The Color of Grace

What is the color of grace?

It is white like a winter snow

covering an unkept autumn lawn.

It coats the ground and keeps

the tender shoots of hope insulated

until the warmer breezes blow again

to awaken groggy dreams.

What is the color of grace?

It is green like the blades of grass in the spring

that bend beneath my feet.

Blades that form the path I am to take

that lead me to where I am to be –

to become who I am to be.

What is the color of grace?

It is as blue as the eyes of my children

who constantly remind me of my great need

of something more than I am –

pointing me beyond myself to a greater purpose –

a higher calling.

What is the color of grace?
red spatter

It is crimson as it flows down the wooden planks,

the rusty nails…splattering to the ground…

to the unkept lawn of my heart…

in need of direction and purpose,

acceptance and freedom.

When my eyes rest upon these colors,

may they stir a remembrance in me

that I already possess what I am looking for –

through grace.
