A THOUGHT

Sometimes . . . when I walk alone at night
under the trees . . .
with the sky, star-sprinkled above me
I feel as tho' God were walking by my side . . .
I can hear His breath in the rustling leaves
His voice in the soft note of a sleepy bird . . .
and my heart within me throbs with joy
"Oh God," I whisper
"I thank Thee that I live!"

  3. I think that the first time I ever truly experienced God was outdoors on a cloudless night, many years ago, walking alone and looking up at the cosmos. I felt so small and yet so much a part of it all...

  4. this is so true.
    sometime when I feel lonely, I always tell myself that god is with me, am not alone.

  5. We all come on the mother earth~but very few are enlightened enough to ask the questions you asked in this poem of yours.~Only a pure & humane heart can ask such...:)
    Take Care Margie.

  40. Hi margie,
    My visits to blogger have greatly reduced now, as college has started. But each time I feel sad, or need an encouragement to lift my spirits, I know where I have to come to.
    Your this poem has truly touched my heart.
    I needed a friend today, and i just overlooked God, who was there beside me all day long!!!

    Thank you margie!!!

    preetha!

  41. This is beautiful....often we forget God is there walking along side, I often have been touched by the softness of a breeze gently brushing my face...and my heart beats loudly with His love...

  42. Margie, this is a poem I wrote in August 2006..thought I would share it with you..It is on my musings site for August ... this was the day my love for God would never leave me..

    I thought I was dreaming…
    God came to me, and spoke; He whispered in my ear,
    “Hush be still.” Then a silence came over me.
    This has to be a dream…this is not real….
    I saw Him everywhere; in the trees, in the sky, in the beautiful winter’s day…
    I heard Him in the crunchy, dry grass, in the pine needles as they tinkled…
    I was touched by God,
    I felt the gentleness of a soft breeze, which touched my face…
    The breeze so close I could taste it…magical.
    No, this was no dream,
    It was too powerful.
    I knew God was here; my heart pounding I could feel His love;
    I had been lifted up…filled up.
    Look around you God IS here....

    Now this happened afterwards, as I was returning to my car there was a stationary "mr whippy" van displaying a sign "Jesus Saves"
