After doing some cleanup inside, I decided to enjoy some time on the porch. I love the views we have.
Being outdoors is refreshing and helps to calm me. Click To Tweet The temperature was mild and the sky was overcast, though some blue was peeking through. A light breeze was causing lovely sounds to come from the chimes. I had to snap a few pictures.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. (Psalm 19:1-2)
When I came back inside, I felt relaxed and happy. As I looked at the pictures I wrote some poetry in the form of haiku. I hope you enjoy them and find some time in your day to relax a bit outside if the weather permits.
Front Porch Views
Bunny sits and stares
From his place on my front porch
Does he wish for life?
Here I sit alone
In my wooden rocking chair
Taking in the view
Peaceful and serene
Time to write and contemplate
While I take a rest
Silly, furry cat
Pushing on my journal hard
Wants to take its place
Sitting outside, listening and observing reminds me of the power of God and His handiwork. May we all find time each day to pause and praise our Creator who gives us life and hope! Click To Tweet
Shout for joy to God, all the earth!
Sing the glory of his name;
make his praise glorious.
Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds!
So great is your power
that your enemies cringe before you.
All the earth bows down to you;
they sing praise to you,
they sing the praises of your name.”
