Before Its Shadows Flee

There’ll be no more dirty feet to wash
Or tears to wipe away
No more chance to say, “Forgiven.”
To a son who’s lost his way

Oh yes the Lord will light our world
As our praises fill the air
But our chance to reach the lost
Is not an option there

Why do we wish for heaven so?
It’s time is soon to be
Right now we have a day to give
Before its shadows flee

 Until the day breathes and the shadows flee, I will go 
away to the mountain of myrrh and the hill of frankincense. 
Song of Solomon 4:6 ESV

Before Your First Sunrise

Before you saw your first sunrise
Or took that first breath of air
Before your first cry or you opened your eyes 
God knew that you were there

While He knit you together God chose your name
As He fashioned your hands and feet
And He wrote your story in His book of life
As your tiny heart started to beat

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
    and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
    Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
    as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
 You saw me before I was born.
    Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
    before a single day had passed.
Psalm 139:13-16 NLT

“A person’s a person no matter how small” Theodore Seuss Geisel ( Dr. Seuss )

Morning Come

When will morning come?
With the sun
With the cars
In the rush
Or riding on the bus?

And does it rise
In the skies
Unending work
On the farms
Filling up the barns?

Or could it shine
At a time
In the dark
Filled with cares
With a prayer?

Or with a light
In the night
Mary's child
God's own Son
His morning come!
