The Artist by donna edgar 4-14-2013
God is the artist that created this space,
Not only in beauty, but with unmatchless grace.
He painted a glimpse of what Heaven is like,
A display of His wonder, a sampling of His might.
From His palette of colors He blends for the sky,
soft shades of blue, purple and white,
He painted it perfect; It is good in His sight.
He blankets the mountains in the purest white snow,
The sunrise He paints with a warm glorious glow.
And where day and night merge at twilight's edge,
He washes the sky with yellow-orange and muted red.
There are lilacs and daisies of every soft hue,
And every gentle morning they are kissed by the dew.
Pink roses are blooming, the grass is so green,
There is peace in my valley, my soul is serene.
Beauty surrounds us far as the eye can see,
The Lord created this world for you and me.
