Immersed in AUTUMN


Acorns dropping from the old oak trees
Uncovered and bare branches sway in the chilly breeze
Thick needled pines remain a deep hunter green
Untouched by time and the approaching winter season
Maple, elms, ash, and birch all sway and soon follow suit
Now changing hues and peaking as their leaves drift upon my shoes.

Friday Verse Journal John 14:1-3



Lately life has been unpleasant and deep sadness has crept in. My heart is twinged in pain.  Like many others who try so hard in this life to love, care, and help others, I endure my share of heartaches and difficulties. I face disappointments and struggles that just don’t end. I often feel that my efforts in life don’t mean anything but all I can do is keep praying and just keep trying to do what is good and right in Jesus’ eyes. Also, i am trying to keep my focus on Jesus and the wonderful home waiting in heaven. I am trying to hang onto that sure and certain hope which only Jesus can give:

John 14:1-3 (Holy Bible English Standard Version):

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so would I have told you that I go to a prepare a place for you? And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you with me so that where I am you will be also.”
