Inspired by . . . a poem


Crouch in darkness

pass through waters

walk through fire



The blind see

paths are made known

crooked places made straight



A Presence in the valley

no fear of evil

comfort in discipline



Trust in the Word

light and salvation

strength of my life




Dad’s Christmas cactus, which only ever blooms at Christmas, is blooming again.

However grieved your heart may be over personal circumstances, or worldly atrocities

listen for His voice, and let HOPE bloom anew.

Because Sunday is coming,

and spring is, too.

  1. Oh June, how wonderful that your father's cactus is blooming right now. God's love . . . just wow! Sending you hugs from Chicago. Much love. xoxo

  2. Many "signs of life" in your world right now. You know my thoughts on the subject, and I remain, ever amazed by the glory of it all! XO

  3. Your pictures as well as your word pictures always fill my heart and speak to me right where I need it. Listen for his voice and let hope bloom anew! Amen! Thank you for sharing this beauty at The Weekend Brew.

  4. This is a beautiful poem! It reminds us of so many of the attributes of our great God. Thank you! I'm visiting from #GiveMeGrace

    Sending much love

  12. I love the Christmas cactus. And it's untimely bloom yet right on time, I'm sure. All these names of our Father--so hopeful. Thanks, June.

  13. That God even chooses to speak to us amazes me, the ways in which He sometimes chooses to do so, break my heart. Looking forward to reading your latest book review. Sounds like it's right up my alley :) thanks for stopping by, Lisa!
