While walking down the street,
I couldn’t help but feel peace,
listening to the rustling leaves

without the company of cars.
Then something pungent struck me,
so tangible, I could reach out

and touch…the fragrance of wealth,
and for a fleeting moment,
eyes slowly blinking,

I felt a sense of yearning.
Perhaps, there are those moments
where wishes aren’t so Heavenly,

but very earthly, indeed.
However, the hunger subsided
  as rapidly as it came to be

and I sighed, contentedly,
knowing God has provided me
with everything I truly need

  1. Any wish that comes from our hearts while in the center of celebrating God’s creation is absolutely pleasing to Him! Wonderful to have the privilege of walking with the Holy Spirit in His marvelous creation!

    This is so wonderful–I love the truth of the poem, and the photo; and I really like the new look of the blog, Lauren!!

  3. How lovely, Lauren. It is so true how blessed we are. In moments we were are certain we are lacking, it does not take but a small step in any direction to break the false perception. Great food for thought!


    1. Thanks, Red, for your lovely complement and also for your words of wisdom…it’s only human nature to have these moments, but it’s good to be able to realize they are false perceptions, as you mentioned! Hugs! ♥

  4. Very beautiful poem Lauren and I think all can relate to those moments. Yet, God does truly provide us with all we need, just as he promised. Stay blessed with that beautiful heart of yours. (missed you much and I’m back from my adventures)

    Lovely poem, Lauren … we were promised everything we need – not everything we want … as humans, we tend to forget that (even me, lol). Thank you for such as beautiful reminder that we are truly blessed. ~ Love, Julie xoxox

  6. Boy how I can relate….it is so very human and very normal….love how you opened up in it and softly conquered it with remembrance in the end…..I too, would never trade my little family and the peace and beauty of our country dwelling….so happy and inspired here, so thankful….
    love to you

    1. Thanks so much, Celeste, for reassuring me that these “moments” are normal and that I’m not alone. And yes, in the end, I’m more than grateful for my family and we, too, have a very cozy country dwelling. I’m happy to have been an inspiration to you! Love and hugs to you, too!

    1. Awww…Diane, I don’t know how I missed this, but was reading it this morning and saw your unacknowledged reply…so sorry, my friend, but thank you for your lovely words! Hugs and blessings to you! xo
