Enough and more

to see the moon in morning sky

my heart hopes

my soul sings

it is enough – and more this gift

to hear a bird call, clear in the morning quiet – to feel soft air upon my face

my heart gives thanks

my soul rejoices

it is enough – and more than I deserve

to feel sun’s warmth, its comfort and renewing power

my heart thaws, filling full of sunbeams’ light

my soul opens wide

it is enough – and more than I can ever contain

to view sky at end of day, glorious colors changing, rearranging – a living art show to inspire, a reward for the day’s labor

my heart thrills at such unexpected beauty

my soul dances in praise

it is enough – and more, infinitely more than I can ever convey

to lie beneath the night sky, watching stars turn on their lights one by one till all the starry host arrive, in concert and in constellation presiding over earth till sun’s awakening sends them to slumber elsewhere

my heart stills – quieted by the timeless presence of each and every light God calls by name

my soul sighs, longing for what lies on the other side of eternity

it is enough – and more, much more than I can comprehend

glimpses of eternity – it is enough – and more, more than I could ever imagine

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” (Psalm 19:1-4)

“The day is Yours, and Yours also the night; You established the sun and moon. It was You who set all the boundaries of the earth; You made both summer and winter.” (Psalm 74:16-17)

sincerely, Grace Day
