The Reliable Son – A Poem

We are finally having really nice weather here in the Pacific Northwest. I’m even in a t-shirt and capris! The sun is shining and the sky is blue. But as I was sitting on my deck earlier today enjoying the sun, I was reminded that this beautiful weather is only temporary. Yet there is One, the reliable Son, who is not temporary but is forever my Savior.

The Reliable Son

Warmed to the core
as I bask in the sun
spying an eagle soar
high in the cerulean sky

At quarter to four
I’m still in the sun
ignoring each chore
as the day passes by

I always want more
of the beautiful sun
yet knowing in store
is a cloud covered sky

There’ll be rain galore
before we see sun
the deluge will pour
until again it is dry

It has left us before
that capricious sun
hiding when I look for
it high up in the sky

But the Son I adore
who created the sun
forever opens the door
and heeds my heart’s cry

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. nice…they both give warmth and are beyond powerful…we didn’t have much sun the last weeks though…hope that will change soon

  2. Your wonderful capricious sun shows just how much in the moment you were when writing. I like the way it moves along, just like the excitement of the weather and the day that inspired you. Just lovely… : )

    • Linda, We had another beautiful day again today. I even got to wear a yellow flowered sun dress to church, and later this afternoon planted some heliotropes in a pot by my front door. But the forecast calls for rain again later in the week. I’m just so thankful for the sunny days we do get, and for the Son who is with us every day regardless of the weather. 🙂 Peace, Linda

  3. smiles…nice…i am rather fond of both sun and son…we did not get much of the sun here today as it has been raining all day, but did catch the son at church this morning…smiles

  4. Thank you for this beautiful look at the temporary warmth of the sun, and the constant warmth of Jesus! God bless you and all you days with Him!
