A Resting Place: #WritePhoto-Tranquil

I walked through the magnificence of the forest,

Seeking a tranquil place to sit and reflect.

I found a well-hidden spot through the trees

That in its solitude and beauty was perfect.

There was a cleared space next to the water.

Everything had a lovely purple sheen.

It felt like a place reserved for royalty,

One of the loveliest places I’ve seen.

As I sat in the calmness of this grassy den,

I was reminded of my Savior’s request:

Come unto me, all you who labor and

Are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

It was a moment that I didn’t want to end,

For there I felt that my spirit had soared.

Beside the still waters, I talked with Jesus,

And my soul was rested and restored.

  1. I love this photo. At first glance the trees had shades of lavender throughout them, and yet, looking again they appeared brown. It was like a quick glance of heaven in the midst of the day
