POEM BY HELEN STEINER RICE


                                          FAITH FOR DARK DAYS
When dark days come--and they come to us all--
     We feel so helpless and lost and small.
We cannot fathom the reason why,
     And it is futile for us to try
To find the answer, the reason or cause,
     For the master plan is without any flaws.
And when the darkness shuts out the light,
     We must lean on faith to restore our sight.
For there is nothing we need know
     If we have faith that wherever we go
God wiil be there to help us to bear
     Our disappointments, pain, and care.
For He is our Shepherd, our Father, our Guide,
     And you're never alone with the Lord at your side.
So may the great Physician attend you,
     And may His healing completely mend you.
                       Helen Steiner Rice

I like the symbolism reflected in the picture I chose to illustrate this poem...each flower is beautiful...some may look alike but each are uniquely one of a kind...All are needy of nourishment from the One True Stalk of Life...The Gift of God for the people of God...helping us not only to grow, but to vibrantly thrive!

FATHER'S DAY


Today is "Father's Day"...I think America tends to forget the most important Father of all...GOD THE FATHER...

Jesus often called Him His Father...and then there's the famous "OUR FATHER who art in Heaven..." prayer we all learned in Sunday School. Why don't we ever wish God a happy Father's Day? Why is it so removed from our thinking that the thought doesn't even enter into our minds?

I wished my true Father a happy Father's Day today...My biological father has transitioned, and I've told him "Happy Father's Day" today. But the one and only true Father--my Higher Power-- is right here with me, also...and should hear me voice my gratitude, too!

What more could I ask for in a father than what God has given me? ...True love forever and manifestation of all that entails in all its various forms, functions, actions and responses...Love without ceasing. Without conditions. Without any strings attached. 

I think He's definitely worthy of being wished a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
