Who first patterned the fire’s dance?
Each flickering fall captures your glance
Not simple molecules as some like to say
No way such beauty could be randomly displayed
The diaphanous patterns were crafted by loving hands
It was a thoughtful Creator who designed fire’s dance
Who painted the sunset in the sky?
No paintbrush I know could reach that high
Swirls of pink, purple, red, and gold
Did not come by chance as I’ve been told
Rather a masterful God with an artist’s eye
Painted those colors in the sky
Who gave the mockingbird a voice to sing?
A voice to herald the new morning
There is no such thing as one-size-fits-all
When it comes to the notes in each bird call
Only a skilled composer could ever bring
Musical harmony to the song His birds sing
Who dressed the trees in their colored robes?
Crimson leaves form regal clothes
Each leaf different, yet perfectly shaped
Impossible to spontaneously generate
Only the expert Tailor knows how to sew
Individual leaves into elegant robes
Who graced the mind with intelligent thought?
Chance would have had us only think as we’re taught
Our minds did not come by an impersonal force
They were not made from an unknowable source
Our Father in heaven carefully wrought
The vital facet of intelligent thought

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19 NIV)
I check my microphone one last time, listening through the double doors for my queue lines. I clench the bag in my hands that will be used during the scene, making sure I’ve got everything, sending up a silent prayer to God for help. Suddenly I hear it—my queue!
Instantly I throw open the door and come running through the audience, hearing my laughter echo loudly across the speakers. I’m almost through the auditorium and at the last row of seats before the stage when… I fall. One of those brilliant ‘face-eats-carpet’ moments.
My bag of props goes sprawling before me. I don’t even have time to feel embarrassed by how far my skirt probably flew up! Grabbing everything I possibly could, I arrive on stage late, improvising a new entrance before getting into place for the dance number and song.
Half way through the music I notice…I can’t move my hand. Worse than that, with every movement I’m forced to make, excruciating pain shoots through my fingers and wrist.
I later found out that I’d snapped the tendon in my hand when I fell. True, God didn’t spare me the pain. Instead, He gave me the strength and comfort I needed to make it through till curtain call.
God doesn’t promise us lives without pain, but He will be there every step of the way, strengthening and encouraging us till that moment when the final curtain falls and we go to be with Him in paradise.
Christine grew up in the windowless basement of her grandparent’s house and has thus been fondly nicknamed “The vampire in a box” by her friends. She has a strong affinity for sarcasm, shiny purple things, and random, useless information that “normal people probably wouldn’t care about.” She likes to sing, act, draw, write, read, and make fun of Prince Charming in her spare time. Some of her epic skills include: surviving a piano being dropped on her, carrying on a five hour conversation with a wall, and making a grilled cheese sandwich spontaneously explode. (read more…)
