“SHHH”, my friend said as we sat in that tree.
“Can you hear it, it’s coming, and soon we will see,
But we must be so quiet or we’ll not see at all,
And move we dare not, lest to the ground we fall”.
I used to go hunting both for ducks and for deer.
Through the rain and snow, there wasn’t much fear.
The thrill of the hunt and the conquer of game.
The stories we’d tell would give us some fame.
We took it quite seriously, those days from the past.
But the memories we made, forever should last.
From generation to generation we passed them along.
I write them in words and then maybe a song.
Relationships built and much mentoring done.
It was all wrapped up in these moments of fun.
How God gave us food for the winters so cold.
And we’d quiet our thoughts as the stories unfold.
I now find myself thinking back on those times.
When building relationships, wasn’t spending our dimes.
It was time spent together sharing words and a meal.
That kind of friendship makes the relationship real.
I learned as a child of a Savior divine.
Who speaks to his children with a voice so fine.
But He doesn’t yell out, and words He won’t scream.
But with that still small voice my soul He’d redeem.
He’d say “Come to Me and let Me be your guide.
I will never forsake you; I’ll never leave your side.”
“I will give you the guidance to live day by day.
And all you must do is quietly pray.”
“SHHH” is the answer that we all need to hear.
It will give us a measure to take away fear.
If we listen so quietly, most surely we’ll know.
That it’s only through Jesus we’ll find room to grow.
