The Dawning

            --Wanda Hartley Butts 9/20/2012


We must not forget that in a busy world,

where God is, we are not lost in the crowd:

individually precious and separately sought,

in the love of Jesus,  we each stand alone.

One by one found, drawn, and humbled

till the day breaks and the shadows flee.


We craved for bread, but were given a stone.

How many a human in that state of distress,

have cast The Word to the winds of heaven?

But, the eunuch still did seek, read, and study

until offered the illuminating light of Christ

and good hope through grace there in the desert.


At that moment when everything seemed vain,

the footsteps of the dawn rode over the hills.
