Free For the Taking

Click on images to enlarge...
The ride home from picking up groceries took a good deal longer than expected because...

It’s free for the taking
Sight’s bread for the breaking
Where nature is waking
From want, worship’s ways
Creation delights us
And grandly invites us
Nay, dearly incites us
To give God full praise

Time’s four-season splendor
Gifts vistas of grandeur
Too countless to number
Of sky, sea and sod
The Father of mercy
To creatures unworthy
Fashions from fronds earthy
Faint glimpses of God

It’s free for beholding
God’s glory unfolding
A Masterpiece holding
Hope’s foothold in space
We pause in our plunder
Witnesses to wonder
As silences thunder
With goodness and grace

The earth is satisfied with the fruit of His works. Ps.104:13
