Autumn Faith

the promise of fall

covered in blankets of dust

remembering rain


To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see.

Hebrews 11:1 (GNT)

Rainmaker


on the cloudless plains

the merciless sun beats down

yet the flowers hope


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

the frosty oak limbs

catching the first morning sun

point to rays of hope


But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.

Waiting

defoliated

winter shadows. still more snow.

dormant, not dead.


For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.

The Brave Rose


Sometimes, when it snows

I think about the brave rose

buried half alive.


Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life.

Proverbs 13:12

Seek and Find


As for hope, we find

much more reason to believe.

So we look for good.


”And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.” Romans 5:5

Robin in the Rain


keep keeping the faith

like a robin in the rain

waiting for a worm


To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of things we cannot see.

Pendulum

January

It is his first snow.

“Daddy, the ground is all gone!”

“Son, it will come back.”


June

What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.

Ecclesiastes 1:9; 3:11
