Quiet Time


I like to sit in my favourite spot at my favourite time of day

and see the beauty all around and enjoy it in my own way.

I shut out any noise, as if I had a lock and key,

so everything is quiet and there's just my God and me.

The flowers are like the coloured robe that Joseph used to wear,

and it's when I see this beauty I know my troubles I can bear;

for I am never really 'alone', when all is said and done.

I know that God is with me in the day and after the sun

has set to give us rest and strength; and moon and stars will shine

and keep us under watchful eye - they are yours and they are mine.

I like to sit in my favourite spot at my favourite time of day

and give my prayer of thanks to God for walking with me today.
