It is sometimes a wondrous thing
to watch how our heavenly Father loves, uses, instills dreams
and reveals Himself to us, despite how we might muddle things
along the way:
Faith-- like seeing through a dark glass,*
yet we live in You,
and have our being.**
To see without totally seeing,
to touch without tangential familiarity,
walking in truth
when we might sometimes feel aloof,
I thought the minstrel sang,
"Love crucified a Rose"',
and in rocketing zeal
I sensed the fragrance of Grace,
seeing the Pure, Innocent,
the Lamb of God slain.
But then the real words,
"Love Crucified Arose",
lyrically corrected me.
Yet, by then,
your Resurrection seemed
like a blood-stained Rose
come to my wilderness.
