Brighter Than The Break of Day...


For we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Cor. 5:7

 Have you noticed? 'break of day' is happening a wee bit earlier than it did a few weeks ago...yay!!


The Light that draws the veil of night from city streets and countryside
Is more than golden bloom that breaks the bud of morning open wide
It streams beyond the scope of sight to where hope sets its hungry stare
And beams its never-failing Light through life-appointments of despair

Earth’s art that reappears where darkness hid its loveliness from view
Is like the heart, once dark with fears after the Light of faith shines through
Then, though we do not know what high or low this ergo might bequeath
Our passage through life's picture show is cupped in Light above, beneath

Great peace have they who love God’s law’; with trembling might faith grasps a rope
That tolls a bell; for fear is hell but heaven anchors holy hope
Then, from the belfry of God’s grace a song of peace and purpose peals
His law is love; ah, human race is cradled in a law that heals

His Light is brighter than the light that breaks the dark of night with day
It beams beyond the scope of sight where students of faith learn to pray
And dialogue peppered with words like ‘if’ and ‘when’ and ‘hopefully’
Feels through the fog to find the Lamp that lights the way we cannot see

" Still don't know much. 
They did ultrasound last night and more blood work 
so hopefully when the Dr comes this morning we may know something."


...above message from my sister-in-law Karen, this morning who is still waiting as Dr.s try to 'fix' the condition that caused a great scare on the week-end.
(her body now rejects the blood-thinner she has been on for years)
Please continue to pray for her, 
for the doctors,
and for the family, Dave, Josh and Krista and Jessica
