Psalm 65: 8

Those who live at the edge of the earth stand in awe of your wonders.  From where the sun sets to where the sun rises, you inspire shouts of joy!

I am blessed here where I live, near the West Shoreline of Florida.  I can look out from my lanai and see the splendor of the night sky running to greet me.  And when I awaken, the lazy morning sun pours down on me as I listen to the grass grow ~ and I know that all peace reigns in my corner of the world

Thank you, Dear Lord, that you are but a prayer away…that you hear us when we call…and that sometimes, when we are too weak to verbalize a request or statement, you hear us when we are silent, just seeking your presence, just whispering your name.  Thank you, Lord, with my heart filled with gratitude.





A poem of peace and God’s quiet assurance


Listen to the Quiet…

I love this moment in time ~

Weeping willows dancing in sweet abandon

against an azure sky

Tomorrow will wait…

An oriole walks on the grass to my porch

and chirps a song

written just for me –

This moment knows no sorrow

Raindrops slide down my face and

hush speaks sleep to the pond

Listen to the sweet, sweet sound of silence –

No cares – no strife

Not here

during this moment of quiet splendor…

Only Jesus – only sunshine –  a cool breeze

Sunshine and dew drops and peace….

At this moment in time…

Listen to the Quiet…

He is everywhere.
