A speck in the eye ...

Updated on January 7, 2014
Source

We are but a speck in the eye of the Lord... when viewing such beauty ..remember that the Lord, gave us eyes.... to appreciate the wonders around us...but also the beauty above us..

Look up .. and be amazed at the sky.

What beauty doth the Lord
make for my eyes...
which I see ...when looking
up to the skies

Only could such colors
come, from a canvas paint...
or the gleam ....of loveliness
in the eyes of saints

Twinkling stars...
a background make
with turquoise green
streaks... lie in wake

A twisted braid
of white and red...
filling the dreams
within my head

      Michael. I love this works from you dear bro. How could one not see the creator in our world above? He shows himself in HIS glorious creation. His color wheel is amazing love. Just wait until heaven. We will be so awe struck more so than now. He has gone to prepare a place for us. Amen And soon to return. Dear Lord do not tarry.

      This is really beautiful. I like to pause, enjoy the quiet, and watch the sky and the rest of the world moving around me. I felt that feeling within this poem.

      You could have written pure garbage but I was so happy to see you I would not have cared.

      Beautiful points, hard to even comprehend the same God we sometimes fear and read such stories of is the artist of all the beauty we cannot even describe the feelings for. He has even given the talent to many to paint it but He only speaks beauty into being. Then He gives those like you talent to paint with words, Michael. So beautifully. ^+
