Quiet Time


*Pastor’s Note: Sister Joan Adams Burchell was one of the first Sisters to ever let me use her poetry on my first websites. Every now and then I look back into my archives to see what I have left for this site and I am always blessed by what I find. She has a website, Along Poetry Road that is still up and running with a lot of great poetry. When you have a chance, stop by and check her selections out. You will be blessed!

As always, Glory to God for all of the creative gifts He gives so bountifully and for those who use those gifts. God Bless!

jb 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.
