God Spoke

I asked for sunshine
And woke to blue skies

Grateful for the gift
I hurried out
to celebrate the sun

Rain drops glistened
on the branches and the leaves
A daybreak festival
of shimmering lights



As quickly as the sun awakened me
I watched the grey clouds
reclaim the skies

Why, Sun, why?
Why must you surrender?

God whispered softly
....for my eyes to hear



Words escaped me
Tears did not

...I stood humbled
...and embarrassed by my selfish plea

Today I Pray...

...with a humble and grateful heart

...thank You for making the greatest of all sacrifices

...thank You for today

"Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow." James 1:17

I have been guilty of this before and I LOVE that you recognized it for what it was and embraced it with an open heart.
