These Summer Days

These summer days
They slip away
Before you know it
Fall leaves arrayed
Beneath our feet
The earth grows cold
And here comes winter
Ever bold
‘Tis the truth
Since times old
Seasons change
There’s sun
There’s snow

But God’s love won’t let us go
These winter days
Burst into spring
And once again we’ll learn to sing
These summer days
Aren’t here to stay
So cherish them in every way
For the gift they are
Today

The Mountainside

Many have traveled this twisting road
Up the mountainside
Some looked back
Far too soon
Lost the dream
Lost the view
Some persevered
Though the woods grew thick
They learned this lesson
And promise it’s true

Another turn
Or maybe two
And you’ll see
Hope
In front of you

Photo Challenge (Day 1)

Thank you to Miss Squid once again for another fun blog nomination! This one is the “Photo Challenge,” and there will be five days with a new theme each day. The rules are…

1) the photo must be taken the day of the post
2) it must be an original photo

I’ve kept this blog strictly text-oriented, but I told Miss Squid that I would “break the rules” this time. 🙂 After all, it’s good to have a change. I don’t have a fancy camera–just my family’s point-and-shoot–but I love the artistic side of photography.

Today’s word is “intricate” 

There just happened to be a rain storm this afternoon, leaving the grass glittering with droplets of this much needed gift from above (we’ve had a drought here in Alabama). And that is where I discovered this lovely white clover. Yahweh designed even the weeds to be intricate and beautiful. His Creation amazes me.

“The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Isaiah 40:8

{P.s. This song was playing as I was writing this post–pretty fitting.}
