A Rose in Autumn

Autumn-Rose.jpg

Standing as tall as she can

She stretches her neck towards the sun

Petals showing their age but still retaining color of blushes

Lightly lined and becoming dry

She is happy to be there, in the garden, in the sun, in the green

Feeling the touch of the wind and the rain on her skin

Still alive and lovely and glad to be

The Mysteries of God

Cloud or mountain….tree or church….the mysteries of God are everywhere

The things we know….or think we know…..are nothing next to what He holds

We can only stand and gaze and wonder….and one day see
