TOWARD HIGHER GROUND
Our children laughing gleefully
Our wife baking delicious pies
Our cats and dogs playing together
like a couple of kids...
These are moment we have noticed
during our journey...toward Higher Ground.
The excitement of the changing seasons
The smell of freshly mowed grass and
We have experienced these moments in
our walk upward... toward Higher Ground.
A quiet afternoon breeze
Crickets chirping in the fields
Birds chirping in the trees...
For the simple enjoyments of life and
the renewing of our wearied spirits,
we give Thee thanks, O Lord...
And, may we always travel...
toward Higher Ground.
