A QUIET LIFE

By Lisa Huddleston

Shh!  This is a quiet life;

learning to be content,

to carry my own burdens,

to mind after my own business,

to honor Christ with true obedience

in humility, in peace, in self-awareness

and with a focus upon what is good.

Don’t chuck your muck in my dustbin;

 My dustbin’s full.

Look!  Where is Christ at work?

Listen!  What do you hear and heed?

Make it your ambition – a quiet life

Of peace and truth and integrity.

Amen.
