A PATH IN THE WOODS

Meander along a path through the woods
and listen to nature . . . the handiwork of God . . .

Hear the birds singing in the trees . . .
try to find the way where the deer have trod. . .

Harken to waterfalls roaring over rocks
and the gurgling of the little streams . . .

Find a big lichen-coverd rock or log
where you can sit and pleasantly dream . . .

Your worries will melt and fade away
Your heart and mind will be quietly at ease . . .
because nature's sweet solitude . . .
is restful, calming and full of peace!

  9. God's handiwork always brings us peace and calm. It's a shame that many ppl dun realise that and seek peace and calm through chaotic ways.

    Huggggggggz! This is beautiful.

  24. Hi keshi
    Oh...you are so welcome!
    Was my advice ok?
    I hope so!
    I would not give him too many thoughts...if I were you!
    He is not true to himself or the girl he is going to marry!
    So, that tells you all you need to know...at least in my eyes!
    Hugggggz sweetie!
