    Shhh!
    Be quiet my soul.
    He makes His visit upon me,
    Like the mist of morning dew.

    Quiet now...my soul
    Let me immerse myself in His peace.
    Please don't fret.
    Be still,
    He hasn't finished yet.

    Quiet, be very quiet now...my soul

    Ahhhh...yessss.
    Close now...close now the door
    In the face of worry.

    Welcome Him, my soul.
    Yes, invite Him for He is
    My Lover.
    Relax now, you can trust Him.
    He will not hurt me,
    Nor will He abandon me...my soul.

    Quiet now, yessss, quiet now...my soul.

    aaahhh yes!

    this 'peace' is reminiscent of two powerful songs/poems I've loved for years.... one scribed by King Solomon himself in his song book (the entire book of his songs)...

    and the other, part of a chorus from an oldtime gospel ("Precious Memories") ... "in the stillness, of the midnight, sacred secrets still unfold"...

    I'm feeling your spiritual flow. Thank you this evening, Joyce.

    I do love

    your soul food, sista Joyce. I know it's not meant to replace the living "Word"...but this is the kind of witness that can lead searching hearts straight to the Giver of the Peace that passes all understanding; to Truth.

    I am enjoying all your flows. I feel the Spirit moving in you.

    thank you

    Maggie
