Grace Be Faith

when the night bears a light of gold
the story of faith be ever told
when despair and desolation grasp the heart
it is faith that allows all doubt to depart
the dark to hold light in its embrace
upon its path faith shall ever you trace
joyful be the moment known
when grace be faith in beauty shown.

“And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written,
‘I believed and therefore I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak”

(2 Corinthians 4:13, NKJ)

Touched ever so deeply by the cycles of birth and death among family and friends, within the last weeks, has called to heart and has called to FAITH... and so here expressed and lovingly shared...


  1. "it is faith that allows all doubt to depart"

    Yes it is Rose Marie...your image is is your poem!

  2. Theanne, As I look to each letter of FAITH - its meaning speaks through each letter ~ Freedom ~ Aspiration ~ I AM ~ Truth - my Heart I give....

  3. There can be no faith where there is certainty - it is in doubt that we know and need faith
    Love Gail

  4. Gail, FAITH has been a blessed solace in facing loss.

    Much love and strength on to all.
