Lily Pads: On our backyard pond, an unexpected flash of white I saw flotilla of white, A new and intriguing sight. Lily pads floating free, Blades of aquatic beauty. Simplicity and grace adrift They offer a momentary lift. Floating leaf-cups sweet and nice Refuge from a noisy life. I long to skip across each plate Each one able to lift the weight. I laugh at such folly of course-- I'm held up by a higher force. ----- G Hill
Lily pads, round and green, holding me up while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear. —Anne Lamott, Traveling Mercies
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10
