ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER
The road is full of stumbling blocks, we see them every day,
Our path is filled with hiccups which toughen up the way,
Our journey to eternity is filled with indecision,
We struggle through all daily tasks, requiring supervision,
The signs that lead to nowhere, just clutter up our walk,
We can’t decide which way to go, we simply talk the talk,
But when we walk with Jesus, our road is made quite clear,
The things that seemed impossible, lose all their haunting fear,
Our daily walk is easy when we simply trust in Him,
We’ll reach our destination and in the end we win!
Yesterday we took our final autumn drive to search for God’s beauty filled landscape. He did not disappoint. The colors were brilliant crimson, sparkling gold and deep russet – with an underpainting of greens and a glorious sky of blue. All the colors combined to create a beautiful masterpiece. As we drove through a nature preserve, I couldn’t help notice how the trumpeter swans always seem to be in pairs. Their long necks come together to create a perfectly shaped heart. Apparently these birds mate for life. God not only creates beautiful backgrounds, but creatures that are necessary to complete the picture.
