A Kansas Song

The Evening Sky

Hues of purple, orange, and fire
Alight the western sky.
Every stroke of Artist brush
Boasts boldly Thy creative eye.

Prairie grasses wild and free
Bow down their slender frame,
As rushing winds assert their praise
And birds wing back refrain.

Boughs of treetops high and low
Wave in revelry;
Each petaled flower from lowly ground
Lifts high its praise to Thee.

Dull and gray the clouds give way
Breaking through the patterned lace
The glorious sunshine of Thine love,
Rejoicing glory of Thy face.

And we Thine people, frail as dust
Reflect our joy to be
Crafted within the Master’s hand,
Created for glory of Thee.

I’m Erica and I love coffee, coffee, and more coffee, with a splash of half and half in every cup, any time before 4 pm. I need coffee, you see, because 3 girls:21, 18, 12; and 1 boy:16; call me mom. There is also a high school exchange student and a dog, with frequent comings and going of various friends, and a father-in-law who lives next door. And last, but definitely not least, there is an amazingly handsome man who spoils me far more than a girl could ever dream of who calls me “Hon.” That would be my husband if you’re not following me. But even with all of these blessings, and ALL of that coffee, this girl held a whole lot of longings in her heart: longings for joy, longings for love, longings for contentment...the list goes on. There was only one place to go, One Person, really. I found the One who satisfies my soul at the Well that flows with His Living Water. Pop in anytime and let’s have coffee over the Word together.
