SOLITUDE’S TREASURES

Sometimes I need to be quiet
so that I can hear my heart speak.
Activities, noise, busy-ness and such
Make it hard to feel and see.

It’s when I take time to listen
And ponder each intimate word,
That the gentle voice of solitude
Whispers sweetly and is heard.

Oh to know her words of wisdom;
To be able to understand;
To become deeply acquainted
With god and His loving plan.

For such treasures I draw aside
With joy and anticipation
I give to God my own agenda,
I join Him with elation.

Ah, to dwell with such companions
Is greater than riches and fame!
To enter into love, hope and peace;
To worship His Holy name.

So I enter into silence,
To tryst with the friend of my soul;
To hear the melodies of Heaven
And know that, in Him, I’m whole.

About lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.
