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.

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)

a blustery day

with windy rain on the way

sweet spring, have you sprung?


Swim Again

all the thirsty geese

beside the frozen up creek

hurry up and wait

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.

Jesus – Matthew 5:6 (NIV)

Strong Enough to Bend

The limber willow

does not argue with the wind

and yet it survives.

Inspired by a conversation between Master Khan and his Disciple Cain, on the TV show Kung Fu.

Be true to yourself.

Even when it is broken,

you live from the heart.

You’re already doing, you’re always doing, what’s in your heart. You can’t get away from your heart.
