The Bridge of Love ~by Audrey Yeager

The night sky beckons
Through an open window
The wispy curtains flutter
To and fro
And I stand Big-eyed and breathless Almost seeing God Before such hurting sweetness Glittering diamond shards Twinkle from infinity And I dare to dream of more, A promised God-made city How deeply within our hearts Is this magnetic yearning And man has known it In all Earth's troubled turnings A pulling and an urging To join with what's been lost To touch at last, the Father's hand We cry, " what is the cost?" The requirement was appalling And no one had the price Except the Man from Heaven The God-man, Jesus Christ He paid with love-filled pain Underneath the scourge and nails He bowed His head and lifted us And tore the temple veil He alone is worthy And why He loved me , I don't know He took my sin while sinless, And let it bring Him low Now the night sky hangs above Just as it was before And I know the Father listens Because of what my Jesus bore by Audrey Yeager ( written not long after salvation)
~Thank-you Audrey for allowing me to publish your beautiful, heart's song in poetry!~

Thank you Audrey and Kathy - we were talking last night about heaven - our longing for at last being home. We will all enjoy hearng one another's stories and not be limited by time or location.
