In the Stillness of the Morning

Our Weekend Memoirs


Scenic Sunday


I woke up to a cold and foggy Sunday morning. Just before the sunrise, I went outside and stood by the small lake gazing at the ducks swimming to and fro the waters.

Thank you, Lord, for a beautiful morning.




In the stillness of the morning,
Far away from all the noise
I feel the peace enfold me,
As I listen for His voice







It flows down from the mountain
And across the crystal lake
It understands no barrier
As my tension it seeks to take










It steals me from my anger
And puts my mind at ease
And I'm aware of nothing except
This still, small, quiet peace













It moves me beyond the words
I watch flow from my pen
And I feel a certain gratitude;
This peace is my best friend.










I do all I can to protect it
And I cherish the time we share
And as I watch the sun come up,
It's for peace I say a prayer













Oh, Lord, please give to everyone
Who is going through some pain
A portion of this joy within;
May peace forever reign!
