I have faith in the turning of the seasons, in the wind and in the rising and setting of the sun. I have faith in things seen and unseen, laughter and joy, angels and the Holy Spirit. I have faith in what is routine and predictable: waking up and falling into sleep, our going out and our coming in. I have faith in those who do and them that don’t.

I have faith in surprise and spontaneous: a proposal to be man and wife, or a pre-dawn decision to head off somewhere to see IMG_1625something new. To make a phone call to friends and meet up for supper and conversation, or driving in to check cattle and finding ourselves at the kitchen table sharing a cup of coffee and our lives.

I have faith in God, the Creator and Sustainer who loved us enough to call us into being so that we may be blessed and loved by Him.

I have faith that DSCN0823God guides me, sending me on my way each day with good things in store for me on my path, and with those whom I can touch with His love. I have faith that God wraps me in arms of love each night as I lie to rest to let me know that everything will be okay. The mistakes I made are forgiven and a whole new day awaits the coming of the dawn.
