A moment that is now,
Quieting a heart,
Heart pumping, miraculously,
Feel my blood carrying the oxygen of life,
Breathing, gasps of air turned into life,
Feeding my body, full of glorious senses.
Eyes peer out into a colorful world,
Seeing close and far, processing pictures of His glory,
Into memories to be stored for another day,
Reliving the beauty of this moment.
Listening to the silence,
How is it when it is total,
The power of listening and understanding,
His Word all around us, enveloping love with each soft breadth.
If only I could talk His Words alone,
Remove these cluttered ramblings from my world,
And answer His call with deeds and speech,
That He may say,
You are my son, with whom I am well pleased.
