The Gift and the Challenge of Rest - Creation Day 7

Teach me the joy of rest,
Evening and morning, the cycle of life.
You recreate me so I can create.
Teach me the joy of rest.


High School Report Cards and Day 6 of Creation

You call me beautiful,
When I forget it, remind me again -
Over and over till my heart agrees!
You call me beautiful.

You call me beautiful.
Though I am tarnished, the beauty still shines.
Help me uncover the treasure within.
You call me beautiful.

Creation as an Icon - with Creation Song Verse 5

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God.
But only he who sees takes off his shoes,
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries. - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Set free the life within,
Trusting my senses as gateways to you.
One with creation and fully alive,
Set free the life within.
