God's Been Kind

I know, not only I, have been blessed with a star filled sky
The nights where the dark finds such calmness before our eyes
You can find black for miles just edged in blue
Hanging high overhead for me and you...

I know, not only I, have been touched by soothing winds and rain
And, I know through each season you'll find they never change
And, how the sun it can shine even through it all
Leaving rainbows, his promise, we will never fall...

God, he has been kind, so kind, most everyday
I find myself praying the winds never go away
I'm often reminded of what a strong pair of hands can do
When I found in his heart, the rain, brought me you...

Now I fall to my knees, in thoughts of you, every single time it rains
And, smile to the wonder, I was given, in the middle of my pain
God's been kind to me when I asked for love
He gave me more, your heart, than I was ever deserving of...

God's been kind, you see, with all his heart
Cause he gives us the wind to feel each other even miles apart
He gives the warmest winds to show us how it could feel in each others arm together
And, the cool to show the feeling of cold so we'll hold on forever...

So, I never doubt what any view is ever for
Cause, I know God's intended for me to see much more
God's been so kind to me for the chance to be with you some night
And, lie together, under his starry blanket, and hold on tight...

In the midst of rain he's given us a way to feel pure and new
That his waters cleanse the soul our whole life through
And, when wetness find us as the day is done
He knows exactly when he must send down the sun...

God's been kind and this I know
It's his every season that even more he'll show
So, I will wait and see all tomorrows views
How God's been beyond kind to me... to wake loving you...

Another beauty.  Great flow and an abundance of passion with room to spare.  Loved the flow and thought process in this as I did the wisdom and restraint.

Saunni....
          You put such feeling into your
  writing.....it's a pleasure to read.
  My favorite line was:

  "..he gives us the wind to feel each
     other even miles apart.."

            That is truly beautiful...


My heart is an open book
....take a look....
