It is through reflection, in stillness,
That we think of GOD and feel HIS closeness!
It is by spending time with GOD,
Pondering on the teachings of HIS HOLY WORD,
That God can establish a channel for HIS Divine
Love and Grace to flow to and through us to others!
Distracted and exhausted by our constant busyness,
We run helter-skelter, like a mouse on a treadmill,
Seeking happiness through pleasures of self-will;
Meeting futility in our vain pursuits!
More and more, we unconsciously grow distant,
As we forget that GOD is vitally important,
As the Creator-Source of true joy and peace!
