The blue-violet blooms along the fence first caught my eye,
And milk-white blossoms splattered the green weeds around them.
I found a bunch of bright golden black-eyed Susans nearby.
And look! A puff of pink wild roses.
Fragrant white-crowned yarrow marches beside the road
While tumbling water clatters through the rocky roadside ditch.
Thank You, Lord, for these beauties attending my morning walk
On this cloudy day in June.
This visual feast—Your gift to me—eases my weariness from yesterday’s disappointments.
My faltering faith leaps to life again as I remember Your presence and love.
All praise and thanks belong to You, God.
Let heaven and earth, all people and all creation give
Glory and honor to You, O Lord our God! Amen.
