More, much more

Cashmere Luxury Aran

Seeking nourishment
a bit to nibble
crumbs
instead You spread
upon my table
a lavish feast

no scant drops
of water
You poured
the sweetest of wines

I needed shelter
from winds, rain
prairie snow
four walls
to make a home
"not just that"
You said
by giving us
rooms to spare
and acres of green

Yes, I would have
rejoiced
in cottons, coarse wool
practical clothing
but You've chosen
the finest fibres
of cashmere
wrapping me soft
in the riches of Your love.

God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us. 
Ephesians 3:20 The Message

The words themselves suggest the softness of cashmere. Lovely.

"I would have rejoiced in cottons"

I liked that.
