A Glimpse of Beauty

God of Grace,

Everywhere we turn
we are flooded with
sights and sounds
of evil,
and the suffering
of the innocent.

And even we,
watching from places
of comfort and security
can be overwhelmed
by the darkness,
and begin to lose hope.

Then, we see a baby smile,
and the light breaks in,
reminding us that hope prevails
and that beauty surrounds us,
a gracious reminder of
the world that was,
and is to come.
