“For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.” —Romans 8:22.

All creation, I remind myself.

Everywhere, birth pangs,

even now in

these lilty summer days

so wondrous

my breath hitches with awe.

“Push,” I say

as the future dilates,

soon to deliver a

new earth,




“Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.”

—Colossians 3:2



“Listen to this, Job; stop and consider God’s wonders.”

—Job 37:14



“For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.”

—1 Cor 13:9-10



“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.”

—2 Corinthians 5:17


And a few 2019 throwbacks for you:


“For God, who said, ‘Let there be light in the darkness,’ has made this light shine in our hearts so we could know the glory of God that is seen in the face of Jesus Christ.”

—2 Corinthians 4:6 NLT


Because tempests end.

Driving home after the rain a week ago, this.

“He stilled the storm to a whisper . . .”

—Psalm 107:29


Afterward. Still standing.

“Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.”

—Ephesians 6:13


When the glass ceiling breaks.

“For nothing is impossible with God.”

—Luke 1:37 NLT



Fireweed blossoms blaze up their summer stem all the way to September’s “smoke.” This shot reads late July.

“As long as the earth endures,

seedtime and harvest,

cold and heat,

summer and winter,

day and night

will never cease.”

—Genesis 8:22


Thanks for stopping by, friends. So glad you’re here.
