Hopeful And Honest Part 1

"Fate in the hands of God always
beholds a greater future I'm finding.
As its opportunity reflects this... 
His devotion for all of us I believe
honestly telling of this... ." 

"Here-in the reflection-
of the tender waters 
of this humble-
stream... " -  

"And as I cast-
away my hopes to-
Him, my faith sighs,
and my joy runs freely-
behind me there-
over yonder to-
greet me-
across the-
meadow" -  

"Because I-
know that-
perfect like-
an apple falling from a 
tree upon all of us, his goodness can be-
found cascading down rustling up the leaves- 
slip drop too and fro slip drop bop bop thunk thunk-
crying look out below thunk, ouch. Barreling down faster 
and faster through the air running along with it past the-
proposal of each on every branch. Waltzing along through-
time laughing hysterically"; 

"And as a small breeze blows my heart beats eagerly, and 
with all that we've been through together, my soul lies down-
chuckling, confidingly, knowing now that He's in complete-

"Grace weeps willingly for me knowing it has always been-
with me, this perfect way with Him ever greater in the-
respect. Concentrated and open my patient prayer having-
been my only reprieve securing my repose." 

"While with a rustle rustle slip drop bop slip drop bop, thunk-
thunk. Leaning back up under it letting go of my fishing pole-
with closed eyes I reach out catch an apple and then another. 
Snatching two up out of the air in the palm of my hands while 
sitting up, I laugh aha ... ! Finally I got you! Open my eyes 
drop one, swipe my pole back up again bob my head as to 
say you go girl. Chomp down on the other and rather 
cockily and over confidently laugh louder, then 
louder. Swallow hard, real hard, slowly, suddenly. 
As another falls quietly slip drop thunk smack 
then I'm caught again, "shouting ouch". As 
it lands and whacks me hard right on the 
top of my head! God snickering loudly, 
as I know He must surely be as I know I 
most certainly am."
