Sacred Sketch-pad

PAD Challenge say 21: For today’s prompt, write a sketch poem. 

Yesterday's 'sketch-pad' groaned with laden tables 
lovingly furnished by a fantastic cook; my sister-in-law! 
Easter celebrations included much precious family time
celebrating Something/Someone nothing/no one can erase;

 "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. 
Let nothing move you. 
Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord,
 because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."
1 Cor.15:58 
Today's sketch-pad wears more modest Musts but with Sacred Purpose.
Praying His wonder to thunder through our blunders today!

Soft, as darkness dims to gray
Spreads the canvas of new day
Lend-ed to this earthy race
From a splendid hand of grace
Where dawn’s orchestra of Light
Fills these frames of faith with sight

Creator and creature meet
On Time’s featured music-sheet
Thought and deed’s intrinsic font
Wakes the war of will and want
Where the page soon wears love’s voice
God within unveiled through choice

Soft, on crofts of borrowed Here
Mingles dust of trust and tear
Where the artist and the art
Wrangle, torn twixt head and heart
Aware of the dye that flows
Through Time’s Certain Curtain Close
