In These Moments

As I walk in the woods, in these moments of birds in the leaves

there is a stillness within, listening

and somehow, like nowhere else

I’m drawn in

closer to knowing

some type of presence,

a tangible, formerly unknown

as if God is walking in the forest

with me.

  1. Beautiful green jungle to view 🌷🙏 very difficult to see birds ,
    Tree’s branches and leaves awesome and written lines so true
    That we trust God is there 🙏👌 grace wishes 👏

  2. That gave me shivers because you described the feeling I often had when I was in the forest all by myself. I felt like being surrounded by something strong and good… wow, that hit home.

  3. Can I say “Hallelujah”? Lovely lines as always, and oh yes–wherever we’re walking HE’s walking with us. He walked with the first couple, back in the Garden…but it’s so much better now, with the New Covenant (my opinion) 🙂 Blessings to you and your family ❤

    1. Thank you Zelda and yes you can say hallelujah! The word simply means praise be to God. What a blessing your comments are! I was thinking of the Garden when I wrote this. Peace and wonderful blessings to you.
