focusone word friday's


It is quite in this place.

The comfy chair, my nest, my man calls it.

It is the place where I meet with God.

Still early and dark.

Open his Word, open my heart.

Though it is quiet, save the soft ticking of the clock;

There is noise everywhere…

The stack of books calling my name,

E~mails, full of wisdom and godly things, they are a form of busyness here, loud.

Adds of sales, the greed in me takes in.

The real food,

It sets, heavy and marked up, in my lap.

I loose my focus on the reason I am here.

To listen

To learn

To wait for provision and filling.

Graced by God
