Sitting on hilly green grass.
Such a peaceful time.
Air fresh and cool.
Quiet, except the birds’ chimes.
With Bible in hand,
Looking up Psalm 23,
Just God and me.
Reading and pondering:
My Defender and Guide –
My Good Shepherd, God.
His rod and staff alongside.
Leaving this place and moment.
Precious and so compelling.
I go into my day.
Close to God dwelling.

Remembering those quiet times in the morning when I attended Bible Camp, we young campers went to different areas and read and meditated on God’s Word. It was such a wonderful way to start the day feeling so close to God.
I really appreciate my followers and others who have stopped by this site. May God richly bless you!
