The Pond

When the days get crazy and hectic

And my mind seems feels like it’s in a fog

I steal away

Not to a resort or hideaway at a beach

I grab a tackle box and a few reels

I take a short drive down a country road in an old Chevy

I pull up to my personal sanctuary the pond

Not a soul is there except for me and God

I bait the hook, cast the reel, and wait

As I wait for a bite, I have a talk with God

There I find peace and stillness

When the water is still

It looks like glass

I can be out there for hours and sometimes the amount I catch is small

Sometimes I may not catch anything

The time I spend with Jesus is worth it all

The pond is my sanctum

The pond is my comfort

It recharges me

It clears the fog

It rejuvenates my soul
