my attempt at blending the arts I cherish

under naked heaven

five cars roll into the front yard, parking in the most available patches of grass. around fifteen people then proceed to hug and reunite after a long week apart. the gathering is full of color, an array of laughter, and many voices rejoicing in friendship. all pile into the great gold truck and happily bump down a dusty road to a secret valley, a valley of freedom. with the evening light fading fast they circle around one boy furnished with a few pieces of music and a guitar.

they lift their voices. they raise their young arms to the vast, untouched sky. they lay their hearts down in holy surrender before their Maker. time flies under naked heaven as the stars come out winking and delight with those worshipping hearts. the one girl with short brown hair thanks her Father for the freedom to dance in the dark of the field, for the breeze that blows like music, for voices mingling together pushing up to the stars, for the pure joy to be loved by Jesus Christ, the King of Kings.

    Well said little lady, it truly was a wonderful season of worship and fellowship. Cool to see how God put that together. I enjoyed hearing the worship as I could. Dad
