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:
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.
