God Whispers

Weld, Maine

You know well enough how the wind blows this way and that. 
You hear it rustling through the trees,
 but you have no idea where it comes from or where it's headed next.
John (Chapter 3) The Message


The breeze
through the trees
brings
holy whispers,
reminding me
of His promises

rustling, gentle swaying
dancing green leaves
beautiful ballet
displayed against grey-blue hues

All dance,
shaking free from stillness
inviting me to join in the movement
of this new day

come play today,
all is joy


invisible Kingdom revealed to those children who hold the key

Listen!

He whispers-
I hear His voice
in the trees...
the chimes
join bird-songs
yet His whispers
I hear clearly
I'm carried along

Listen.

  7. Beautiful Dawn! You know how much I love trees and the way God speaks to us through them...perhaps what I'm hearing are his whispers through the breeze :)

  9. I love the focus on nature in this poem. I'm a big old Christian, husband is a pastor, but I rarely focus on the Gospel. If anything, I take people who are too narrowly focused on the Bible and cannot see what's beyond their blinders to task. This is a loving portrait of God's Creation. Also, we use The Message a lot at our church (United Church of Christ). Thanks for coming by my blog - I'll be back! Peace, Amy

walk along the shore with me and leave your footprints in the sand-
I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
