" Be still my heart.....and know that I am God "


I walk across the deserted landscape of time

seeking that, which once was

all around a barren horizon

devoid of all meaning and rhyme

I move purposefully, through the waist high bracken


knowing I must remain, vital and young at heart


the snipe drums its welcoming call, in the heather


I have renewed spirit and soul, in my sinews


the voice within whispers, its glorious instruction


thou hast done well, my faithful son


for you have accepted, my word to the letter


and let me be the director, of your steps


that's what it takes, to be humble and contrite


as the tang of the restless sea, filled my veins


I see once again, those who have made me


their smiling eyes, gladden my senses


reminding me, over and over


never forget , who you really are

A beautiful offering...and a gentle reminder, that our true identity is in The Christ.

Altogether lovely...right down to the ferns, which made me think of the palm branches in Revelation 7:9

Bless you,Peter
Love, Rhonda

Enjoyed this old hymn came to mind as I read this one...One Day at A Time...we must take life one day at a time and ask the Lord to teach us to take our steps slowly and lean on him for he is the creator and the giver, and we must always remember that we are in his hands. Very inspiring write my friend, glad to see you back in the den.

Impressive look at life and living my friend and yes that is a lesson that is too often forgotten except perhaps by the common working man who struggles daily to make ends meet and keep his family safe and secure.

Sir Peter ...

At times it is good to be reminded that what we have done in our pursuits has been in accordance with the Fathers will for our lives. How easy it is to get waylaid!

Dear brother ... your disposition to be humble and your lack of false pride is clearly evident in this testament to your stance and love of Almighty God.

Light and Wisdom ...
