a simple reward at the close of the day
is to catch the sun rays shining through the clouds
i was sitting at the table talking to friends
at the end of our garage sale, feeling tired but satisfied
when i saw the tip of those rays barely in view
i grabbed my camera, went in the backyard
and began to get as high as i could
i ended up climbing one set of stairs
and another small stone rock way til i was in clear view
i just stood there amazed.
my heart is thankful that as faithful as the sun is
in rising and setting each day
so is His goodness and care in my life.
this day marks an end of a chapter of our lives
many people downsize
but we took it one step further
we liquidated everything.
i have a strange peace and a lightness of heart tonight
as i stood there watching those rays burst through the clouds
i thought i am blessed
i have nothing in this world
but i have everything i need.
