Haven-Five Minute Friday

A place of shelter and safety, 
away and protected from the storm 

I remember the place God provided for me 
a new home, a new family all those years ago 
close to where I was already living, 
but oh so far from the forces that wanted to destroy

I was transplanted into a different pot 
and taken inside a greenhouse 
while winter winds whistled outside 

big plants, small plants, young and old 
could grow alongside each other in this Haven of Hope

Nurtured and watered while new shoots began to grow 


See what others have drummed up about "haven" at


  1. Visiting from Five Minute Friday! Thank you for sharing such poetic words! I am thankful God always provides a "Haven of hope" for us.

  2. Love the "haven of hope"! So glad our God provides this for us!
