the rocks beneath the waterfalls
the sunsets in the sky
the fresh scent of fresh cut grass
and dried up flower petals
the pure, transparent glass water
the shine of golden highlights in hair
from the sun
the loving kindness of a mother
and footprints in the sand
the smell of cookies in the kitchen
and holiday traditions
the wind on a hot day
and ice cream trucks in the summer
the embrace of a friend
a letter in the mail
things of God
they are so
- lovely -
maybe they are simple
but nothing helps me remember
that God is there better
than these things
these wonderful
- shades.of.grace -
