This Joy

This joy pushes at my skin,

leaves my heart fluttering 

in breathless wonder —

I am allowed to create;

so, may I write in humility, 

a beautiful lowliness, 

the recognition that I am 

a created being guarded 

by the Almighty,

shaped by His hands,

safe in His arms,

one through Jesus.

I am overwhelmed by art,

the gift of crafting beauty

that speaks of God’s

magnificence, reflecting

His creation in words

and images as others reflect

in sculptures, paintings, dance —

the emanations of our imitation

is a grace He reigns down

on us, the smile of a Father

accepting our attempts

to capture the joy

that He alone gives.
