Brightness


Good morning, faithful readers!  Egg & Twig has a pretty new look & these pretty peonies are turning their fluffy white faces to the sun in our flower beds today.

My husband and I had a great time at the homeschool convention, and Gregg Harris, Rebecca Keliher, and Tracy Klicka gave us lots to digest.  All our curriculum has been ordered for next year and I think Kindergarten is shaping up to be a lot of fun.  Our current school year is winding down and I'm looking forward to summer break.

I hope to be back soon with a tasty Indian recipe, but this morning I wanted to share a tidbit of writing I did a few months ago, a sort of demi-psalm reflecting on Isaiah 59 and 60, and Psalms 18,19, and 24.

Brightness

To the brightness
of your rising
come sinners and kings
forsaking the world
for new life within.
Great are your promises!
All your purposes stand!
You uphold the world
with your Almighty hand.
Sovereign and glorious
you save and you hear
iniquity drove far
but your own arm brought near.
Your Word is sweeter
than any honeycomb
more costly than silver
more precious than gold.
A man who repents
you will set on dry ground
for a lamp that you light
no water can drown.
Oh Lord your way's perfect
your Word forever true
blessed are all
who take refuge in you.
