Doing Nothing


My wife and I 
we are sitting at home
very much alone
watching a TV show
the music is pleasant
even a bit soothing
I take a bit to contemplate
we are by most standards
doing a bunch of nothing
accomplishing nothing
but we are content
we have enough money
to cover the rent
buy some food
maybe a bibelot or two 
not a whole bunch more
this is the life God intended
We go to church
we pray often
we eat we sleep
and we deal with  concerns 
each day presents.......
there is nothing new
everything has happened before
and everything will be again
we live in the classroom of souls
God is developing us to be with Him
often we get lost in the shuffle
then the commercial ends
my thoughts fade  
and I watch TV again
but I take a moment 
in prayer to say thanks to Him

Attempted to Believe Matilda:
