Your song to me

“Every heart sings a song, incomplete, until another heart whispers back. Those who wish to sing always find a song. At the touch of a lover, everyone becomes a poet.”
Plato

And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, And I will offer in His tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
Psalm 27:6

(cardinal singing high in the tree tops / Julie Cook / 2015)

Head down,
busy doing,
lost in thought

When a delightful sound,
A lyrical tittering cadence,
calls for my attention

My head lifts
My eyes search
Seeking the source of the call

I careen my neck
Looking high into the trees
The lush new foliage hiding your presence

Elusive yet persistent
Sweet and inviting
You call out, seeking

Your tenderness I cannot ignore
I listen with intensity,
for your persistence is rhythmically inviting

You call out to me,
wooing me with your song,
pulling me ever closer

Your delight is directed toward me
as it intoxicatingly draws me in. . .
I continue. . .
listening,
watching,
seeking

As you continue. . .
calling,
singing,
loving. . .
me

“The LORD your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy
Zephaniah 3:17

    Julie, as you walk this difficult journey of uncertainty with your dad, it is so good that you remember that God is in the midst and is calling out to you and giving you good gifts – like this beautiful photo that you have shared with us. That must have been such a gentle moment with God! Blessings!

    • Happy Monday Lynda–a quick word as I’ve got to get ready to head over to Atlanta. . .in the rain—ugh…
      Thank you so much for all of your prayerful support—yesterday, as I was out working in the yard, a heard the most insistent calling—truly pulling my attentions upward—when it dawned on me how God is insistently calling–beautifully calling—it’s all a matter of simply looking up 🙂
      Here’s to you having a little R and R until the next term begins!!
      Hugs to Canada–Julie
