Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

At the Edge of Forever

On the twenty-fourth of June my younger sister was betrothed to be married. I wrote this poem in honor of this event in their lives.

At the Edge of Forever

We’re standing at the edge and know
Before our feet extends forever.
We know that if we take the plunge
We can’t retreat from what may come;

We’ll never see this ledge again,
Our lives will never be the same;
We know that if we take the plunge
The choice will sever ties of old;

But on the edge we know it’s true
So much we’ve longed for lies ahead—
And we will choose to dare the dive,
For love is found within the depths.
