    26th March 2017 – The Joy of Yellow

    26th March 2017 – The Joy of Yellow
    March 24, 2017 Judith Simms

    Yellow is the colour of this time of year

    Yellow daffodils,

    Primroses, early cowslips

    If the weather is kind,

    Celandines with their super shiny stars,

    Dandelions frolicking in the fields and waysides

     

    Yellow, yellow, yellow!

     

    Sunbeams –

    Light dancing, fracturing into tiny rainbows

    The fresh bright light of the sun

    Reaching the spring equinox

    And

    Laughingly climbing higher into the heavens.

     

    Our hearts sing praise

    We lift them up

    Maybe suppressing the urge to dance

    To shout and sing,

    Yet bursting with the joy of light and love.

     

    Joyful, dancing God

    We join with you

    in celebration

    Celebration of the wonder of the world

    The world you have sung into being.

    You spoke and there it was

    Light!

    Form!

    Life!

     

    We hear your voice

    Through brook and birdsong,

    Wind whispering through leaves,

    The rush of rain before it strikes the ground.

    We catch your scent

    In fresh air,

    In blossoms bursting forth

    In clear, clean water bubbling ecstatically

    Over smoothed pebbles,

    In freshly turned earth

    And warmth of sun

    On rock and wall,

    In salt spray

    And crushed grass.

     

    Joyously

    Wonderingly

    Wordlessly

    We praise you!

    Accept our wonder and our praise

     

    Amen.
