Nature’s Song

The leaves bristle in the wind
And crunch under foot.

The water splashes,
The acorns thud
As they hit the ground.
The birds sing,
The crickets chirp.
The frogs croak,
The critters chatter and frolic.

These are the sounds
In the busyness of life
That I fail to notice
Are all around me.

Instead I hear
The humming of the cars,
The ringing of the phone,
The chatter of the television,
And the mumbling of voices.
All designed to drown out
The song of nature.

In the peacefulness of nature,
I hear the subtle sound
Of praise.
All of nature cries out
Glory to the Lord.
In perfect harmony,
They worship.

For a brief moment,
I pause,
And join in
nature’s song.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try to believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you.
