From my Seat on My Deck






From My Seat On My Deck

my neighbor is singing
his kiddos are playing
another neighbor is mowing
i hear a rooster crowing
the wind chimes are chiming
means the wind is stirring
the waterfall is soothing
the fish are busy swimming

so what is the message
coming from this place
our God is in His heaven
and all is in His embrace

but is anybody listening
to the message I hear from above
does anybody feel the grace
swirling all around this hub

i like to think they feel the peace
that comes from knowing that
they go about their business
trusting in His care of us.

Just ran across this poem today. I remember the day I wrote it. You can see it was June of last year. So grateful for a lovely neighborhood and surroundings.

What a nice poem and good advice. It's easy to get carried away with everyday chores, but when the day is done and it's time to go to bed, I hope everyone takes a moment to thank Him for his blessings.

Have a great week!
