A country Morning
Welcome to a country morning sunny and bright|
See the blue bird take flight
And a gentle breeze rustle the leaves
While the squirrels chatter in the trees.
A morning peaceful and still
To commune with my Creator seeking His Will
Opening my heart with Him to share
Knowing He is ever present my burdens to bear.
Just to linger a while
Breathing the fresh country air
and seeing beauty all around
Brings to my face a smile.
The middle of the morning I see
And hardly anything stirring
Though I hear the wings of a bumblebee whirring
I relax knowing all is well with me.
No need to bustle about just now
On this beautiful country morning
But longing to spend time just being
All the wonders of creation seeing.
Solitude is wonderful I find
Time to examine my heart and mind
Casting out anything unclean
With a pure heart to my Savior I cling
And His praises sing.
I see a car go by
And hear an airplane in the sky
My neighbor's voice across the way
Nothing unusual...just another wonderful country day.
