Silence grows golden until enriched
by Phoebe’s birdsong calling to humming grasshoppers.
And fluorescent smudges streak the sky while He whispers,
“I’ve missed you.”
And I wish I knew
I mean really knew
for certain His voice
Then looking up, I see it!
a momentary rainbow
just for me
for there is no one else to enjoy it.
And I remember the promise;
His promise to me.
And I wonder, do I dare?
Do I dare believe that I’ve heard Him?
Grateful with Ann
#1 – I’m thankful for the 30 second rainbow my Father put in the sky this morning. It came just seconds after He whispered, “I’ve missed you daughter.” Just like a kiss on the cheek.
#2 – Giving thanks for the lonely Phoebe bird calling into the quiet morning.
#3 – Grateful for the sore muscles I have from helping with the church garage sale.

I need to get some photos scanned in, I have a number of gorgeous sunset shots with the Methodist church steeple in the foreground. If I recall, one with a corona of colour seemingly centered on the steeple itself.
Beautiful words, beautiful shots, wonderful thoughts!
It would be fun to see some of your photos! Thanks, dear reader!
I feel that way sometimes too – Do I dare believe that I just had a personal encounter with God? But I’ve started searching more for God in the every day (thanks to Ann) I’ve become much more comfortable with saying, “Yes!” and “Thank you, God, for that glimpse of you.” Beautiful photo.
Visiting from Hear It/Use It.
Ann has reminded so many of us to look for the beauty in every moment… Thanks for visiting!! I’m looking forward to visiting your blog as well!
“Do I dare believe that I’ve heard Him?” Believe, as in…. convinced? Perhaps you’ve found your meaning? Are we yet…..convinced? And if we were truly convinced, “How would we then live?” , as Francis Schaffer reminds us. Corporately as His Body and individually as the smallest units of cells that make up that Body….with different functions and gifts from Him, different personalities, differing strengths and weaknesses…we give our Master our every day lives. Each hopefully believing….that we’ve heard from Him, heard His voice…and then live our lives in ways to please this One we love so dearly. Lovely words that made my heart soar this morning. Thank you, precious daughter.
I’ll have to give that some thought…perhaps I have stumbled upon something here… I love you.
Beautiful words about our beautiful God. I love the way he speaks to us through creation. Great post!
Thanks Christina! i always enjoy your writing as well!
What a beautiful sky! Something so special about looking up and reading Him there. A lovely post.
Thank you! Te sky is the most beautiful cathedral dome in the world!
Love the picture, love the words, love the grace. Thanks for taking the time to share your “kiss on the cheek” from the Father. Blessings!
Thanks for visiting! The riches of His love are enormous!
Wow, that sky sucked me in! The entire post transpired the peace that only He can give.
Beautiful in so many ways.
Thanks Beth! I only have a phone for a camera, so it really didn’t capture the moment. I loved your pictures on your post!
Thanks – I don’t take as many photos with my good camera as much as I should because my camera phone, although poor quality, is oh soooo convenient!!!
I know this picture is taken with my camera phone, because I don’t have a camera. A real camera is on my list… 🙂
Thanks for stopping by….I love how being thankful…seeing the graces…opens us up to how He comes…speaks to us in such simple sometimes subtle ways…but with such beauty and assurance of His kiss of Love.
Gratefulness is a gateway to God’s goodness…How’s that for alliteration?
HE LOVES YOU!!!!!
I know!! Isn’t it unfathomably exciting?
This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing a ‘God moment’ that assures us we are in the right place at the right time and nothing else matters too much. Wonderful!
Elizabeth, Thanks for stopping by again! Nothing else does matter in moments like those. I’m trying to have more of those moments.
I wonder how many times the Lord has spoken to me and I was unable to distinguish it from my own voice or the voices around me. It’s so nice to have those clear-cut times when we know it is him!
I love that too, Lisa. I think if I slow down a little I might notice that He is speaking to me more than I thought.
Oh, my prayer is that you would believe that you have heard Him with every single fiber of your being. To know His voice, to hear Him being active and alive within us and with us — the power that that brings to our lives!
what a lovely post…happy to see you…smiles…and daring to believe it…yes i think so and what a life it can be…
…and it’s up to us, don’t you think? to recognize that wonderful life?
That’s just gorgeous. And, of course, it was just for you! He gives so many good gifts.
It blows my mind that He would put a rainbow in the sky just for me.
Beautiful! I love moments like that. What a blessing.
Me too! Hope you have one really soon.
Fluorescent smudge streak the sky. Yes, when you can paint with words, you have heard Him. Thank you. Lovely.
Thank you for seeing such an artist in me…I paint with words? I don’t remember the last time I’ve had such a compliment.
We all need to have our spiritual ears and eyes open to Him as you have. Make no mistake, you’ve heard His voice. You’ve seen His handiwork!
Thanks messy! He certainly is there, we just need to use the senses He’s given us to see Him.
God gave me a rainbow once, too! Thanks for helping me remember.
So glad I could remind you of a special moment with your Lord!
Dont you just love that when God awes us – so personally? Thanks for sharing!
I do! It makes me feel worth His pursuit.
I’ve always wondered more about the times God spoke and I wasn’t listening. I think He is always speaking to us, always in communion with our heart, always actively pursuing us and conversing with us…..it is up to us to have ears to hear, eyes to see, a heart to listen.
The start to your day was a beautiful end to mine-
What a lovely thought…the start of your day…Thank you.
I love this: He showers gifts upon us when He misses us rather than holding back!
He pursues us!
oh friend, yes… he does these things for us. isn’t it incredible? xo
He is the author of incredible!
Learning to discern between His voice and mine – I am trying. What a blessing when His voice is punctuated by something like a rainbow!
I know! I am so thankful for a confirmation every once in a while.
