Walking the pathway of tomorrow with Laura!

Faith is a splendored thing!

by junglefighter


This is for you, Laura Jan Lodle

"I love You"!


Have faith in our love, Laura.  There's a pot of gold at the end

of our rainbow,  just over the hill waiting for us.

Let's dig holes in this old world of sorrow, plant our seeds of

tomorrow, and grow together with our faith, love and trust.

What is faith, darling?  Have you given it any thought?  Is it a

gift from God?  Or, just another product that's bought?
I believe it is living, giving and sharing the words 

of Jesus,  that He so unselfishly taught.

Faith is knowing we can erase, the sad dreams from our hearts,

sing happy songs, be aware of where we're going and

what's waiting there. It's jumping the hurdles in

life as we do our part.

It assures us, that when a mother smiles, holding her child,

she'll kiss away its cries, say, "goo goo goo--I love you!"

Then wipe the tears from its eyes, send a prayer to God, "Thanks

 Father for Your gift, it's been a while!"

Faith awakens the reality of seeing little children, as they race to

the tree on Christmas morning with smiles longer than miles

on their faces.  It's seeing them scamper from here to

there with excitement then on to other places.

It enables us to watch the little baby ducks as they waddle

behind mama duck along the lake at the park. 

"Oh, look out there," someone yells!  "I know gulls

lurk there in the dark."

It is letting us see the baby deer feeding near, and slow

falling rain.  While we awaken from a dream of
fishing in a stream, catching speckled mountain trout.

"Oh, my God!  What a whopper!"

Faith is knowing we can watch the autumn leaves fall

from the trees, as they spiral in the breeze then rustle

along on the ground as baby squirrels scamper for

nuts.  "Do you see 'em, darling?"

Faith is love, sharing hugs, helping our brothers and sisters.

It is a small way and yet, a sure way, that let's us walk the

pathway to God and say, "We're home, Father--and guess

what?  We'll love one another forever."

This will be our dream and we shall not awaken, until we

have reached the end of our rainbow and found

our pot of gold.  "Come on, Angel--let's keep a-walkin,

It's just over the hill!"


Faith is a splendored thing, my friends.
Go fill your pockets full!
