pondering faith along I 70

somewhere along 
the journey

we begin to realize
the truth we've believed
but never really known

"life on earth
is but a vapor"

indeed

sadness indwells 
the quickening

but while days
blur into decades

something called hope
rises from the earth
like trees from prairie grass

we hear it in the carefree laughter of children
we see it
in the forgiving eyes of the old

astonishingly
it is our daily privilege
to take hold of it
or let it

go



"Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."
                                                                                            ~Hebrews 12:1
