Hum, buzz, rum-

Hum, buzz, rum…


I shut the door

on all the voices and sounds;

your voice, a whisper above the rest-

is where my hope is found.


Journaling with Christmas Cards


Today’s prompt is simple, especially if you are a Christmas Card saver. First you’ll need to gather all your Christmas cards together, or at least your most recent. Then you will have a chance create in your journal or maybe create a new journal all together!

I save and need to purge my Christmas cards…I actually need to purge a lot more than my Christmas cards but that is a story for another day…


The Greatest Mystery in the History of the World

When I mention the greatest mystery in history of the world, what comes to your mind? Well, as I sat thinking in the early hours I realized there are many mysteries known…or unknown, to mankind, as the case may be. I decided to do a quick search, and if you want to fathom a few, have at it here.

But, like it or not, rejoice over it or not, there is a great mystery that all must eventually contend with for themselves, for there is no getting around it. I have been Re-enjoying (I know it’s not a word, but I just made it one- and that is OK, right Kel?) God Is In The Manger by Dietrich Bonhoeffer anew this Advent season. I am faced with the reality of wrestling with the Great Mystery of God once more, and it never ceases to amaze me.


Have a Holly, Jolly Quote-mas!



Well, here we are for DAY Four of our 12 Days of Christmas- Journaling Prompts for the Season. You probably have guessed our focus for today’s journaling. There’s nothing like a good old quote to get the creative juices flowing. Well,  let’s hope so. As a matter of fact, I do so love a good quote. I season my journal and planners with words I long to dine on repeatedly. A well turned out phrase can spark our imagination, offer great insight, and send us off running in a direction we had not anticipated!
