Been inspired over at (in)courage to write a haiku about winter... this is what first came to mind as I looked out the window:
bare branches stretching
pointing to Glory we miss
causing us to pause
but something bigger is on my heart... heavier... and so I sit and let word beauty pour out:
Hot winter rumbles
life and death in epic race
Glory will still win
"God, in the midst of tragedy, we know You are still who You say You are. Same Glory... forever. Thank you for pointing us to Your final victory- for promising that this world is not our home, and that one day death will be destroyed! Hallelujah! But now- with scenes of death stamped on the screens of our minds and hearts- move us to action and push us to our knees (where the true battle is fought!). Be Your Ever-Present self in Haiti. Shine brightly- Glorious One- in the midst of utter darkness. We wait for You. -Amen"
