Dryness came upon the land
Rain withheld short of water
Outside hot temp of two zero
Underground and high plateau
GOD always hears the praying
Hé sent clouds to answer with
Tomorrow we find hope at last

You and the Eclipse

to Greg


Watch as the moon makes a sliver of the sun.  You can almost see it move. It put a blind spot on the surface. Solar experience. Totality somewhere. But you would not travel to the path of totality. You who doesn’t like lines, traffic or the hype. Now totality comes in another place and you are content with just a sliver of the moment.

So it never got dark, it never made that perfect circle of promised intervention or made the stars shine in the day. And now a half disc lowers itself towards the east horizon and I watch and wait for the glorious totality of the sun.

Can this be random
When heavens and earth align
Or a great design?

You and the Eclipse

The Size of Faith

And He said unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?     Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.          Matthew 8:26 ERV

What size is faith?

Is it small like the disciples

who cried out in the storm drenched boat

thinking they would die,

“LORD are you trying to kill us?

Save us from this storm.”

Or is it medium size like Jonah

who pleaded with men

“Throw me overboard!” to calm the sea

Jonah who had to be taken under

drowned at the foot of Mt Carmel

washed up on the shore to save Ninevah

Or is it large like Jesus

who became man

spoke of a kingdom that was other of this world

obedient to the end

cried out in a loud voice

“Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.”
