. Hi Brenda,

      thank-you so much for your lovely words. I'm also happy to see that spring has come to your parts of the country at last as well. (I sneak-peeked to your post which I will read when I have time not to rush through it!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
