Just Walking and Talking with Jesus


There are times

When the blues

Come upon me so discovered a great way

To make my day


Venture out into nature

Pick a path

That brings contentment

Venture forth with Jesus by your side


Down the path I go

I see laughing children at play

Jesus I say what a joy it is

To see them all so happy


I don’t expect an answer

But I know my companion

Is surely listening

And that is enough for me


We walk on

At both sides of the road

Trees are whispering

In the gentle breeze


And I say

Jesus how wonderful it is

That when the wind blows through the trees

It’s as if they have found a voice


I can hear their whispers

And even if I don’t understand

It makes me feel so much closer

To the mighty trees


Soon birds fill the skies

And I look at their majestic flight

They spread their wings

And soar with ease


Jesus how great it is

That you’ve created birds

That can soar to the highest heights

Which I can never achieve


The sun grows a bit warmer

And I can imagine

My understanding and patient companion

Smiling at simple me


Down by the river

Where the Daugava flows swiftly

I see upon the choppy waves

Seagulls bobbing


And I say, Jesus how lovely the river looks

Sun reflecting tiny diamonds on the water

The seagulls in contentment

Swinging upon the waves


Wonder what it would be like

If I could join them

Perhaps become light as a feather

And dance across the river


As always I marvel at the clouds

There up above

Sailing across the skies

In different shapes and sizes


Jesus how wonderful it is

To gaze at the clouds

I see so many wondrous things there

Sometimes people, sometimes creatures


Jesus could it be

That when I see faces

They are those of my dear ones

Looking down on me?


We move onwards

And soon I’m back home

Suddenly my mood has changed

And a burden has been lifted


I feel good again

And I say, thank you Jesus

For taking the time

To walk and talk with me for awhile


Never expecting to get an answer

I know He understands

But then the clouds shift

And a brighter warmer light appears


I know my companion

Has heard all I’ve said

I know He’s glad I found the comfort

I needed through Him

A beautiful thought of a walk with our Saviour. Living righteously we are given, through baptism and confirmation, the gift of having the Holy Ghost as our constant companion to inspire and direct in safe paths of value to God. Gaining that, believers gain joy and purpose in life. May God's richest blessings be yours.

Hello Gypsy. I think I will do that as suggested a little more often, and when asked what I'm doing I'll reply, exercising (the spirits under my breath) with a smile.
