It’s a wonderful delight
in the absence of sunlight
to sit and gaze upon
a yellow bloom
A flower big and bright
I smile at the sight
a little bit of happy
fills the room
We sang one of my favorite worship songs this past Sunday- Beautiful One. I love how you can sing a song a hundred times, but God still makes it new in your heart! I heard this line-
You’ve opened my eyes to Your wonders anew, You’ve captured my heart with this Love...
As we sang this song, I began to think of all the ways He has “captured” my heart over the past week… little things– like a random phone call, or a simple text message from a friend. A compliment from a stranger, the perfect song on the radio at just the right time…
And yesterday He captured my heart again!
Last week, I had planned on going to pick sunflowers, but I ended up unable to go. There’s just something special about sunflowers- I can’t stop smiling when I see them! I was a little disappointed that I wasn’t able to go, but didn’t think much about it afterwards.
Well, just yesterday someone out of the blue brought me a bouquet of the longest, most beautiful sunflowers! She knew how badly I wanted to go pick them last week, and wanted to brighten my day. Such a simple gesture- but He captured my heart once again!
“You’ve opened my eyes to Your wonders anew,
You’ve captured my heart with this Love,
’cause nothing on earth is as beautiful
…that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. LORD my God, I will praise you forever. Psalm 30:12
