Beyond the Sparkle of These Eyes...

Beyond the sparkle of these eyes
Beneath the dust-breathed veil of skin
Exists a soul that never dies
That God alone has woven in

Man cannot reach to purge from him
This mystery saved by Love’s grace
And only God beholds its face


And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.
 Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 
Matt. 10:28


  1. Lovely, true, and especially meaningful at this time.



  2. Sue, thank-you. It's easy sometimes to get caught up in the thought that this is all there is. 'This' is a narrow threshold to Forevermore!

  3. Wow!

    'The soul is not a dust-formed limb
    And only God beholds its face'

    I love that, and this whole piece.

  4. Thank-you Jennifer. Funny how one word 'beyond' sparks a whole train of thought!


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
