God is Whistling

As I sat
in my sanctuary
this morning,
with the painting of Jesus praying
looking at me,

I stopped
and appreciated the peace,
the quiet,
the calmness.

I tuned my ears
to God
what do you think I heard?
God whistled at me!

No, God didn’t whistle like Roger Whittaker.
He didn’t even whistle like this obsessed whistler below.

No, God whistled through the trees outside in my snow-covered yard.

Didn’t take long for the snow to blow off the trees!

The wind was blowing at about 30 miles per hour.

Some people might find that sound
I found it inspiring.

Here is the poem it inspired:

God Is Whistling

God is whistling
At me this morning
The trees are dancing
Sending out a warning

A storm is coming
The sky is darkening gray
We’re going to have snow
Again on Christmas day

I listened to His whistle
For in it there was joy
I heard His song announcing
The coming of His Boy

I can whistle His arrival
I can join God’s happy tune
‘Cuz I celebrate this season
Christ the Lord is coming soon

Alice Paschal drawing

I imagine those doves are cooing
as they peer down on the Christ Child.

I can whistle a cooing sound of a dove.
Try it.
God is listening.

I can whistle. Can you?
Whistle a love song.
Whistle a Christmas carol.
Whistle along with your favorite song of the season.
Here’s another Roger Whittaker for your listening pleasure:

I hope that made you smile.
Nothing like a cheerful whistle!
Thanks for visiting JanBeek.

I love you!

Have a Marvelous Monday.
See ya tomorrow.

    • Maybe you can tune in to one of those whistlers next time you go down to Sierre and have more time and a better internet connection. BTW, how IS your internet connection in Vissoie?

    I love your whistling poem. I remember wanting to whistle as good as my dad. He was a champion. I practiced and practiced. I even whistled without realizing it sometimes. One Sunday I started whistling during the church service. Ooops! But I got pretty good. Never as good as my dad though. God is whistling in those beautiful trees! Iā€™m so glad it calms you and inspires such wonderful poems. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank YOU for sharing this story of your dad and his whistling, (((Laina))). I’m glad your whistle is a source of joy! You are a source of my joy. God bless you! <3

  5. I loved the whistling, Jan, and had a go myself yesterday as I was getting dressed and putting on my face. I think I could get rather good with practice! šŸ˜€ xx
