"Behold, I will create
new heavens and a new earth.
The former things
will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.”
(Isaiah 65:17, NIV)

A Thistle’s Epistle
(Weeds of Thought from the Ultimate Transformer)

Three miracles the Maker wrought
That cancel out our highest thought:
He meets our needs,
Brings blooms from weeds
And all our failings He has bought.
