Whisper-soft...


Such blushing beginnings to today!


Whisper-soft the darkness 
Yields to pink and gold 
Kind of like heart’s hardness 
Melts in love’s warm hold 
Kind of like the winter 
When it turns to spring 
Kind of like a sinner 
Sheltered by God’s Wing 

Whisper-soft the mantle 
Of night sheds its twill 
Kind of like a candle 
On earth’s window sill 
Dissolving the darkness 
With Hope’s gentle ray 
Kind of like heart’s hardness 
Dissolves when we pray 

Whisper-soft light scatters 
Shadows from the air 
Kind of like love’s answers 
To our question-prayers 
Kindling from cold ashes 
Mercy’s gleaming toll 
Kind of like grace washes 
Darkness from the soul

 It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, 
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!…
Lam.3:22-23
