fall light

Calling All Saints

whether young or old

in the dust

or fighting the cold

raise your voices to the One

who fuels our spirit

above Him none

lay down your swords

you who have led the fight

to honor’s charge

you have shone the light

see the candles

watch them glow

timeless they flicker

for life we will know

 

As we celebrate All Saints Day, we think of those who have faithfully gone before us. Who would we be had they not taken the time to show us a piece of our Lord? Their paths were not straight, life was often tough, and yet through those times they learned to persevere. May we remember as days grow long, cold and harsh – to Look Up!

 

“Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen you heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

Psalms 27:14

 

“My voice you shall hear in the morning, O Lord; In the morning, I will direct it to You, And I will look up.”

Psalms 5:3
