Hiking along

face down

concentrating on dirt








I whisper,

“I love You, Lord”


I hear in my head,

“I’m shouting my love for you”


Take a breath in

eyes off of dirt

look up

and see a love display from God


a shout from God!


An “I love you”

from my Father


and my heart is stirred

and my eyes light up

and I’m drawn in

by His enveloping love


Everyone talks about you whispering, Lord,

and You do,

but sometimes you shout

because you love your children

so much


I think You shout a lot

and we are not listening enough


So I’m hoping to do better

and keep my eyes off of dirt

looking up

listening for whispers

and shouts

of Divine Love.
