Water Crystals

A Poem
Read Time: 0 minute
A soft breeze touches my cheek
Gentle roar of dancing water
Flows irresistibly to the seaThe sun filters through the trees
Turning hanging water droplets
Into tiny glowing crystalsTwo of them wondrously
Turn to sapphires as I draw closer
I catch an amethyst, an emerald

Then a perfect reflection of
The golden sun in heated glow
Reminding me of John’s vision

The crystal blue around God’s throne
Only the glowing beams of the sun
Bring these water gems to life

And the same loving Creator gives
The water of life freely so we may
Reflect a tiny fragment of His glory

Suggested Readings
At the end of today’s reading in Mark 3, we learn that Jesus’ “mother and his brothers came, and standing outside they sent to him and called him” (v31), but his response was, “Here are my mother and my brothers! For whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.” (v34).
