A Little Poem About Grace

Someone on twitter sent out a prompt to use Emily Dickinson's poem "Hope is the thing with feathers" as a prompt, but to change the poem to something else: "_____is the thing with _____." I didn't quite follow instructions (which I didn't realize until later!) but at least I tried!

I loved the prompt and had fun trying to put some words to God's grace--it really is indescribable to me. If you give this prompt a try, please leave your poem in the comments, or send me an e-mail--I would love to see it!

Grace Is the thing that flows down the mountainside--

Bringing life and beauty to every flowering thing.

Grace is the thing that flows down the weathered cheek--

Bringing life and healing to a prodigal child.

Grace is the thing that flows down His face, Down His side--

Bringing life to my dry heart and healing to my soul.
