Blue Sky

Could the sky be more blue?
It’s so clear today
Could the flowers be a more lovely hue?
They are at their peak today

All the greens seem even more so
Verdant boughs with fruit
Plump lemons swing to and fro
Cherries wear a bright red suit

Palm tree’s hands reach up high
As if to praise our King of kings
Thanking Him with each sway and sigh
While a bird to His glory sings

This garden visit lifts my soul
With the palms and birds I praise
Lord Jesus makes me whole
To Him my hands I raise!

Retreat

IMG_20140902_150211_011

Rough-hewn, wind carved
Gnarly bark,no pattern alike
Leaning a bit to the east
Giant pines stand guard

Water slapping at their feet
Reflecting their majestic boughs
Strewn rock adorns the shore
Jagged cliff an eagle’s seat

So blue the water and sky!
How deep the hue of both
One clear, no clouds at all
The other ripples, boats go by.

Sunshine warms the sandy beach
Making it so golden
Boulders blackened with time
Sit proudly past my reach

What a lovely place to be
Warm sun, cool breeze
Surrounded by God’s creation
His glory vast and free

My sense of Him ignited
My heart overwhelmed
My mind finally calm
His arms around me tightened

Leaning against His chest
So quiet, so much love
This earth just disappears
This must be His Holy rest!
