Hurricane Irene

As I watched the storm in my back yard from the sliding glass doors, I wanted to write down the scenes from Hurricane Irene.  It’s a bit of a mess out there!

One lone bird wobbles sideways in flight–

Glad to see what it couldn’t last night.


One lone tree, horizontal and torn,

Sorry friends hover over and mourn.


One lone wind  lifts the leaves from their crown–

Rain reacts, dashes all of them down.


One lone storm tosses earth to the sky,

Threatens us, “You are all going to die!”


One lone soul Singing “Goodnight Irene”,

Bids farewell to a terrible scene.

By C. Hope Flinchbaugh, watching Hurricane Irene in Pennsylvania

About Lift the Cross of Jesus!

My day job is writing--I'm an author and publisher of a number of books. More on that later. But there is nothing of greater importance to me than the early morning hours I spend with the Creator of the Universe. Although He knows everything there is to know, His greatest delight isn't to give us knowledge, but to give us love. My highest joy is to watch the sun rise with notebook in hand and write the words he speaks to my heart. I want to share some of those words with you here . . . words on the cross.

  1. Here are the plain horse facts: we got some wind and rain here in central PA in the Susquehanna Valley over the last 24 hours. In church this morning, we had just started at 9:30 and the power went out. Except for my not being able to play the organ and having no lights to see our Bibles and hymn books very well, we proceeded with S. school and the morning service. We will meet tonight with or without power. If no power, we’ll all bring flashlights. 🙂
