12-24-13 Seek Ye First


The dawn-frozen, frost covered lawn crunches crisply

under the dog’s tiny feet as we both breathe in the bracing Southern air

and then out again in moist, vaporous clouds that disappear

like the memory of that cozy dream I had a few minutes prior.

My silent prayer is clear and simple like the pale blue sky.

Your immediate Presence warms me from the inside out

and as we commune I forget the cold winter morning for awhile.

No matter what the day brings it will be a blessing

wrapped a million different ways and in clever disguises,

but this one is stark and piercing as the morning sun

while You wrap me with Your perfect love.

The whole Earth will fall away, but not this,

not this.
