Father—Creation that you’ve made!

Spring’s sweet buds, and Summer’s glade;

Pumpkin’s orange in Fall’s bright pallet,

Forest’s sleep ‘neath Winter’s mallet…


Your seasons teach me lessons stern;

Lessons that, I needs, must learn;

That all year ’round — these changes show,

I must change if I’m to grow!


1308a7b0e1add324fa76cc5904cb37a9Why do I fight it? Fists clenched tight…

Why resist with all my might?

…with each new season in my life,

Relentless Change’s pruning knife?


Cutting away the worn, with cost,

And though I weep at what I’ve lost;

Change will not yeild — but cutting still,

Bids me swallow this bitter-pill…


‘Tis not the death of Heaven’s dream…492c7237fbdcbe72b996796e66a3ee92

‘Tis not The Father’s heartless scheme!

But Tender Wisdom from above,

Calling him Home…

Because — he’s Loved!



And so these tears — this Season’s end…

This bitter loss of Beloved Friend;

I will accept because I know,

Change must come… and you must go…

But never forget, how we loved you so!

Waiting For What?

l-132175I don’t know about you dear reader, but for me, waiting always seems easier if I know what I’m waiting for. If I know what to search my horizon for each day, then I can wait with a least some composure and patience.

How about you?

I mean, think about it. Isn’t waiting a little easier if you can scan the horizon of your life for something specific?

My most difficult waiting happens when I am waiting “in the dark.”

When my waiting is just for “the next thing.” Whatever that is? Then my waiting tends to become restless.

I begin to pace in my restricted place.

I sense change coming, but I’m not sure what kind of change.

I wonder, “Will I like this? Can I handle it? Will this thing I’m waiting for, make my life better, or swamp my boat?”

I don’t know, maybe I’m the only one who feels this way.

(Probably not.)

Bet this kind of restless-waiting is as common as dirt.

Thanks to you Habakkuk, your statement for today really helps. Especially the part where God says:

⦁ The things He plans won’t happen right away
⦁ Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches for fulfillment
⦁ Don’t despair… be patient… They won’t be overdue a single day!

I may not know what is in tomorrow, but I know who holds all my tomorrow’s in His plan.

That calms my restlessness.

(A little.)

The DREAM~MAKER’S Promise:

For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But in the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3Habakkuk 2:3
English: World English Bible - WEB

3 For the vision is yet for the appointed time, and it hurries toward the end, and won’t prove false. Though it takes time, wait for it; because it will surely come. It won’t delay.

A Caterpillar’s Prayer:

Everywhere I look, everything I read, everyone I listen to, seems to be saying the same thing: Delay is not denial. God, why don’t I learn? Why don’t I change? In my head, I know that waiting on You and Your plan is the smartest thing anyone can do… so why is it, that doing the “smart” thing… hurts. so. darn. much?
