Father of us all
Was the promise given him
By Abraham’s faith
One hundred years old
Sarah ninety barren
Gave glory to God

the scripture for yourself.

i will read this scripture.. I haven’t read the bible in a long time.. but I feel like i should
A great passage on faith.
and i just think I should add that this scripture correlates exactly with something that has been bothering my faith lately.. thank you Michael
Looks like your journey is having a positive and reflective effect on your readers ~~ awesome, awesome!!!
I enjoyed reading your perspective, and thank you for sharing!
It’s given me an opportunity do get back into the word on a daily basis. I find it harder to be as poetic as you and some of the others. It’s difficult for me to change or augment the 1611 version’s translation. Having said that, I enjoy yours and the others poetification of the word very much.
A wonderful set of haiku Booguloo. I feel almost the same. I haven’t read the Bible for a long time, but now … during this Lent Haiku Journey … I have to. Reading the biblical phrases Terrie has given us make me happy and even restores my faith.
It’s a good journey for all of us it would seem. smiles…
Very Nice, Michael! Seems we were all picking up the same thread in this one 🙂
As we go forward. smiles
As a child, this was always one of my favorite stories.
Nicely done, Michael.
I just found out my ex wife is 5 months pregnant. Normally that would be accepted as really good news, but she’s 55 years old. Looks like it’s been decided that she’s going full term.
Wow! What a challenge and what a risk. Good luck to her. I have a friend who successfully brought a healthy child to term at fifty. Not doing too well at 66 with a teenager in high school. Huge generation gap. Phew!
We divorced on a copacetic basis but I’m at arms length with this situation. I wish the best for her and her husband.
When I read the scripture, all I could think of was Sarah’s laughter! I am left wondering where laughter and faith cross!
“Father of us all” carries a wonderful surplus of meaning. Well done!
I can’t imagine the amount of faith or just resting in His word that it was going to happen.
