Cross

Cross

With a willing spirit,
Lift that burden, heavy and coarse,
For with its drawing of our blood, our sap,
New life begins!
Salvation wrought through
The Cross.
~ D.F.

“Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.”
Luke 14:27

Beyond The Trees

Beyond The Trees

As with the morning dew,
Glimmering in the sun,
Until the earth, a kiss,
We sink, yet rise
High, beyond the trees.
~ D.F.

*************

“For the whole world before you is as the least grain of the balance, and as a drop of the morning dew, that falls down upon the earth:

But you have mercy upon all, because you can do all things, and overlook the sins of men for the sake of repentance.”
~ Wisdom 11:22-23

Undaunted

Undaunted

See how undaunted this tree seems to be despite having lost one of its main branches.

So too, let not physical trials and bodily harm break down our spirit but rather, prompt it to a ripe and strong maturity.

~ D.F.

Two by Two

Two by Two

Because the journey in faith and through life cannot be done alone.

“Of the clean animals and the unclean, of the birds, and of everything that crawls on the ground,
two by two, male and female came to Noah into the ark, just as God had commanded him.”

Genesis 7: 8-9
