Fresh powder falls On an Indian sand world In this desert hiding place, Where skinny pines meet up With turning lagoons and sandstone walls. As you journey through the canyons An unmolested world begins to speak, And you begin to see, as if from the dust, An all-seeing eye brings to light An unseen world. A Light That Passes By is a masterful collection of poetry that draws on nature, politics, and spirituality as subjects for reflection. Through her poetry, author Jenny Tibbetts shares her inexplicable desire to feel closer to her Savior Jesus Christ. Her writing packs a powerful message of virtue and truth and describes Jesus as the greatest friend we shall ever have. These poems speak of wonder at the miraculous handiwork of God the creator and express an insatiable love for the bounty and beauty of nature. Tibbetts' writing is influenced by a deep reverence and respect for the country she lives in and is filled with a spirit of passion and patriotism. A Light That Passes By beautifully and boldly comments on some of the current issues of our day, appealing to the spiritual actualities of God within all things. Jenny Tibbetts holds nothing back from the light of the truth and will inspire readers to greater heights of awareness.
