We serve a mighty God

I am so full of joy. I happened to pass a computer with internet access, and discovered via email that one of our (very beloved by me) men had suffered a stroke. When I called his home, I spoke to his son and found out that the magic after-stroke drug had been given to him, and he's much much better!

And, to top it off, the leaders for the retreat have given me permission to take afternoons to study, read, and write. I don't know if God had anything to do with their answer, but I know God got me to ask.

We serve a mighty, and very thoughtful, God.

A study of Sun Rays (Crespuscular)

Running to find the end of the rainbow.

Running to find that shaft glory--to be bathed in light.

Bearing the soul to the divine.

Seeking rest, surcease and cleansing all at once.

Faith like a waterfall--full, abundant and never ceasing.

Faith like a dream.

Steadfast like a rock among the rapids.

Quickly before the moment has passed

Look into the water and see the gathering malestrom in the deep.

Faith like a million droplets in a summer storm.

Take delight in the rain.

Move and have your being in it.

"Be still and know that I am God."
