AUTUMN GRACE

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

Three Bible Verses

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

Matthew 6: 21 (KJV)

Then I saw that wisdom excelleth folly,
as far as light excelleth darkness.

Ecclesiastes 2: 13 (KJV)

Hear my cry, O God;
attend unto my prayer.

From the end of the earth
will I cry unto thee,
when my heart is overwhelmed:
lead me to the rock
that is higher than I.

Psalm 61: 1-2 (KJV)

The plants were from a grocery store
and the tray is from a thrift store.

years go by

He giveth snow like wool:
he scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

Psalm 147: 16 (KJV)

This is a beautiful Bible verse!

years go by
leaves fall
time of rest
then rebirth
God’s time
not mine

grower to a store
in a small town
and our garden
this year’s
chrysanthemum

older now
as I pray the Psalms
how peaceful these trees
