October Evening

October Evening— Dinner is cleared, No one is waiting, Nothing pressing to address. So I light a scented candle, Set the kettle to boil, Turn on the tunes of days gone by. Finding his favorites, Earl Grey or Southern Sweet Iced Tea, Sweets & treats made fresh from the morning. It’s only the gift of time, A few moments shared, With the love of my life. We will forever remember, And ever treasure, In this crisp, cool evening. There is beauty to be found, In orange slice cookies, walnut fudge, Conversation and tea with thee. ***What would be your perfect “October Evening” and how will you take time to spend with the one you love today? #Autumn #Fall #October #Memories #Poetry

October Dreams

With both hands I grasp a teacup, Warm and familiar feeling, The scent I breathe in deep. The house is still and silent, Only He, the tea and I, Before the sun arises, it is our time. In adoration, I dedicate the day, To ask with prayer and waiting, “Together, what have we to do?” Honorable men set goals for life, Plans for the future, To name and declare a thing. But the highest goals & dreams I’ve found, Reside here in the waiting, His Word never disappoints. I always find an answer, In these moments with tea & stillness, Between me, my Lord and I. ***What dreams has God placed on your heart in the waiting? How will you spend time with Him this fall?
