Faith, Love, and Fall

“The lesson of the falling leaves

the leaves believe such letting go is love

such love is faith

such faith is grace

such grace is god 

i agree with the leaves.”

~Lucille Clifton, American poet, writer, and educator, June 27, 1936- February 13, 2010

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. ~John 15:12 (NIV)

Know therefore that the Lord Your God is God; he is the faithful Go, keeping his covenant of love to those who love him and keep his commandments. ~Deuteronomy 7:9 (NIV)

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him. ~Hebrews 11:6 

Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. ~John 1:16

Dear God, please help us to fall in love with your grace and mercy this fall and restore our faith that letting go is love, the love that we have faith to grow with the grace of knowing you are God. Amen.
