 Language of Enchantment


Life’s Coal Black Balloon
The morning began
With a coal black balloon.
It floated right by
 Her created cocoon.
She wanted no part
 Of the dark dreary skies.
For hadn’t the Lord
Put a Light in her eyes?
Memories flashed
Of her mirrored in black.
But she no longer kept
That dress on the rack.

She’d walked away from
That life long ago.
For hadn’t she been
Washed whiter than snow?

 No past could be present…
 Her future was bright!
She’d already traded
The wrong for the right.

 She’d put on salvation
And threw off the sin
For didn’t the promise
Already begin?

She picked up her Bible
For comfort and strength.
God showed her a rainbow…
Humongous in length!

It stretched from her cradle
To her dwelling’s door…
A sign she was safe
      In His care ever more

Yes, life holds some storms
But her Son was shining…
For in her dark sky
Was His silver lining.

  Dismissing the memory
 Disregarding the pain…
She ran to the street
To dance in the rain!

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new
2 Corthinians 5:17 


 I set My rainbow in a cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant [promise] between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh."
Genesis 9:13
