Stunning start to what waits to be...
How easily and often we check the weather forecast,
No one can choose what weather will be.
Thankfully not so with Whether;
And the Whether we choose makes all the difference in the world.
Our viewpoint is shaped by the 'whether' we choose!
Due to an unexpected week off I am on a closet-drawer-room fall-cleaning rampage!
Today, hopefully the living/dining-room.
tomorrow...um, let's wait till then to decide because plans
are always subject to change and rearrangement!
Heaven spills magenta oceans o’er emerging land and sea
Dawn is like a door flung open to whatever waits to be
We could hound the bounds of morrow with sorrows not suffered (yet)
Or borrow from Present Mercy, faith to proceed step by step
Fear is like a crouched predator too afraid to show its face
Stalking doubt’s perimeter with harsh predictions void of grace
Ah, we could fall prey to Dread’s bandit; fretting and forgetting He
Who will never leave us stranded no matter what waits to be
We are all today’s First-timers grappling with Time’s Now and Here
Are we agile, faith-child climbers, or are we crippled by fear
We are all in this together; tethered to the hand we’ve got
Where God lets us choose the Whether; whether we trust Him, or not
Happiness is not a lender favouring a Lucky Few
It waits for all who surrender, heart and soul, to you know Who
It is up to us to do it; take faith’s flying leap to see
Whether God will help us through It, no matter what waits to be

do not fear or be dismayed because of the king of Assyria
nor because of all the horde that is with him;
for the one with us is greater than the one with him.
