Life's Moment-sky

 This morning life's moment-sky is as colorless and bleak as the landscape.

In my heart of hearts I know
This time beneath life’s moment-sky
Is but a twinkling ebb and flow
Before we bid its gasp good-bye

This time beneath life’s moment-sky
Is a scabbard of mystery
And none of us can prophesy
The details shaping history

Its keen, ephemeral ebb and flow
Will test and try our boasted trust
For none of us can really know
Our depth of faith until we must

Before we bid its gasp good-bye
May we acknowledge only this
…One greater than life’s moment-sky
Prevails, and where we are HE IS

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

The truck my husband drives broke down shortly after he loaded in Sask. yesterday. Since no mechanic has time to even look at it until next week he is flying home this morning. We never know what a day will bring and it is better in the long run that we do not. God provides grace and strength in our hour of need and only for the hour we are in!


  1. Wow!!!no doubt!!! How's Victoria?
    sending prayers your way...

  2. Thank-you for the prayers. Victoria is sparsely splattered with big ones, but there are new ones hatching. I don't think it will be too serious:) Right now Melissa is making pancakes and filling a breakfast tray to deliver to her on the couch while she watches cartoons, something she seldom gets a chance to do. I think she's thinking chicken-pox are okay at this point....they are not itchy yet;)


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
