“God so loved the world that He didn’t send a committee.” This old saying fills me with rejoicing! Thank goodness He didn’t. But what if He had ? All dogs would be a standard shade of brown, the cheapest. The sky would be one shade of blue, again, the cheapest. All flowers would be one shade of white, along with the chickens. Cows could be painted with the leftover paint from the dogs and the flowers and the chickens. It gets worse. People would be cut from the same pattern, like cookies from a cookie cutter. Also trees and birds.But that was not His way. He made each snowflake different.each mountain and butterfly different, and each person different. No person in all history will ever be like you or me . I rejoice in the total diversity of God’s work, and in my rejoicing I wrote this poem.
Dazzle ignites the leaf bright splash as fall explodes, and there, electrifies the burning bush, shaking with Presence which delights and overloads, back lighted silver in the early morning hush. O Blaze of Blazes, I who have thrown my shoes and caution into the dancing winds of dawn, I who aspire to fire come leaping forth to risk encounter with the Glory shown.
who aspire to fire come leaping forth
to risk encounter with the Glory shown!
