A Grand Charity

When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers — the moon and the stars you set in place — what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? — Psalm 8:3-4

There is great comfort 

in the majesty of trees

and sky, when I look

up, my smallness

magnified by the size

of a green canopy

and beyond the dome

of blue to the dark-

wide of space—

such beauty sparks

a deep praise

in me, a recognition

of the One able to cast

the stars and us,

His love whispering

to me in the wind-

quaked leaves 

that He is mindful

of me is such mystery, 

and I am startled

by His grand 

and settled charity.
