Winter’s Song

Trees tall and straight

With naked bough.

Their leaves only memories now.

_

 Sudden gust of wind,

Whirls the leaves,

Across a browning wintry lawn.

~~~

 Sitting here this morning with a cup of coffee, watching the leaves move across the lawn. Thanksgiving is past once more and Christmas will soon arrive. The calendar on the wall silently announces that another holiday season is here and with each season, the days of my life, like a calendar, are numbered.

Coffee tastes good this morning. Thank you, Lord, for another day.

A Back Pocket God

The God of the Bible has become a “back pocket God” to many Christians. He is conveniently there when needed, right next to the credit cards. An all-powerful God has been reduced to “in case of emergency” or “if all else fails.” Credit cards are reached for before God is called upon. A faith in God’s provisions is professed as the credit card is used to satisfy a want.

God asks us to trust Him…not our own abilities…not credit cards.

~~~

Therefore take no thought, saying,

What shall we eat?

What shall we drink?

Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness;

and all these things shall be added unto you.

(Matthew 6:31-33)
