The rosebud

The rosebud woke to the     morning breeze And smiled to the world with     consummate ease. It thought to itself: God has    given me room To gently unfurl and present     perfect bloom.


Turmoil, sickness, hatred, sin Send forth their awful, noisy din Yet mortal lies can’t cause dismay, They disappear in Truth’s clear day. For error cannot still the Word; In spite of tumult, God is heard.

Inn or stable?

Herod could not see the star shining above mother and child, heralding divine Truth. Herod could not hear the song of angels o’er shepherds’ fields, rejoicing with the dawn.

All rays of light in thought ought to make us humbly grateful. Truth doesn’t come in installments but often rests till we are ready.

God’s promise*

Do not fear, for I am with you, Rise in strength from earthly sod. Those against you are confounded.

'There is none else'

God, the great I AM— the only presence. I AM.

The Comforter

“I’m way out of my comfort zone …, ” words I so often say, feeling less than comfortable however hard I pray. Then, enfolding me in love, the angel thought is clear: “You are forever in God’s zone, for the promised Comforter is here!”* —Cathrine Hogg * See John 14:16.
