faith is planting bulbs in the fall,
with the hope that in spring
the flowers grow tall.

faith is knowing when autumn leaves fall,
that buds, blossoms, and fruit
will answer nature’s call.

faith is the sun rising in the eastern sky, bringing warmth to the earth as the birds sing perched on the branches up high.

faith, upon hearing baby’s cries,
is believing new lives sail forth and drift with the melodies of lullabyes.

faith is in knowing our legacy will live,
with laughter and memories spread out into the branches of kindness we give.
