It was just before daybreak - I saw Him
as a porthole broke open in space
It amazed me to view wondrous splendor
of the beauty of Jesus Christ's face
We were riding along in our Chevy
peering out of our window to see
if the clouds looked like shapes
in imagined displays of an artist
with brushstrokes that played.
that no clouds were present
we turned back to attempt to amuse
ourselves in our boredom of travel
with some games on our laps
we could choose...
then I saw on the floor my
new camera...that I'd purchased
the last time we shopped...
and I popped in the film...
it was loaded....
to capture the views when we stopped.
"Look at THAT"
my good friend said....ASTOUNDED
"WOW!!! it seems
like HE'S LOOKING AT ME!"
I peered out of the window
attempting to view
what my friend seemed
he surely could see!
The bright blue sky
as HE peered through
a fluffy white cloud....
HIS tender eyes
looked bright and loving
and HIS sweet smile
was seemingly proud!
HIS kind face was tender and gentle
as HE looked down through the skies
and we knew beyond
a shadow of doubt...
that it HAD to be JESUS CHRIST!
It must have been a miracle...
that revealed HIS search that day
for we were aware...
that the Savior was there
and we hoped....
HE WAS ON HIS WAY!
I tried hard to take a picture
to be able to fully record...
the view in the air
until I...became aware
that it wasn't the will of the Lord!
It was printed ...
in my MIND FOREVER....
No endeavor could wipe it away
Now I'll seek HIS return....
as I watch skies and yearn
to view HIS FACE...
as I did...that day!
I'll stay TRUE BLUE
so I won't...stray away!
The face of the LORD
was soooo peaceful
and His eyes...
full of wonderful LOVE
His compassion and mercy
we visibly saw...
as HE looked through
the sky....from above
No one knew...
why HE came to observe us
but in FEAR...
my friend tried..
to hide away
as the eyes of the LORD
scanned the earth to reward
those with FAITH
that HE'S promised...will PAY!
True believers were
reminded that day...
WHY we'll STAY on
HIS STRAIGHT...NARROW WAY!
All the rest of my memories faded
after seeing HIS FACE in the skies
for I'll NEVER FORGET
that HE'S near me...
and HE'S loving, and caring and wise!
My ALMIGHTY LORD GOD...
all we need...and HE SEES
ALL our good deeds HE'LL be
from HIS VIEW...through the sky!

moon and stars. On the earth, nations

heavenly bodies will be shaken.
27 At that time they will see the
Son of Man coming in a cloud with
power and great glory.
28 When these things begin to take place,
stand up and lift up your heads,
because your redemption is drawing near."

gaze at the clouds so high above you.

or what does he receive from your hand?

O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
The LORD detests the thoughts of the wicked,
but those of the pure are pleasing to him.
Proverbs 16:7 When a man's ways are pleasing to the LORD,
he makes even his enemies live at peace with him.
