House

Advent word of the day: House

 

He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.” Matthew 21:13

 

Each morning, I enter the house of the Lord

As I awaken, God is with me

The air I breath, the birds I hear

As I walk through his garden

My yard of flowers and rustic plants

I am in awe of His beauty

Birds feeding from the feeders

Squirrels and groundhogs

Nibbling on the seeds the birds fling to the ground

His kingdom is all around

His kingdom is within me

my body is His temple

it is the house

within which

He dwells
