Your Smile

With a smile You hung the stars and gave each a unique name.

Like a child on the beach You ran Your fingers through the earth, creating rivers and valleys.
You poured water into Your thumbprints.

Your whisper told the flowers when to bloom—
and how to arrange their delicate petals around their praising faces.

With a grin You gave breath to chickadees, elephants, wolves and penguins…
and delighted in their wordless praise.

And it was with joy that You bestowed man with Your heartbeat and lips to exalt You.

You are amazing, Creator Father. Your wisdom and creativity take my breath away.

My dreams, my hopes, my fears and desires—I lay them in Your wise hands.
Make something beautiful out of them.

I can’t wait to see Your smile.
