Oh, The Places We’ll Go! (Prompt 21/21)



Our final day: 21 Days of Journaling in July ! Our last prompt is one of my favorites…but they are all my favorites. Meanwhile…

Please be sure you have taken advantage of the free PDF as I am pulling it down for revision, editing and…more! Oh, and if you have any input -at all- please be sure and let me know, as I will be using these prompts (after revised, improved and edited) in book form as part of my upcoming local workshops!

And now a word from our sponsor…OK, it’s just me. Ha! Please take 5 minutes for my special word for you today!





A Providential Moment (Prompt 18/21)

Today your prompt is easy. I want you to write about a moment in your life, and I know there have been many, when you experienced God’s providential intervention or care in a powerful way. Below are the Google search definitions. Sometimes I think Google is God’s providential care for my blogging life!

Ponder the definitions, what moment in time pops into your head when I mention God’s providential care in your life…

To note: I’ve added some providential quotes at the end of the post…


Second Chances (Prompt 17/21)



Life is a continual journey of second chances, isn’t it? The sun rises, mercies are new and we awake to a new day of opportunity, a fresh start at the doorstep.

Today I offer you a couple of Coffee Shop prompts. Have at them as you will. As always go wherever the muse takes you and feel free to tweak that prompt to suit you …and your muse!


First a word from our sponsor…OK no, it’s just me rockin’ on the patio…chatting at you for 5 minutes on You Tube!


Literary Love (Prompt 12/21)

This has got to be one of my favorite prompts, friends! While in Maine for our family vacation I perused my favorite bookstores and shops. I picked up a vintage copy of The Velveteen Rabbit at a used book store.  I already own a beautiful copy but, you know how it goes!

It’s very late, so I will get on with it- Enjoy the process, and do not fret about the prompts you have not gotten to yet…they’ll be there waiting for you in the future.

Now, onto our Literary Love…


Art Pass (Prompt 9/21)

It is Friday and  I do have a video to share. This morning I sat at my kitchen table and wanted to encourage you on this journaling journey. My intention was a short video…I guess I need to work on that! However, I think you will be blessed by my sharing. Might I suggest you grab a cold drink, your journal and pen and sit with me? I will be offering a journal time at the eleven minute mark…so, join me?

And today’s prompt…

I remember watching the glee in my daughter’s eyes as she painted and scribbled her way through her childhood years. I have so many pictures of her painting and I saved way too many of her early scribbles, paintings, drawings and artistic creations. Art gives us permission to be children again, free from the limitations of adulthood for a bit of time. Free to be, create, and dabble in making something from nothing. What could be more exhilarating? 

This one today is for your artistic side…hmmm…let’s think this through. It is ok if you start in your journal but take it outside of your journal if inspired!

Take a Bible Verse and paint, sketch, collage, stamp, or otherwise create or RE-Create it. My friend Dawn Maurice from Heart Du Jour does this and if you want some inspiration take a peek. I really love her scripture doodles. I have shared some as well on my old blog in a Random Journal Day Post: Scripture Journal .

All that being said and shared: DO YOUR OWN THING!

Use whatever you have on hand, colored pencils, markers, pastels, crayons. Or keep it black and white.

Just have fun- I DARE YOU!


Write about a favorite artist or piece of art that is meaningful to you.


Take the prompt anyway you want.

So many options, so little time…BUT enjoyment, it’s mandatory.
