Everything to Nothing

When I go there, my soul feels how the sky looks at the break of dawn.
 And I'm lying on a bed of freshly fallen leaves.
  With a sigh, I sink into the colors of red, orange, yellow, and green.
   You're singing to me softly, in the key of D.
    I raise my voice to meet yours in a simple harmony.
     There is no more to desire.
      My heart's filled to the brim.
       And as I turn my face to yours,
        You pinch me.

A dog's life is one to desire.

God's Face

Yesterday I saw God's face twice. Once in a 70 year old woman, who told me I had a beautiful smile. This happened to come to me when I was feeling ugly and dark.

I saw God's face, again, later that same day. Just minutes after I received some startling and somber news, just after the tears had dried, face had de-puffed. A rather quiet resident(with whom I have zero relationship, have had zero conversations, and have barely made eye contact on more than one or two occasions) told me that I had lovely eyes. You know, eyes have been said to be the window to the soul. At this particular time, I was feeling so low and empty, but he still saw something in my eyes.

And today, I saw God's face. At 5:47 PM, as I was pouring myself a glass of water, the sun shone on me in such a way that a peace washed all of my sadness away.

It really is true. God is there when you need Him the most. Just a reminder.
