when somedays seem like a struggle…




It was right up there, after  the woman in the buggy turned a corner.

After she turned a corner and passed the humility of wheat, the sheaves bowed and surrendered.

After she took one long breath and released her grip and let the reins lie loose across her open palm.

After she’d just decided that, wherever this road led, she would simply cling to God.

After that —

That’s when she saw it …



how the struggle in her skies,

all the storm moments mingling with all the light,

arched over her into one beautiful promise —

the vapor of His Presence

that always remains.





Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him.

This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.

When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking. …. ~Ezekiel 1:28
