Artist's Description

Believing is so hard
When darkness covers us
We pray, we sigh, we cry,
But silence fills the soul
And the weary, clinging heart
Just wants to let go . . .

Then amidst the dying leaves
When Autumn dries up hope
A lonely little flower
blossoms on the barest branch . . .

A tiny smile from Heaven,
A whisper of encouragement,
Welcome refreshment on the dusty road . . .

And so we carry on . . .
And so we carry on . . .

(I took this photo of a red leaf plum blossom this afternoon in early November. This tree just does not bloom at this time of year, yet there it was, a single little flower on a bare branch amidst dying leaves. I really needed this little boost for my faith just about now when hope about certain things is waning and I’ve been trudging along pretty lamely. I post this in thanksgiving to the good Lord who I believe supplied this little “miracle” to revitalize my drooping spirits. I hope it refreshes someone else who is tempted to stop believing, to give up hope.)
