I - AM - CONTENT - TO - STAY .

"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""


 Written 13 th January 2013 .


In the quiet of the evening - my heart is calm and still -
After the hustle and bustle of life - has left its footprint
Of  experience on the doormat - where this wanderer's 
Boots remain - but  - whose feet no longer fill.
No longer yearning to go here or there - to foreign climes.
But content to stay - and be a flower in the home patch 
Now - to help those in this needy place - and times .
But - no need for sorrow or regret  - 
This is not loss or backward step - to want 
To sit at Homely's door - 
As there are those who are adventuring - with
Compass set - for far off  Isles - and distant shore -
Who may not feel the need to stay at home - and 
Bend the knee - for those  close by - as I do now .
But - all is well  - and all in all - I am content - yet 
Not in passive inactivity - for this to be -
But - such is my lot  - and therein I can rest -
With all the Good Lord has bestowed  -
with love - on me.

""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

Sometimes the Lord would have us venture

far for Him , but sometimes He would have 
us stay and blossom in our own back yard .
But, wherever He may place us He wants
us to be content .


God bless you all with peace today 

with love from Stella x
