Weekend Away - Poem by Christopher Ridgeway

Early morning hours, darkness
Broken by gentle beams from the sun streaking across the sky
Signaling daybreak to the weary head lifting off the pillow
The sound of the river in the distance
Reminds me of my location in Gods untouched wilderness
There is a pleasant echo of bird songs in the trees above me
Out of the tent, to welcome a beautiful Sunday
Away from the camp a few hundred yards to sit in solitude and reflect
Watching the steady rise of the sun
I pull my Bible from my back pocket
Taking a seat on a large outcropping of rock
Randomly I open the Good book
Amazed it opens straight to 1 Corinthians 13,
I sit and ponder will I live up to God's plan and live freely in His love
The path is there, laid in front of me
Branches of temptation are forever forking from it
God has handed me a gift of love, and he knows the path, all I need do is but follow
I will love Him because he first loved me
Nothing else is owed, deserved or expected
