Dear Holy Friends,
Yesterday we had some wild thunderstorms move through here. For a while Adam and I watched the lightning with wonder. Then it got very close. The wind blew so strong it almost knocked me over. So we went inside. Later, after the storm ended there were trees down all over everywhere. Today on the other hand is hot, clear, and beautiful. It's summer's way of teasing me that fall arrived yesterday! But this poem just seems to fit . . .
In his grip, Chandra Lynn Smith
HEAVEN TOUCHED EARTH
There are days now and then
when bits of heaven touch earth,
when you know without a doubt
all created thing have worth.
On a day like this
the sun shines more brilliant light,
the sky is a richer shade of blue,
clouds are radiant white.
The birds and the crickets sound joyous
calling you to join the song,
the gentle breeze makes you wish
this would last all week long.
When God blesses you with this day
enjoy its simple bliss,
turn your face heavenward
receive God's holy kiss.
