The Strength of My Faith

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

manicuring efforts.


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.
