Seasons of Fire by Raymond A. Foss

Our lives marked, recorded
in moments of joy
and in seasons of fire
learning through our trials,
through our struggles
times of loss and change

Growing in faith
trusting in our savior
becoming closer to God
Through the fires of adversity
finding God in our calming Spirit
our journey continuing
one season at a time

July 16, 2009 and July 19, 2009
written based on comments made 7/15/09
on the poem, In the Flames
In the Flames

Our lives, changed, tested, melted, molded
in the flames, in the struggles, in the challenges
the heartache, in the trials of life
in these moments, in these flames, perfected
refined as if silver, under the watchful, attentive gaze
the smithy, the creator, burning away the chaff
pruning in the furnace, the crucible,
shining metal, reflective of the maker
his face, his smile, his love shining in reflection
out of the fires, out of the flame we come changed
moving toward perfection, of our faith,
one season of fire at a time
