If God asks that you bend, bend and do not complain. He is making you more flexible, and for this be thankful. ~Terri Guillemets



Today, I am extending an invitation of sorts. A few moments with your pen, paper and quietness as it finds you. Grab your journal, scrap paper or whatever is available.

Early in my Blogging journey, I did my first 31 day challenge on the theme of Thanksgiving. It was an instrumental exercise in building writing momentum and discipline. I discovered camaraderie, fellowship and support for my beginning blogging years. More

The Resting Place

Tonight there is a beautiful Full Moon – I have had a chance to rest, reflect, and  consider the Sabbath. Awhile back as I read Jeremiah, a passage struck me and I have been considering it since. Tonight, as I considered Chapter 50: 6-7 and reflected on the day I wrote a short poem.


I pray it is a blessing to you. The verse is shown following the poem.


What Are Words For?


Lyrics: Written by Terry John Bozzio, Warren Cuccurullo • Copyright © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Songs Music Publishing


Do you hear me
Do you care
Do you hear me
Do you care

What are words for when no one listens anymore
What are words for when no one listens
What are words for when no one listens it’s no use talkin’ at all

I might as well go up and talk to a wall
’cause all the words are having no effect at all
It’s a funny thing

am I all alone


Counting Down: The 21 Days of Journaling in July begins in 3, 2…




Welcome to the 21 Days of Journaling in July!

Don’t worry, you are not late at all…we start officially July 6th.

But, in the meantime,  let me  get this party started and let you know what you can expect over these next few weeks! If you have questions, feel free to e-mail me (it’s over in the sidebar) as I sometimes miss the questions on social media in the interim of life.  As much as I enjoy using them, I tend to pop on and off intermittently. Other ways to get an answer to your question is to comment on the blog. Since I get those in my e-mail, I will respond as soon as possible to those as well.
