I’m perched on the edge of tomorrow
Resting for a just bit
Before I spread my wings again
By the call of the rising Son
I can see the wide world above
The wonder of trees and skies
The vast unseen unknown
Beckoning me to come
Small and frail as I am
I feel the earth below
Strong beneath my feet
The Rock on which I stand
Unending still and peace
But the breeze is stirring once again
It’s almost time to go
Yet I rest here quiet
In this breath of time
For the Son is shining on me
Warming me in His love
I’m soaking Him in
Before rising again
In just the right spot
Psalm 27:14– Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord! NKJV

I have the impression that you love the outdoors!
Yes, I really do. The earth is full of His glory! And I can see His hand everywhere when I am outdoors. A little harder to see inside my house. But from the vastness, to the majesty, to the intricacies, to the beauty…I find nature a breathtaking signpost of our amazing God.
