"And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance forever."
A life needs days of retirement, when it shuts the gates upon the noisy whirl of action and is alone with God.
I need wide spaces in my heart
Where faith and I can go apart
And grow serene.
Life gets so choked by busy living,
Kindness so lost in fussy giving,
That love slips by unseen.
I want to make a quiet place
Where those I love can see God's face,
Can stretch their hearts across the earth,
Can understand what Spring is worth,
Can count the stars,
Watch violets grow,
And learn what birds and children know.
Joy comes in life from knowing God.
That's the plain and simple truth.
I always ponder His presence this time of year.
The purest definition of my faith.
Loving and Living Life................. Amanda
