Creation's Symphony

Photo courtesy saavem, rgbstock.com
I love to sing a song to My Lord
but sometimes He sings a song to me

Raindrops provide a steady rhythm
while the wind blows a flute-y melody
Rustling leaves in the tree
whisper of words of love
from the Creator above

 A red-breasted robin sings melody
crickets drone backup
the Holy Spirit hums from within

As the music swells
my heart overflows
until I can't help but sing along with all nature
a symphony of praise
for God our King

An Open Door

I know your deeds.
 See, I have placed before you an open door
that no one can shut.
I know that you have little strength, 
yet you have kept my word
and have not denied my name.
Revelation 3:8

An open door before me stands.
Though long I have waited,
the Lord has not forgotten me.
I have kept the faith and He has rewarded me
with a glimpse - a path
to my future.

No one can stop me now!
