Beautiful In Its Time

“[God] has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:11

I went for a walk on this cool spring day,

Stopping by our lizard my respects to pay

As he warmed himself up on our house wall,

Then lifted my eyes hearing heaven’s call,

Was transported by the cloudy array

Gracing the skies (a glorious display!)

Then set off to get some sun and fresh air

And was blessed by God’s beauty everywhere!

The fragrance of roses greeted my nose

And trees in full bloom were ready to pose

For my camera, which I could not contain

But kept pulling out some beauty to frame.

Though most of my neighbors have manicured lawns,

It’s not far to where untamed nature dawns.

Along the backroad of our neighborhood

Mustard plants reaching my eye-level stood,

Cat tails were rampant in both green and tan

And yellow flowered weeds everywhere ran.

In springtime there’s beauty, even in weeds,

Which, if I stop to look, my spirit feeds.

They gave the roadsides a bright yellow glow

Which caused me to pause and my pace to slow

So I could examine individually

Their beauty which God created for me.

And my heart was struck by this truth sublime:

God makes all things beautiful in His time!
