Listening

Please leave your thoughts...I love when you do that!

Walking down a country road, seemingly alone~
Or sitting in a comfy chair poolside after noon~
Maybe washing dishes with no thoughts~
Or folding laundry, matching socks~
He is speaking wordlessly and now, without a doubt~
What weighed on me a moment ago is naught to worry about.

Blessings lurking all around~
Smiles and laughter always found~
Pain, enough to know tears will heal~
Scars, for reminders of how that feels~
He gives each a mixture though not always even~
He holds us close to him, we just have to listen.

It takes only silence and a willing ear~
His message comes through for all to hear.
