Thankful

 

A rooster crows in early morn;
a farmer gazes at the corn,
and sips his coffee in the breeze
beneath the calmly stirring trees.

There's mist on the horizon - still
that shrouds the forest on the hill;
he reckons that it is God's way
to introduce the coming day.

His gaze turns towards a well worn trail
he walks most mornings, without fail;
at end, there stands a mighty oak
that offers peace beneath its cloak.

The sunrise sets the field aglow
and gilds the trail, he loves so;
he sets aside his cares and woes
as down the meadow trail, he goes...

to rest awhile beneath the oak-
to pray and praise and touch the yoke
of God's unending blessed grace -
this is his land - this is His place.

 

John 7:53 and 8:1..."And every man went into his own house...Jesus went unto the mount of Olives
                                 to pray."  (It was the mind of Jesus to find a solitary place to pray.)

Matthew 11:29..."Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
                             and you will find rest for your souls."

(a couplet quatrain poem)
