Beautiful God

by Jessica Jentink

Fireflies dance in a park
Like Christmas lights hung on the dark
Let’s knock, knock, knock on the night
Stars, come out and play with our sight
Who taught the loon how to sing?
Who thought of the sound fingers make on guitars
As they slide on the strings?
Is it true?
Is it you?

Open your eyes
See through the facade
Of the beauty we find
To the beautiful mind
Of a beautiful, beautiful God

Bakers draw flowers on cakes
Third graders cut paper snowflakes
Sometimes girls dot their “i”s with hearts
And I rather enjoy eating colorful poptarts
Why do I paint my fingernails?
Why do all children make castles of sand
With shovels and pales?
You’re to blame
You’re the same

Open your eyes
See through the facade
Of the beauty we find
To the beautiful mind
Of a beautiful, beautiful God
God saw all that He had made
And behold it was very good
As it should be
Let there be beauty
You are good
Good
