Haiku about Family

It has been a long time since I wrote one of these, and I thought that I would give a haiku a try. My Dad left us today to undergo cancer treatment in another city. His parting is what inspired this poem.

Woven family life

Embrace: we say fare thee well

Father’s journey, Hope

    1. It can be especially challenging to remain faithful during difficult times. At the same times I do not question God’s will any more as things flow much more easily when I surrender whatever it is. Acceptance and having the serenity to know what to change or accept allows for a much more peaceful state of existence. God does take good care of us even if we aren’t sure of where he is going with things.
