Change


Sturdy wild flowers.

Do you ever contemplate

how soon comes the fall?


“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”– 2 Corinthians 4:16 (NIV)

Life is Fragile

thick smoke on the hill

means the wildfires rage unseen

and so too in life


All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.

Isaiah 40:6,8

God gives each of us colors

paint earth with flowers!


Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

The lane to the lake

Gratitude


a stained glass window

has no power of its own

yet smiles in the sun.


Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.

Stretch, or Snap?

some are elastic

others are made of plastic

will we stretch, or snap?


If you falter in a time of trouble, how small is your strength!

Remember


Warm breeze. Leaves whisper.

I remember long ago

one firefly night.
