A time to rest


As evening draws near 

The body waits in anticipation

Rest arrives

It seems every motion ceases

As the soft caressing breeze

Wraps, runs over and lifts

The trees dance and flips their hair

Tweeting  or chirping 

which ever is heard

And the bones longs to lay 

And watch the sky’s motion

Fiery red strokes, dark blues 

and nameless colours sweep across

Setting sun, stars and moon

join the scenery

Bones turn subtle 

As heavy cloak falls away

Slipped off by windy hands

And rest settles down

​A Sabbath Evening

Evening came 

Off  we go 

to welcome the day of  rest

Walking…lying beneath the 

beautiful sky

As the cool air wraps and envelopes 

the senses

While the full round moon 

shimmers down  and isolated stars

 twinkle from a distance 

The white fluffy clouds like 

mountains stood aside letting the

 blue space alone. 

bask in it all as some tunes of 

praise to the MASTER ARTIST floats

 around.

Such beauty entrancing the being  

Unable to leave till I can leave
A Happy new month

A beautiful rest

A beautiful Sabbath eve

An Evening Sky, Music and Fellowship

On my way to a midweek service, the sky got my attention. I had to take pictures. I always told myself that God is the master artist with a paint brush and the sky, His drawing board. The evening skies are a scenery.

So I finally got to church and we sang some hymns before the brief encouragement .

 Below are some of the beautiful hymns sung that Wednesday evening worship.

SDAH 8– We Gather Together

1

We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing;

He chastens and hastens His will to make known.

The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing.

Sing praises to His Name; He forgets not His own.

2

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,

Ordaining, maintaining His kingdom divine;

So from the beginning the fight we were winning;

Thou, Lord, were at our side, all glory be Thine!

3

We all do extol Thee, Thou leader triumphant,

And pray that Thou still our defender wilt be.

Let Thy congregation escape tribulation;

Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!

SDAH 51 – Day Is Dying in the West

Day is dying in the west;

Heaven is touching earth with rest;

Wait and worship while the night

Sets the evening lamps alight

Through all the sky.

Refrain

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of Hosts!

Heaven and earth are full of Thee!

Heaven and earth are praising Thee,

O Lord most high!

2

Lord of life, beneath the dome

Of the universe, Thy home,

Gather us who seek Thy face

To the fold of Thy embrace,

For Thou art nigh.

3

While the deepening shadows fall,

Heart of love enfolding all,

Through the glory and the grace

Of the stars that veil Thy face,

Our hearts ascend.

4

When forever from our sight

Pass the stars, the day, the night,

Lord of angels, on our eyes

Let eternal morning rise

And shadows end.

SDAH 221 – Rejoice, the Lord Is King

1

Rejoice, the Lord is King! Your Lord and King adore!

Rejoice, give thanks, and sing and triumph evermore

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

2

Jesus, the Savior, reigns, The God of truth and love;

When He had purged our stains, He took His seat above

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

3

His kingdom cannot fail, He rules o’er earth and heaven

The keys of death and grave Are to our Jesus given

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

4

Rejoice in glorious hope! Our Lord the judge shall come,

And take His servants up To their eternal home

Lift up your heart, lift up your voice!

Rejoice, again I say, rejoice!

Refresh

​Watching the white clouds move 

slowly  quietly across the dark 

almost starless sky             

Just as days pass by and day’s 

troubles stealthily disappear 

so let heart rest its restlessness 

for no point poisoning its self for 

anything      

Let the day carry its issues without 

being added to     

Let it sway away  treading the steps 

of the clouds leaving the dark sky 

bare while wind wipe away wear and

tear for tomorrow is another day
