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

On Friday, August 10, I became engaged to the most wonderful young lady I have ever known (in my biased opinion ;-) ). I have been amazed over and over again at the grace and love of God, who was the one who brought us together.
This poem was written in celebration of what God has been doing in our lives.


I’ll never fully understand
The mysteries that shroud the heart,
When two hearts blend as one forever,
Each given the keys to doors once sealed;

I stand here as a life that’s changed,
I now explore a whole new world;
My dreams once built a land of fairies,
But so much more is now at hand…

Farewell to Days Gone By

Thinking about how our lives change as Father leads us to new paths, there can be a sense of missing something in the days gone by... But Father is always bringing us to even better places in His wonderful plans for us. I do not regret the change, but enjoy what God has given...
My sister is getting married in a week and a half. We will miss our everyday interaction with her, but know that our times with her in the future will be even more wonderful.

Farewell to Days Gone By

Farewell, you pleasant days of old,
I leave you in the hands of God,
For He’s revealed new plans for me,
New mountain views for me to see;

Farewell, you trails I once held dear,
I’m called to newer paths to clear,
For by my Father’s perfect scheme
He’s brought me to a newer dream;

Farewell you moments now moved on,
I’ll miss you, but God’s brought the dawn—
Our tears forgotten in the morn
As countless blessings now are born…
