Robinson offers his faith, memories, and insights in eloquent verse “to let the beauty of our soul shine forth, so that others can see in us the fingerprints of God.”
Mr. Robinson emphasizes the constant and enduring presence of God in our lives, and he encourages us to turn to the comfort available through the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acknowledging the struggles inherent in everyday life, he reminds us of God’s providence:
In all of this, despair not, my friend, for everything that is begun,
It also will come to an end…
Just learn to bend with Life’s wind,
And trust in your Creator.
