The Strength of My Faith
“Faith is not belief without proof, but trust without reservation.”
D. Elton Trueblood
I have faith
that we can find the circumference of a circle
if we know the radius or diameter,
and someone remembers pi.
that trees, grass, and vines will eventually
overtake our human
that my dog will go to
the first person available, on or before 5:30 p.m.,
and demand dinner if I am gone.
that the sun will continue to shine
and planets will rotate
after I die.
that I will not willingly jump from an intact plane,
ski down a snow-covered slope, or
climb a steep mountain face for fun.
