Prelude to the Fulfilled Promise

For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--
his eternal power and divine nature--
have been clearly seen, 
being understood from what has been made, 
so that people are without excuse.

Dusk was a divine blend of mauve, pink and blue...

He flings fragments of grandeur to the frames of earth and sky 
And draws from worship’s wonder the pure homage of ‘oh my’ 
Oh so much that we wished for disappears as we behold 
The beauty from a Troubadour whose art never grows old 

He exceeds expectation without stipulation’s fence 
The Author of elation showcases His evidence 
And extends with His handiwork on sky and land and sea 
An open invitation to Creation’s Gallery 

Ah, who could afford the price of a daily ‘looking fee’ 
If God would change his mind and not awe humankind for free 
If we needed a ticket to see clouds or sun-moon-stars 
Or to feast eyes on the Beauty of earth’s four-season bars 

He manifests his qualities, eternal and divine 
In the wondrous intricacies of Creation’s design 
So that we are without excuse in recognizing He 
Who spills His transcendental proof on sky and land and sea 

We are treated to glimpses of God’s Supreme Majesty 
Ere Heaven stuns the faithful ones with promised wait-and-see 
He tells us these are but the outer fringes of His ways 
The faintest whispers sparking the prelude to endless praise
