fireworks explode in a summer’s sky

where am I ?

catching fireflies on the 4th of July.

It’s just so easy to get caught up in the flash and the power of it all

and I do it every year.

we arch our necks

and ooh and aah

but always come back to the wonder of those tiny lights sailing over summer lawns.

We often miss the smaller things

because we are overwhelmed by the bigger things.

When Jesus knelt to write in the sand

the crowd was so curious as to his

judgement on the sinful woman.

But wouldn’t it have been more interesting

to know what he was writing?

catching fireflies in the 4th of July.

Everyone’s chasing a political football

running down a field towards a goal.

Then there’s those of us

who shuffle thru fields of grass

catching fireflies on the 4th of July,

So often I overlook the little things

cause this world can be such a great big place

Even Noah’s working hard, hammering away,

trying to follow construction plans while the storm clouds gather

Do you think he even looked up as the first drops fell,

as the winds howled and the people ran?

or was he so taken by the gentle care shown as the door was sealed.

Fireworks explode in a summer’s sky

where am I?

catching fireflies on the 4th of July.
