Nature displays many stories, year after year. Behind the scene is the what, where, and why.

Bounty of the Field

From the lily field
We see the bounty of wisdom's yield.
When dormant days are fulfilled
Its plan and purpose has been willed.
To the soil each must return.

In Glory

To the Believer the Saviour said,
"Life I give unto thee."
The promise is to appear in Glory.
Instruction is found in the old, old story.
The lessons are there, vital to be learned.

Proclaimed Wisdom

When the lilies dormant days are fulfilled,
its purpose has been willed.
There is a blossom standing tall.
It displays life's beauty to us all.
Silently proclaims such wisdom to install.

Their Story Tell

There is more than beauty to behold.
There is knowledge for memory to hold.
Treasure the stories of time of old.
Sort and weigh each story well,
Simple and plain, their stories tell.


Fulfilled Purpose, Lesson There, Purpose, Tell Story
