and he delights in me

I am just a falling flower, 
like grass that withers, 
a wave tossed upon the sea or 
a breath upon the wind.

and yet

I am burning with jealousy for her”
he wants me.

I am very jealous for her”
he wants me.

I will be faithful and righteous to her as her God”
he wants me.

I will bring her back”
he wants me.

So I will save you”
he wants me.
he is with me.

(quotations from Zechariah 4)

Zechariah 9:9-17

9 Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
   Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!

See, your king comes to you,
   righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
   on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
   and the warhorses from Jerusalem,
   and the battle bow will be broken.
He will proclaim peace to the nations.
   His rule will extend from sea to sea
   and from the River to the ends of the earth.
11 As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you,
   I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit.
12 Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope;
   even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.
13 I will bend Judah as I bend my bow
   and fill it with Ephraim.
I will rouse your sons, Zion,
   against your sons, Greece,
   and make you like a warrior’s sword.
 14 Then the LORD will appear over them;
   his arrow will flash like lightning.
The Sovereign LORD will sound the trumpet;
   he will march in the storms of the south,
 15 and the LORD Almighty will shield them.
They will destroy
   and overcome with slingstones.
They will drink and roar as with wine;
   they will be full like a bowl
   used for sprinkling the corners of the altar.
16 The LORD their God will save his people on that day
   as a shepherd saves his flock.
They will sparkle in his land
   like jewels in a crown.
17 How attractive and beautiful they will be!
   Grain will make the young men thrive,
   and new wine the young women.

my daddy said that if i practiced enough 
i'd be able to tell as soon as it left my finger tips
if it would hit or miss, left or right.

i tried it today
and it seems as if the time it
takes after it leaves my
finger tips
is too short
to tell whether it will
hit or miss,
left or right.

but maybe someday it won't be.

i love fall

with the cool crisp air
the brilliant leaves
the bright blue sky
the warm sun
the round orange pumpkins
the smokey smell in the air
the long pants and
the long sleeves
the grass that has stopped growing...
i love everything except
the approaching winter....
