Waters

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness,

The world and those who dwell therein.

For He has founded it upon the seas,

And established it upon the waters.

Psalm 24:1-2

Eddies formed along a rocky river bank;
swirling in steady circles to shape winsome whirlpools whirling in flowing currents.

A few spun ever so slowly, in hopes of breaking current. Yet, their strength too weak to break the powerful flow of river waters.

Others took a different approach twirling with such enthusiasm, eroding the existing river bank and leaving destruction behind.

I studied one eddy, eluding my view. It was humble in spirit, diligent in duty, a treasure of truth working effortlessly with the river.

If I am truly established in God and firmly grounded in His Word should I not be like this eddy? Humble, diligent and walking in truth?

His Call

He calls and repeats his call,
it travels on the tepid breeze,
encircles the weary woodland,
rises up to crafty cumulus clouds,
trails passed each blade of grass
and falls into empty, murky marsh.

He waits and waits even longer,
his tune falls to silent, vacant realms
knowing her image trails in his mind,
lifts his head and rises high to listening,
he puffs his wings, encircles the land,
will travel far to find what he has lost.

As for the song bird,
he lovingly lingers long;
seeks what he has lost.

“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

Romans 8:28

A Vine

What is a branch without a leaf,
a lovely, lush, living gem of green?
Where does the vine first connect
beneath the dark, deep, dim earth?
When does the branch give birth
to tender bud, to juicy fruit, to life?
Why does the branch bare badly;
it has dried and is no longer rooted.

Without sturdy roots,
a branch becomes just tinder;
embers in the fire.

P. Wolf; poet & author

“I am the vine, you are the branches; the one who remains in Me, and I in him bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

Easter Morning: a Resurrection

Months have passed like dawn and dusk,
the year the world was unable to join
to celebrate an event which changed
history; not just history but one’s eternity.

As morning sun rises in warm eastern sky,
bird songs echo in the budding woodland,
the air is vibrant with life as if a new born
has been birthed; but it’s not this moment

to wonder of. What about one’s eternity?
There was a year the world did not celebrate Christ’s coming forth from the tomb; as isolation locked loved ones from us.

I can’t help but wonder of being isolated from our Redeemer; what a cruel eternity to enter into when so much more is available to those who are willing to accept Christ as Savior!

“I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.”

Philippians 3:10

Listening

We just muddle through
since some roads have no escape;
to which two eyes learn.

Hidden deep within the underbrush 
two ears and one tail steadily stares
studying its options for quick escape.

Buried deep down within the heart,
too tall a tale privately told for
learning of lessons with laughter.

Concealed deep, an earthly secret
to which we’re drawn listening and
mastering from our puzzling past.

Hidden deep within the underbrush
two ears and one tail steadily stares
studying its options for quick escape.

“ I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You.”

Job 42:5

A rabbit will need a thicker coat in the winter than in the summer. Also, a rabbit’s fur may change color for its protection. This is more common in wild than domestic animals, but it applies to all rabbits. It’s a natural reaction to light exposure

During the winter, rabbits take in more wood-based food sources, such as tree bark, twigs, and conifer needles. Rabbits don’t hibernate, so they dig holes or find warm, closed-in spaces, in hollow logs, rock piles, and brush piles. But they don’t just eat plants.Dec

Food isn’t the only thing a rabbit has to be particularly concerned about during winter, however. The loss of vegetation density means predators can spot their prey much more easily. In order to survive, rabbits must find places where they can both eat and hide from predators.
