From time to time I like to share my favorite songs and poems. Today's blog is sharing a poem by Kari L. Greenaway entitled "Palette" from 'There is a God'.

You've made every color

Known to the eye.

Made earth, the sea,

The midnight sky.

There's not a thing

That's passed Your hands,

Oh, King of Kings,

Almighty Lamb.

I have no doubt,

Yet many deny

The very one

Who gave them life.

They do not


You as beginning

And the end.

Oh, Father

Hear my cry!

Reveal to them

Before they die,

That Christ is hope

And love on high;

That Jesus is

Your gift to them,

If they'd just believe

And befriend,

There would be

A real tomorrow,

Without pain,

Without sorrow.

I praise, you Lord,

I say Amen!

(Now ends this prayer by poet penned.)

This poem speaks to me for several reasons. I dabble a little in recreational painting. Not very good at it but there's something within me that likes to do it. The colors swirling around which is why most of mine are abstract type paintings. I've used some as backgrounds for memes or Bible verses I post on Facebook. I'm sharing one of these paintings today as a background for a Bible verse.

I think since my total surrender to Christ a couple of years ago, this poem means more as after that, everything literally became brighter to me. Colors are more vibrant and even people that I was afraid of started to become beautiful to me. I pray for God to allow me to see His creations as He intended them to be and He is answering those prayers. If you find yourself in a dark place or everything just seems dark, take some time to really take in nature. Even if it's just sitting on your balcony or out in your yard. Try to tune out the man-made noises and concentrate on the clouds, the trees, the grass, the birds...anything and everything God created for us to enjoy.
