Witnessing a Foretaste

Looking outside from the kitchen table offers a view each morning of how our Lord presents each day as a precious gift.  Here is a mini sonnet which witnesses a foretaste of the feast to come.

Viewing the early morning

Welcoming each libation

Peering from kitchen’s window

Witnessing God’s creation


Growing greener, grass below

Blooming, flowers spelling love

Witnessing creative hands

Working each day from above


Taking in this peaceful scene

Witnessing each day’s foretaste

Blessing each feast, more to come

Tasting moments, without haste


Witnessing God’s daily Grace

Making life a happy place

From Lutheran Communion liturgy, Christ’s people sing:  “Grace our table with Your presence, and give us a foretaste of the Feast to come.”

    • Pat, I always appreciate your sharing of any of my posts. I will continue to post 2-3 Christian-themed poems each week. I find special connections with your posts, and I will look forward to more to sample.
