You Are

My friend Kaylee Dexter tagged me on this poem she posted recently on Facebook. Kaylee is a high schooler at our church and has an awesome heart for God, which is obvious once you read this poem. It stirred my heart toward heaven when I read it, so I thought I'd post it here on Kirk Haven:

You Are
Father, you are beautiful.
I see you in my daisy patch.
Your face is in my bouquet of smiles.

God, you are magnificent.
I feel your power in the storm.
Majesty is in your purple electric heavens.

Lord, you are forever King.
I hear your commands and know where they belong.
Life is just a prequel to my true beginning... or end.

Christ, you are sacrifice.
I smell your painful, saving scent.
You gave your last breath so I could speak your words to the end of the earth.

My Jesus, you are risen!
I taste freedom in your life!
You tore the veil, now forever you are with me, dancing in my heart and singing in my mind.

Wow, thanks for putting Kaylee's poem on your blog. I can't quite put into words what this Mama's heart feels to read that her child's words touched someone else's heart too.
