    Thank you Lord
    For quite days
    Days when I can relax and unwind
    Days when no one needs anything
    Days when the dishes don’t need to be washed
    The bed doesn’t need to be made
    And the phone doesn’t ring
    Thank you Lord for my quite days
    Days when I can think
    Days when I can create pretty words
    Days when my thoughts form complete sentences
    Thank you Lord
    For these quite days
    Days when poetry flows through my veins
    And out of my pen
    With ease and grace
    Days when the sun shines after a nice long rainstorm
    And I hear nothing
    Nothing
    Nothing but quite
    Thank You Lord
    For the quite days
    Days like today
    Days like yesterday
    And I hope
    Days like tomorrow
    Thank You Lord
    For a quite day
    A day that does not need to be filled
    A day that does not require anything from me
    A day when all that is heard is quite
    Silence
    Peace
    Thank You Lord
    For the quite days

    This brought the peace....

    Thank you for the reminder to my soul that I must ever give praise and thanks to the Lord for each day He give me breath...and to be careful to devote my quiet time for spiritual/mental refreshing, while meditating on His goodness....

    Scribe! :heart:

    BLESSED QUIETNESS, HOLY QUIETNESS!

    As I read this piece/peace it reminded me of a hymnal we use to sing when I was a young girl. "Blessed Quietness, Holy Quietness!" Brings assurance to my soul, on the stormy seas, Jesus speaks to me and the billows cease to roll...
    Thanks for sharing this meditative peace!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
