On Seeing

You part my lips like the seas and make melodies spill forth
A deluge of notes, strung together with plan and purpose
Not my own but something other and beyond

Far out past the gaze of telescopes
You take me there.
Showing me creation
From a place of love and gaze of holiness

I sing of the greatest story ever told, with betrayal, sacrifice, and hope
Ever so much hope

And when that time comes of Your choosing that I sing no more
You close my mouth with soft fingers and gently envelop me into You
Your embrace overcomes my fears
and we are finally together


So Facebook does a major disservice to picture viewing, especially when it comes to the hi-res panorama shots that I put together. Here they are in all their megapixel glory! From the past several years...
