Rainbows of Hope

Rainbow

Look up

Above the

Path covered in gloom

Rainbows of hope fill the sky

Look up

A Firm Foundation

Big solid rock

Earth’s tickling my feet,

Sensations surround my mind,

Running to escape, I

Keep reaching towards heaven,

Grasping above me,

Looking for a life line,

A hand reaches down,

Lifts me to another level,

Where I stand on solid rock.

Choka

On Christ, the solid rock, I stand

All other ground is sinking sand…”

from “My Hope Is Built on Nothing Less”, a Christian hymn written by Edward Mote, a pastor at Rehoboth Baptist Church in Horsham, West Sussex. Mote wrote around 100 hymns, this one, which he wrote in 1834, being the best known of his.

Above

Jar with James 1:17 scripture

Treasures abound.

Many gifts are waiting

In my Father’s house.

Only good and perfect gifts

Are waiting to be found.

Tanka

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17 KJV

Ever Upward

Original mixed media by Leonas Designs

On Excelsior!

Higher and always upward,

Though shades of night fall,

Your youth shall bring victory!

Though sadness and sorrow

Threaten in the storms of life,

Carry your banner high!

Faint thee not! Excelsior!

Your help comes from above!

Choka

(This poem was inspired by reading “Excelsior” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)
