Give me the sun on the horizon,
a pink-lemonade sky above . . .
give me a partly cloudy day
and I’ll tell you why Jesus I love.
Give me the shade of the elm,
the Good Book for me to read
give me something cool to drink
and I’ll have close to all I need.
Give me the creek’s soft humming,
chirps coming from a mother’s nest
give me the green grass to lay in
well ~ you can picture the rest.
Give me a Scripture to mediate on,
a soft breeze blowing across my face
give me a day dwelling upon
God’s amazing, wonderful grace.
Give me the aromas of a barbecue,
my mom’s homemade apple pie
give me laughter around an open fire
the warm sounds of a summer’s sigh.
Give me a day in the radiant Son shine,
so I can reflect on God’s perfect love
give me a day to spend basking . . .
in the goodness that comes from above!
” Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of
good report; if there be
any virtue, and if there be
any praise, think on these things.”
King James Version
Deborah Ann Belka
