ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
Gliding through the morning waters, watching as the sun breaks through,
All alone as diamonds glisten, dancing in the morning dew,
Slicing through the still clear water, searching for the perfect place,
Never hearing sounds that haunt you, feel the wind upon your face.
Leaving all your cares behind you, stealing just a little time,
Grabbing comfort where you find it, carving out a place sublime,
When your life is complicated, faltering you soon will drown,
When you’re base is God’s foundation, you will surely come around.
When you glide through roughest waters, leaving caution to the wind,
Caring not for intervention, even when your heart has sinned,
That’s the time to trust in Jesus, He will never let you fall,
He’s the rock of your salvation, He has born the sins of all.
God will captain your adventure, He is with you all the way,
Even in your recreation, He’ll be with you as you play,
Life’s too short to drift and flounder, take some time to contemplate,
Get away from all the pressure, bait your line then sit and wait.
