Autumn Glow

Autumn_Threshold
Lord, if You will make
The autumn of my life
As lovely as this
Golden autumn morning
I will not look back to grieve
The passing days of summer.
Of all the regal seasons
Autumn is most brilliant.
Make my life brilliant, too!

But I trust in you, O Lord, I say, ‘You are my God.’
My times are in your hands.

Psalm 31:14-15



from the writings of Ruth Harms Calkin
