After doing some cleanup inside, I decided to enjoy some time on the porch. I love the views we have.
[bctt tweet=”Being outdoors is refreshing and helps to calm me.” username=”GaylWright”] 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. [bctt tweet=”May we all find time each day to pause and praise our Creator who gives us life and hope!” username=”GaylWright”]
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.”
