The Savior Calls

Beautiful Christ, my Savior and Lord,
I hear your voice in the crisp fall air,
Calling softly, “Come and follow,
I have sought you with love and care.

I bore the world’s sin and sorrow –
I walked a path no one else could trod,
that you might have life to the full,
and spend it in the love and peace of God.

Though you turned away from me,
and quickly followed your own ways,
I’ve been always by your side –
I’ve walked with you all your days.

I ask you now to turn and see,
My pierced hand outstretched to you,
Take it and trust that I’m still here,
Forgiving, patient, steadfast, and true.”

Fall Foliage At The Maryland Renaissance Festival

A Fall Justification

Dreary Sky

It’s a cold, wet day relying on my goodness alone.
The rain stings my face and
no matter how hard I try,
I cannot seem to get warm.
There’s a chill that’s settled in my bones.

But wrapped in the warm, soft blanket of God’s grace,
the blazing fire of the Holy Spirit roaring
on the hearth of my heart,
I know that I am embraced, forgiven and ne’er alone.
No chilly fall nip can take the warmth of Christ’s love from me.

Roaring Fire
