Welcome, we are having a different tea & reflection time together today, it has been raining here for three weeks now with some mighty powerful storms passing through, with only three days of sunshine in between.
I have a Gf Apple Strudel cake with homemade lemon butter ready…. with a cup of lemon grass tea or if you would prefer, I do have coffee.
I have found that the flavors of Apple & lemon are great companions & they don’t disappoint, today’s cake is particularly moist & delicious, the lemon grass tea is both home grown & brewed.
I thought we would have a simple time of reflection with a poetry reading…
Rain by Jennifer
- Rain, rain, rain & more rain!
- Wind blowing strong,
- Chilling cold creeping into bones,
- Chattering teeth,
- Muscles tense & shivering,
- Increasing cold, cold & freezing!
- Warmth introduced,
- Spreading through,
- Muscles relax,
- Cold decreasing,
- Warm, warmer, warmest…
On a cold, windy & rainy day we seek a warm sheltered place & a hot cuppa…Don’t we…to bring warmth & comfort to our bodies…which brings a sense of wellbeing to us, as we thaw from our exposure to bad weather.
Let’s change the poem now to the times when we are in the midst of a soul storm & exposed to life’s battering & heartache;
Stress by Jennifer
- Stress, stress, stress & more stress,
- Wrenching soul winds blowing,
- Anxiety creeping into heart places,
- Wrestling sleep,
- Increasing worry, worry & more worry!
- Jesus introduced,
- Spreading His Spirit through,
- Heart places relax,
- Anxiety, stress & worry decreased,
- Peace, peace, perfect peace…
We need to seek a sheltered place for our souls too…Don’t we? And to drink the continual cup of love that is available to us…to bring comfort to our weathered souls…
Which brings a sense of spiritual wellbeing as we restore from the exposure to life’s battering…
Let us ask ourselves, in this time of poetic reflection…Where are we seeking shelter for our souls when facing life’s storms….in things, people or in the One who can truly bring peace to our weary souls…Jesus. He said;
“Come to me all those of you who are weary & burdened & I will give you rest [for your souls].”
Matthew 11: 28
I enjoyed sharing our poetry reading together today, our delicious treat & cuppa are now finished…
But you’re welcome to stay & linger awhile dear friend & enjoy my reflection in Home sweet home…
Until next time…
