~ I Could Tell
As I wandered in just now
I left my gateway swinging wide,
For I could tell you walked with me
And wished to come inside.
I walked slowly, our steps to be in tune
We touched the gentle blooms,
And stooped to enjoy their fragrance
It was as if you knew.
We listened to the fountain
Trickling softly on the stones,
Pausing to watch the birds at play
And we were not alone.
We heard the whisper in the wind
Jesus feet upon the steps,
His love billowed there among us
And we were content.
Just as I swept inside
A tiny feather fell...I held it to my heart,
A gift...of that perfect love He gave
I could tell.....

Dear Lord Jesus, abide with us; inspire all
our thoughts; pervade our imaginations; suggest
all our decisions; order all our doings. Be with
us in our silence and in our words, in our haste
and in our leisure, in company and in solitude,
in the freshness of the morning and in the
stillness of the evening; and give us grace at
all times humbly to rejoice in your beautiful
