A perfect day is
One spent with the Lord
By praying and reading his word.
Seeing him in the glowing sunbeam
And hearing him whisper in the breeze.
Feeling his warmth surround your spirit and soul
As you quietly wander along the road.
Seeing him in the beauty of all creation;
In the forest, the shimmering sea, and the lofty mountains.
It is hearing him in the songbirds’ sweet melodies
And in the rushing currents of the river stream;
When you quietly sit and gladly take a rest
Letting this day heal you with gentle peacefulness.
It is not worrying about the duties of tomorrow
Or regretting the past in deep sorrow.
It is not worrying about those who don’t understand or don’t like you
Because they don’t really know your inner beauty or unique attributes.
Instead it is a day of thankfully remembering
That the Lord’s love for you is never ending.
It is a day of enjoying many precious moments
Unhurried and allowing time to slow down a bit.
It is not a day of fear or dread; nor of stressing
But instead a time of seeing hidden blessings.
Hearing a favorite tune wafting through the air
And suddenly realizing an answered prayer.
The perfect day is one set aside just for you and the Lord;
Relishing in his presence, his love, and the hope he gives forevermore.
