Thoughts for Fall

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3:5, 6)

“God rests in action. Imparting has not impoverished, can never impoverish, the divine Mind. No exhaustion follows the action of this Mind, according to the apprehension of divine Science. The highest and sweetest rest, even from a human standpoint, is in holy work.” (Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 519:25.)

When I saw you waiting

Across the many miles I saw
you hungry, waiting at my door.
For food, I thought, but no, much more!
For peace, for life, your country’s too.

Some wonder just what they would do
In thirst and drought on desert floor
Or winds of war on monsoon shore.
We look to God and His sure law.

Our life in God tells us what’s true.
Despite the lies of lack and war,
God’s love is yours and was before
I saw you waiting at my door.

Go, eagle!

Go, eagle!
Catch the heaven-bound thermals of Truth/Love,
and soar.
