winter builds a wall
and sun breaks it down
hardness grows in the heart of man
and God pours His oil to soften it
whiteness buries the works of man
for a season
then the colors of spring
bring back the excitement and life
that was covered but not forgotten.
So too
when I am covered by sadness or fog
when a veil shrouds my countenance
it is a matter of time
and light
until the grace and mercy
lift me up and raise me above the mist
that swirled around my head.
No longer can I waste the day
or worry away the night
it is time to shine
and give glory
back to Him who made me.

desert rainbow
who can hold you?
storm passing leaves just a hint
of the beauty of seasons to come
you are born of harsh rains
and full of all the colors that will come
in the wildflowers that even now
are planning their wild
extravagant displays
for God and anyone whose eyes
will look carefully
to see what is true
