    A most comforting write and video Brian. There is urgency in quenching our thirst, though the hymn goes at steady pace, expressive of longing and yearning I believe.
    You 'thirsting' for me to sing it? It may seem more like a drought if I do. heehee.
    An animal, a deer here, can give the 'ahh factor' but we know it's more than being sentimental.


      THANKS UNCLE STEVE ~ The correct spacing has been restored ! Thanks for your encouraging comments. Jim Reeves sings a Song about an Old Man who was thrown out of the Choir because he croaked ~ and then He did. BUT when he got to HEAVEN he sang like a ANGEL and GOD put Him in His Heavenly Choir ! God hears you singing as mellow as JIM ~ AMEN. This hymn & poem is based on PSALM 42. Yours as always BRIAN

      Good write and a great tune.

      I think you may have incorrectly ticked haiku as the type of poem.

          HOLA ANGEL ~ Es muy verdad ! Someone said "Absence makes the Heart grow Fonder ~ It can also cause the Mind to Wander". Pleased you liked it ~ BAMBIES are very smoochy ! Yes it is your turn next week but we will expect something in MAORI ! It was a BAPTISM this morning and one of them was disabled ~ very moving ! Miss you lots ~ the problem is my BODY is in Essex (UK) but my MIND (and my ANGEL) is in Auckland (NZ) Thanks for commenting on everyones Poems today. Sleep tight talk in the Morning.

          For me, Nature is God so this one works for me Brian!

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            THANKS LAURA ~ Pleased you liked it ! Look @ Venus & Mars ~ Both bare and barren ~ no oxygen and only a trace of water. Inhospitable ~ unihabitable ~ no Life & no Love ! The EARTH is between BUT it is totally different It is the ONLY LIVING PLANET in the Solar System and (thus far) in the Milky Way ! It is LIFE ~ The Flora & The Fauna & Insectivora & Microorganisms that cause & control the Atmosphere and maintain Earths ambient temperature @ 16C. The control is maintained by complex Mineral Cycles (water - oxygen - carbon - nitrogen etc) and complex Food Chains & Food Webs ! All these processes existed before MAN and would continue if the HUMAN RACE died out ! Science cannot answer the Questions ~ When - Where - Why & How did life appear ? Neither can it answer the Question ~ Where did the matter in the Physical Universe originate from ? I have studied Studied (& Taught) Science for over 20 Years and for me (and millions of others) there is only one rational answer ~ GOD DID IT ~ AMEN. That is why the first verse in the Bible reads 'In the beginning GOD created the Heavens & the Earth'. The rest of the Bible (The Word of GOD) follows from that ~ OK. Consequently ALL NATURE is God's Handiwork ! Without GOD there would be NO UNIVERSE ~ NO LIVING PLANET EARTH ~ NO Bambies and NO You & Me ~ OK. Yours as always BRIAN !

            If god is another word for nature it works for me as well.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ Pleased you enjoyed the Video ~ Visual & Sentiment. LORNA posed the same QUESTION so in my answer to her I have answered YOU as well ~ please consult. My PROVISO is GOD can exist without NATURE & the Physical UNIVERSE ~ BUT ~ they cannot (and would not ) exist without a Creator God. I have has the privilege to study the Physical & Biological Sciences (and also teach) since 2001 and I still cannot answer (neither can Scientists) the questions of ORIGINS I posed in my answer to LORNA. If DAWKINS was SURE the answers lie in a Primeval Bonfire Night (BIG BANG) or Protoplasm in a Primeval Pool (Darwins phrase) he would have posted on the LONDON BUS ~ "There is NO GOD" NOT PROBABLY ! A priori it is equally PROBABLE (on the available evidence) that there IS A GOD ~ OK and that is where I stand ~ AMEN. It is a cyclic argument so in essence there is NO ANSWER and I and my fellow SCIENTISTS who are CHRISTIANS accept by FAITH that GOD not only created but also SUSTAINS the UNIVERSE 24/7. I rest my CASE ~ Your Good Friend as always BRIAN !

            • Maxine Smith

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                HOLA MAXINE ~ Gracias por tu commento ! Sunday is a day for uplifting each other Spiritually ! Love ~ Joy ~ Peace etc are all Fruit of the Spirit ! The closer we walk with GOD the more these traits are evident in our LIVES Besos y Abrazos de BRIAN y ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡
