To My Stained Glass Friends
Your life, a gift – by God’s own will,
Created to reflect the Light,
Was placed with perfect thought and skill
To mirror God’s amazing might.
Hope, Light, and Love through you He sheds,
While holding you in precious hands,
Illuminates what once was dead,
Shows those around you hopeful plans.
His wisdom manifold displayed
through you, my precious stained glass friend.
Your fragile frame let it not sway!
Perfection’s promised in the end.
“Father, thank You for the friends in my life
who continually lift my eyes to You.
Bless their obedience to You and continue
to use them and their gifts to point others to You.”
(Heidi Viars, 2013)
And we all, with unveiled face,
beholding the glory of the Lord,
are being transformed into the same image
from one degree of glory to another.
For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 3:18 ~ ESV
