Autumn's Glory ~ Joan Adams Burchell



Autumn’s Glory



Leaves, spiraling softly down -
coloring the ground;
Crimson, claret, amber, orange -
browns spread around.


Colors blending from God’s own pallette
bring us Autumn’s Glory;
The brisk, cool breeze - mittens donned -
all tell Autumn’s story.


Children laughing with utmost glee
as they jump in a leafy pile;
Carefree Autumn, with squirrels scooting -
gathering nuts with style.


Smoke ascending from chimney tops
and reaching to the skies;
Mothers busy with pumpkins and apples -
baking favorite pies.


The season is joyful with all it holds -
everything bright with hope;
Holidays near, that time of year
when Peace our hearts promote. 


Colors no other season can boast -
Autumn is God’s own way
To bring together family and friends;
Autumn’s Glory is God’s “Hurray!”

 Acts 14:17
 Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, 
in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, 
and fruitful seasons, filling our
 hearts with food and gladness.

Our Father’s Empathy ~ Joan Clifton Costner


Our Father’s Empathy

"Casting all your care upon Him,
for He careth for you. "1 Peter 5:7
Too wise to make an error,
Too just to do a wrong;
When darkness, here, surrounds me
Then, I list for Heaven’s song.
For, the Giver of the rainbow,
The Creator of the light,
Will not leave us, in our sorrow,
All alone in blackest night.
In Him, alone, is solace
And there is no darkness there.
He will reach out and enfold us
With His tender, loving, care.
So, when you’re bowed in sorrow
And your heart breaks right in two,
Remember that your Father shares
That grief along with you.

He will never, ever, leave us.
He will not forsake His own.
He will share your deepest burden,
Just as if it were His own.
So, dear friend, when there’s no comfort
To be had on earth, below,
Remember how God loves you
And His word will tell you so.

First, the storm, then, the rainbow ~
First, the darkness, then, the Light ~
First, the need of Divine comfort,
Then, His steady arm of might!
And, I’ve found, where e’er I wander,
There’s no place beyond His care;
If I only bow and whisper
That sweet Name, in humble prayer!

Jesus Is All The World To Me ~ Sarah Berthelson


Jesus Is All The World To Me

Why am I feeling so joyful this day
I think I started it as I pray
For the ones that I love and those I do not know
Sometime I feel that my love does not show
Jesus is the world to me

Jesus reached down and touched my heart at a very young age
I knew He was there and seeking me to come to Him
He let me know that He went to the cross for me
Jesus is the world to me

How do we show Him how much we love Him
Not by staying home from church or not seeking His face
So often we never speak to Him at all in a day
He misses us and wants us to pray
Jesus is the world to me

Because he is the Lord of my Life
I thank Him this day for being by my side
He answers my prayers and He speak to me
Jesus is the world to me.

Sarah Berthelson
