Discover Joy with Creative Scripture Journaling

boggpost2

 

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 16:11

                                                                

Earlier this week I shared about a favorite Journaling Prompt I enjoy which allows me to experience great intimacy with the Lord and also inspires my poetry and prose writing.

Rhode Island Writers: 4th Annual Anthology


bookant

 

As you may already know, I am part of a local group of writers who gather weekly to share their writing. The writers in our group come from amazingly diverse backgrounds but we come together to share in a community of writing, listening, learning and seeking to understand each other and our world a little better.

It is in this spirit I share our latest offering made possible by our leader Linda Langlois who spends the many hours required editing and finalizing details to make our work available to others. The fact is many of the writers in our group are published in various newspapers, periodicals, and books. But, the beauty of the group is we all come for the love of writing. Period. So anyone who has the slightest inkling in that direction is welcome. As a matter of fact,  you might not even realize you love writing until you get around a group of crazy, word-loving wild-eyed writerly folk.

So here we are at the end of another year of writing adventures…with this offering available-  I have heard many of the stories shared in this book, and I assure you if you enjoy short stories, poetry, and a well-turned word, I encourage you to treat yourself to this anthology! I promise you will not be disappointed.

The poems listed below are my contributions included in this anthology and they are not published anywhere else; however, I have read a few of them at local poetry events. Although I like to let poetry be open to interpretation of the reader the poems shared for this anthology are – as always – a glimpse into the heart and soul of the one who writes. These poems were written and/or worked on over the last two years. Especially significant to me and for our times are The Wisdom of Trees and Winged Community which both have been shared for local events. If you would like to hear me read any of the poems listed, let me know in the comments and I will consider sharing a video.

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)

photo credit: MebS09 via photopin cc

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
