Apart From Love




It won’t matter what you said,

apart from love-


apart from love.


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!





Feast or Food Show (7/21)

Hello Journaling Friends! Today marks the first full week of our journey! I hope you are enjoying the prompts. I am hoping to make a few videos this week but do you have any questions? Are you facing any obstacles? My biggest obstacle is …ME.

What I mean by that is sometimes I make a mountain out of a molehill and I need to remember to take the notebook and pen…and “Just Sit”. Don’t disregard the beauty and simplicity of that pen and paper. Don’t make the journey a mountain!

If you are feeling stuck, try these “UN- sticking techniques:

  • question the prompt
  • sit in a different place to write
  • journal your prompt before bed or first thing in the morning
  • act out the prompt (not always!) – today is food…journal while you enjoy a solo snack or meal
  • write only the part of the prompt whether word or sentence that resonates or is calling, into your journal page to start
  • use the image only as your prompt

Here we go… More

Exploring the Ordinary (Prompt 2/21)

“The “show business,” which is so incorporated into our view of Christian work today, has caused us to drift far from Our Lord’s conception of discipleship. It is instilled in us to think that we have to do exceptional things for God; we have not. We have to be exceptional in ordinary things, to be holy in mean streets, among mean people, surrounded by sordid sinners. That is not learned in five minutes.”  Oswald Chambers


Hello Journal Keepers and Fellow Travelers!

This post today sticks to the original as I have had a rather busy 48 hours resolving this crazy ear issue I am dealing with…I am sure God will teach me something through it!


As I wrote As I wrote the title out last night, I actually wrote “Exploring the Extraordinary”.

Hmmm…so maybe that could be an alternative prompt! Exploring the extraordinary ordinariness of everyday…? Ha! Have at any of what you see here, as you will.

Meanwhile, quick question for you. I hesitate to start yet another Facebook Group…but will let you decide if this is something you want, I will do it. You all can post and share freely…I got so many e-mails and questions I have reconsidered and if you all want a community to share easily we can have that available. I just need to know if you would like that! I will keep it open to allow everyone easy access and entry then we will decide from there the details.

Yay of nay for Facebook group- let me know? 

Meanwhile your prompt and today’s You Tube video are below!

Thanks for being here!
