Simple Beauties for Trying Days

by Jim Rapp

It must have been for days like these
            that God made:

            blue, cloud-filled skies,
            fields of goldenrod
            song birds
            newborn babies
            innocent children
            gatherings of friends
            plates laden with food
            lighthearted laughter
            the security of home
            the loyalty of family

It must have been for days like these

            when the spirit of anti-Christ
            is abroad in the land,
            evident even in the
            Body of Christ,
            that He reveals Himself
            in the innocent beauties
            that surround us,
            giving us hope.
