BEAUTY

Spring is a lovely time of the year! It brings to my heart much cheer! As beautiful flowers appear and birds are singing, It brings music to my ear. I see the butterfly dancing around Beneath my feet of green grass on the ground. All these things of beauty cannot compare, To what I see when I look at the dogwood tree. Standing There! As I stand looking upon this tree, a sense of sadness comes over me. Its white blossoms represents a sense of purity. I reach and pull blossom from this tree. A sense of sadness comes over me. As I look, I can see in the middle a crown of thorns. At the edge, a rust of bloodstain that represents the blood Jesus shed for me. Thank you God! For all the beauty, I see. Most of all I thank Jesus for dying on the cross that I might be free. Someday I can be in Heaven, and the beauty I see here, Will not compare with the beauty I will see up there.
