by John Oxenham
'Mid all the traffic of the ways-
Turmoils without, within-
Make in my heart a quiet place,
And come and dwell therein:
A little shrine of quietness,
All sacred to Thyself,
Where Thou shalt all my soul possess,
And I may find myself;
A little shelter from life's stress,
Where I may lay me prone,
And bare my soul in loneliness,
And know as I am known;
A little place of mystic grace,
Of self and sin swept bare,
Where I may look upon Thy face,
And talk with Thee in prayer.

Beautiful, CyberCelt! That final stanza sure speaks to me this a.m.! I hope you have a blessed Sunday and a wonderful week.
Gorgeous photo, and blessing to go with :) Have a great upcoming week my friend!
A perfect prayer and as Sue says, a lovely image to bring the point closer to home. Excellent BYB posting!
In our busy and noisy lives, a quiet place is something we all need and if we can find that in our hearts- nothing better!
Have a great week ahead!
Such a heartfelt prayer, CyberCelt! I love it. Especially the 3rd stanza.
Have a great week ahead and God bless!
Oh yes! We all need this kind of quiet time with HIM. Before the photo downloaded, I thought maybe you had a bench with a view of flowers. . . guess that was just all in my own mind since that is how I picture a quiet place.
feel at peace just reading this =)
Blessings! Have a great week
