A LONGING TO DRAW APART WITH YOU!

When autumn comes...
And nights draw in...
I draw the curtains 
And rejoice that for a time the world is shut out from within!

Not because I'm antisocial...
Or longing to be arrogantly 'set apart'.
No!  Somehow it triggers a longing,
Deep within my heart!

It's a longing to draw apart with You...
If only for a while!
To let You Recharge my spiritual 'batteries',
With Your Beauty, Grace and Tender Smile!

Yet... even in those winter months,
My heart knows a pain SO deep.
For those who have no home, or hearth, 
No knowledge of Your Love to keep!

Now the days are slowly lengthening,
Springtime is slowly... but surely... melting winter's icy grip away!
Which means that the hardest time of year for the homeless is past
And they too can enjoy the warmer sun's rays!

It means, for me, that my opportunities for roaming the hills opposite 
With Grace (our faithful dog) will increase again...
I can sing Your Praise, Worship You, and Talk to You
And my Freedom with You outdoors regain!
