Give Me More, Lord

If it can be verified, we don’t need faith…

Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason.

Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and

ambiguities and sudden, startling joys.

– Madeleine L’Engle

  I pulled up my knees to my chest, sitting on the window seat. The light was slowly moving across the valley but yet the sunrise was still minutes away from coming over the mountain. Give me more light. I smiled about my obsession with morning light. I poised my camera on the mountain peak, ready. Not yet. How slow the minutes passed. The sun was sure. it would come, it had for the past 63 years. And yet I wait.  

                        Give me more faith, Lord

 I have been writing with the Five Minute Friday Group for more than two years and I really enjoy the talented writers who share themselves each week.


  1. This is such a beautiful moment. I was just reading this week how slowing down to take photos and capture moments has a profound calming effect. Thank you for the reminder to stop and do this more often.

  2. That is an amazing photo! You've captured it at just the perfect moment!

  3. I think the world needs more moments of light than darkness. Beautiful post.

  4. A friend of mine recently remarked how her baby is fascinated with lights and how we should remember to seek the light as well. Beautiful second reminder. Like the giant sunflower, we can choose to turn towards the light.
