He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the almighty.. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust...
Psalms 91:1-2


The almighty abides
Neath' the shadow
Of a weeping willow;
He is there
As we kneel
In silent prayer...
The Angel guides,
Us in times of distress.
Jesus our fortress
And refuge
Steers the wheel...
His light will not go dim
Along life's commute,
If we put our trust in Him.

Poetry by me AJP

This huge weeping willow tree stands outside of our house and
it was glowing in the sun early last evening when my husband and I took a walk after supper to pick up our mail at the end of our long country driveway. I knew I had to capture the shadow and light as I had never seen it so beautiful.
