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.

Coming Home

My home patio

There’s no place like home

Monoku

Dorothy said it best: “ There’s no place like home”

I just got home from a 4 day visit to the coast, where I had a wonderful time sightseeing, spending time at the ocean beach collecting rocks and shells, meeting new people, eating great food staying at a wonderful Inn and just having a great adventure.

But, arriving home, walking into my cozy living room and relaxing on my comfy couch is the best feeling.

It’s nice to get away but it’s always good to come home.

And I am giving thanks this evening that I have a nice home to come to.

Resting in Him

Bible, coffee cup, Psalm 94:19 scripture

As my heart fills with perplexity

And threatens to overwhelm my soul

My minds fills with Your words to me

Comforting with precious

Promises so sweet

And remembrance

Of Your care

Towards

Me

Nonet

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 KJV

Take a Moment

Bench, Lavender flowering

Come and sit a spell

Take a time out today

For a flower smell

Drink in its fragrant perfume

Let the aroma quell

Your anxious heart today

Come and sit a spell

Take a time out today

Enjoy this moment in time
