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

Dancing in the Night

I believe that if we can learn to be content in the midst of the trials God has us in, we will be blessed beyond our dreams...

Dancing in the Night

The sun went down like a ship on fire
And dreams have drowned in icy seas;
The night’s a tomb that holds my heart,
But still the moon shines down on me—

At first my tears were wandering far,
As packs of fears howled haunting tunes;
I thought my plight was grim indeed,
But still the light flowed from the moon—

And when I learned to dance among
The silver spurned in better days,
The joy I find beneath the stars
Leaves far behind my former ways—

Here with the moon I’ve danced all night;
Now life has bloomed that’s twice as grand:
My eyes are drawn towards the eastern sky,
I see the dawn and all God planned!
