Oh Lord,
on mornings
like these,
with sunlight
streaming through the window
forming dappled patches
on the braided rug,
with the singing of canaries
echoing throughout the house,
when I am sitting
cozy on my couch,
basking in Your Word,
I want to
shout for joy
in celebration
of Your presence.
- Joan Bond
