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!

Psalm 24:10 (NIV)


Warm breeze. Leaves whisper.

I remember long ago

one firefly night.

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

On the Scale

Does bad outweigh good

or is there more good than bad?

Either way, God wins.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28

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.

Haiku happiness

Seeker, or Sought?

Friend, look for the good.

It will come and rest on you

like a butterfly.

Whoever seeks good finds favor, but evil comes to one who searches for it. – Proverbs 11:27 (NIV)
