A Date With God

I’m so thrilled about my day
And I’d like to share it with you
It’s Sunday once again
I have a date with God, it’s true

I could go to church this morning
After breakfast with family
And after my visit with God
I’ll have the day just for me

Of course it does not have to be
In church to visit with God
I can talk to him anywhere I wish
Out in the yard in His precious sod

It doesn’t have to be Sunday either
It could be when I’m doing my chores
Wherever I find convenient
We can talk behind closed doors

Or out in the bright sunshine
Hey, it’s all just up to you
If you have something to say to Him
You can have a date with God too!

    Oh how I love the presence of the Lord. I feel Him all the time, and am privileged for the chance to interact with Him. This warms my heart. 10

    i like this poem too. People really need to realise this, i know some people who only know God on Sunday mornings. I don't like church munch because i always fall asleep, but God and I have dates all through the week. the difference between church goers and I, is that i know God all week long while they know him only on Sundays. This is a veyr important poem that i think a lot of people need to read.
    i thank you for writing it and sharing it as well, maybe just maybe it might get through to some people

    Well done, Marilyn. If only the world's religious leaders had the asense to realise that what you've written is how all religions should be practised. The tub-thumping twerps like that clot who's raving about Heath Ledger and the Muslim fanatic idiot fringe have turned the entire concept into a blood-drenched circus, and the other 'main-stream' cults are only a very short step behind them. You should send George W. Bush a copy of it.

    Cheers,

    Fatt Bob.

    No cathedral can compete with the
    splendor of nature…this is truly where
    God resides.
