Be An Autumn Tree
By Lucia K Haase
Reflecting in the lake, unstirred and still,
an Autumn woodland watercolored hill
is mirroring the Artist’s given way
within the depths of water here, today.
Reflecting through the hallowed ages, still-
the Savior gave His life upon the Hill;
all glory to the Father for the Way,
and for the living water here, today…
and from mankind reflects, unstirred and still,
the way of Christ, like trees upon the hill;
as Christians, we are mirroring His way-
the living water calling out today.
Go out today and be an Autumn tree-
Go out today that others too, will see,
that vibrant is the Living Water’s glow,
and glorious, the love of Christ, we know.
“Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death,
that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in newness of life.”
