I walked the road to my place of residence today,
Thinking things through, then I began to pray.
I thanked God for the beauty this day brought,
Hearing the birds, smelling the air and reminiscing in thought.
I remembered the times walking with my Mom,
Trudging through the snow amongst the trees so calm.
The beauty of the country was one you can't afford,
Seeing the wonderful performance by our Lord.
God has made the world in seven wonderful days,
He took his time in making it, each item in phase.
If we take just a moment of time now and then,
He would be so proud knowing we remembered Him.
So for the beauty of this earth and its surroundings,
Take a walk just to see all the remarkable things.
Remember they were all created from heart especially for us,
So enjoy every pleasant thing in thought - not fuss.
