TOWARD HIGHER GROUND
Our children laughing gleefully
My wife baking delicious pies
Our cat and dog playing together
like a couple of kids...
These are moments and memories
we noticed with joy on our journey
toward Higher Ground.
The excitement of the changing seasons
The smell of freshly mowed grass and
fresh, new tulip buds
These we have experienced in our walk
upward toward Higher Ground.
A quiet afternoon breeze
Horses naying in the fields
Birds singing in the trees
For the simple enjoyments of life and
the renewing of our wearied spirits,
we give Thee thanks, O Lord
And, may thou help us as we continune
to travel...toward Higher Ground.
