Welcome to the Grains Of Dirt blog. Grains Of Dirt is also the name we have chosen for our musical offerings. The name is inspired from Genesis 2:7 where God said He formed man from the dirt. He has breathed physical life into us and for those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, He has also breathed Spiritual life into us.
This blog is centered on discussing the things of God through the arts. In this blog I will post lyrics and poems I have written. But the discussions will certainly not be limited to what I have done. We will also discuss movies, music, art, and poetry in the context of its relation to the God of the Bible. Grains Of Dirt contains the initials GOD. This name is not meant to boast in myself as if to say I am God, but it is meant to glorify God in that by His grace and mercy he indwells me just as He indwells the name. For scripture does tell us that once we become "Born again," our bodies become the temple of the Holy Spirit of God.

Silence Breaks

Silence breaks, I'm distracted as usual in my thought
Closing in on darkness, I flee
You stand there so obvious in Your way
As I walk around you in mine
I look back, You look down
I turn towards You and see the genesis of a smile
Like dawn breaking over the horizon, I stare in awe, peppered with doubt
I step closer and feel your mist spray upon me as if I were near a great water fall
I shudder to think what another step could mean
As I question my senses,
You begin to speak words of clarity that pierce me like a spear
Yet comfort me like the blanket on my bed on a cold night.
You took out a tattered old picture that was crumpled up in Your pocket
You stopped and looked at it for what seemed be eternity
A single tear fell from your eye and landed on the photo
The tear drop looked like a crystal pebble magnifying the image below it
You stretched forth Your hand that held the photo balancing the tear drop upon it.
And You spoke, "This is my son"
You hesitated, holding back more tears
"He died" You said as Your voice cracked in the midst of those two words
I slowly took the picture from you forgeting the crystal pebble
As I felt the warm tear drop smear the photo with my thumb I was torn
Shocked at the statement You just made, yet regretful that the beautiful tear was gone
"Don't worry" You said, "I have more"
Somehow, I knew You did not just mean tears
I looked down at the photo, and was suprised to see only words
The words were vibrant and full of color
As I looked at the picture engulfed in confusion I composed a question in my mind
But You answered me before I could ask it
"Because I love You," Your smile returned
"And I want you and Him to be with me for eternity"
