Ethereal Etheree

Joy

I find

when my mind

is focused on

the glory of You.

Your love and mercy

saturate my being.

Cares and worries of the day

are miraculously fleeing.

Once again, I receive a jump start

as Your sweet presence penetrates my heart.

Isaiah 26:3  Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.  

1Chronicles 16:27  Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place.
