Soul’s Joy

This is my kitchen unkempt-

yet my morning sanctuary.

I sit with full cup of coffee in hand

While children and husband sleep

And it’s here I soak it in-




I melt in His presence.

He feeds my famished soul.

farmhouse kitchen

I feel my God so close.

Takes my breath away.

The air is weighty

The presence thick.

This radiant, all-consuming love.

Soul’s joy.

flowers on island

May He appear unmistakably in every place we go.

With love,
