My father was called Home in March, 40 years ago this year. He was a veteran and history teacher. Once he said to me, “Everything will be OK in the end.”
My parents had “big picture faith.”
One day at a time . . . we try our best and also learn from what life teaches.
For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD:
thou art my trust from my youth.
Psalm 71: 5

I remember prayers of friends
My haiku was published at
Poems From Psalms And Nature on May 16, 2012. Reprinted in the book, The Helping Hand Haiku Anthology (Including Senryu, Tanka, and Haiga). Edited by Robert Epstein (2020, Middle Island Press).
Karl and I also reprinted the poem in
Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014).
Evening, and morning, and at noon,
will I pray, and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.
Psalm 55: 17

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
