Haven of Rest

Garden bench under the pine trees

Come sit awhile

On the comfy garden bench,

Neath’ the tall pine trees.

Let the sun melt away your cares.

Close your eyes and rest.

Nature’s tranquility

Will refresh your soul,

And you will leave renewed

To face another day of life.

Come and See

Garden angel statue with Welcome sign

He offers abundance

To those who will believe

All are welcome

Come and see the works of God; He is awesome in His deeds toward the children of men” Psalm 66:5 AMP

Times of Refreshment

Refresh yourselves

Come all you who thirst

All are welcome

Refresh yourselves

With the living water

Only He provides

Syllabic Verse

“…Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

June’s Invitation

June’s fourth is calling me to “Come!
Visit before this day is done,
See the beauty created for you,
Smell the flowers, enjoy the sun.”

Yet, indoor tasks are pressing me
To focus on the mundane.
What shall I do? A choice is due,
For this June day will not come again.
