{faith} hope like a child

a fish jumps
the sky brings reflecting trees to life
ripples on glassy water
and snowy peaks reaching toward heaven

glimpses, nature's appetizers
just a taste of eternity
but really just enough beauty to keep our hearts astir
to send our eyes upward
to send a longing deep within

our insides complete
connected with creation
with the One who made this all

children on Christmas Eve
lit up eyes, filled with anticipation
so expectant, so tuned in
be like little children, He says

heaven in our hearts
thinking about it all the time
