Walking through my neighborhood
Then down a lovely country road
I see the wonders God has made
And everything is good!
The air smells sweet after the rain.
The sun's majestic in the sky.
Along this lonely, tree-edged lane
I feel God's presence nigh.
This is the place my soul bares all
To Him who knows me best.
Here no one sees my teardrops fall
Here's where my heart finds peace and rest.
I pray for my dear loved one's here,
Bring them before His throne.
God answers prayers in His time
As I my needs make known.
I listen to His still, small voice
As silently I walk.
When He sends tests along life's way
It is with Him I talk.
When I am stressed, He is my strength,
My refuge when in pain.
When I am anxious He's my calm
His peace hugs me again.
Each step I take along this path
I feel His love and care.
We'll walk together God and I
In sweet communion there.

Isn't it just amazing Karin how much beauty is just right around the corners from us?????? I love that path. I'm sure it is a good place to commune with God.

Have a great weekend.

I think that when we are in nature, near the sky, near the trees, near the mountains...we hear the voice of God so much louder. :)

This sounds like one of the Psalms! Great poem.

Nothing like enjoying the beauty of God's creation to get a great conversation started with the Lord! I do the same myself.

God is SO good, and sometimes He draws us aside to commune with Him. How precious prayer is ~ a 24hour/7day line directly to heaven!
