In the Midnight

From Blog10

LORD, you love me in the midnight
Of my soul-consuming gloom
Just as much as in the daylight
Of my brightest, happy noon.

You sustain me as I trust you
And you make me look ahead
To the world made pure and new
And the rising of the dead.

And those who know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.

--Psalm 9:10

Amen! What a wonderful little poem, and so true! I like the photograph too, a very good match!

(Just so happens, it's 3 minutes after midnight right now, but the gloom is only outside!)

Thanks, brother. I have a confession: The photo was really taken in the daytime, on a cloudy day. I then darkened it and reduced the color saturation a bit.
