Finding True Beauty

 Rain rules and cuts short outdoor chores well-planned.
(Praying and planting seem to go hand in Hand)
We entrust seed's bounty to the Giver and
ask strength and wisdom for toil's 'meanwhile-demand'

No matter what we hold,
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

Hold lightly what God grants thee
Like trees and birds and flow’rs
Everything is His bounty
And never really ours

Each life, a gift from heaven
Its strife, the price of sin
Its hope, Lord of creation
Its light, the love of Him

Hold lightly what God grants thee
And trust His full control
Then peace will be the beauty
That satisfies thy soul
