I’m Back!!

I’m back…
after no computer for a week…
leaving more time for thought…
and God’s presence for me to seek.
For my house has been silent…
except for the rain that pours down…
with no computer or TV…
but much more rest has been found. Continue reading

Intellectual Property– Something That We Each Create

Intellectual property…
is something that we each create.
Whether it’s a song or book…
or just our thoughts that we state.
Whether it’s written as a poem…
or in the form of a letter to some…
it originates in our minds…
and even from hearts words come. Continue reading

Writers and Bloggers– Writing From the Heart

As writers and bloggers…
many of us write from our heart…
expressing our brokenness journey…
where pain and sorrow struggle to depart.
And these words are precious…
for our stories are very real…
and it’s by speaking out…
that many of us start to heal.
And some words are even sacred…
like a download from God within…
as He leads us down paths…
where our brokenness will finally end.
So please respect our words…
and every post that we share…
for it’s part of our lives…
written with compassion and care. Continue reading

National Son’s and Daughter’s Day

I heard the announcement today…
it’s National Son’s and Daughter’s Day!!
So I want to take a moment to say…
for all our children let’s now pray.
That all will be safe in bed tonight…
as God’s angels protect them through the night.
That all parents will be loving and kind…
and no more abuses we will all find.
That each child will be happy and strong…
and not fall victim to things that are wrong. Continue reading

“Poems Up in Heaven”

“Poems Up in Heaven”.

This thought was brought back to my memory this week and I just want to share with you all again. God loves us all and created us each uniquely different. We all have various gifts, talents, and callings  that He implanted in us… but what if our calling was just to please Him and spend eternity with Him. What if our calling was just to return to Him because we bring Him so much joy. He created us. We are His Poems…”Poems Up in Heaven”…  all unique and beautifully written with a plan and purpose for His ultimate Kingdom purpose to be manifested on earth.  Think about it for “if we remain silent, even the stones would immediately cry out.” (Luke 19:40) Just picture all these “poems” just worshiping and praising Him… for He is worthy of all the glory, honor, and praise.

“Poems up in heaven”…
that’s what we are.
Beautifully written…
like a big shining star.
With plans for each life…
from beginning to end…
released to this earth…
then back to heaven again. Continue reading

Psalm 91 (Poetic Paraphrase)

This is for the many who have been broken by abuses, addictions, or the many obstacles that we stumble upon in this world.  I was in that place of brokenness, and I have seen what God can do when we pray Psalm 91 daily. God promises protection and provision… for those who dwell in His Presence.  As I prayed one day, these words to Psalm 91 just started rhyming. I want to share with you the “Psalm 91 Poetic Paraphrase” that I wrote that day, and I encourage you all to pray Psalm 91 daily in whatever version you have. His promises are true!

Psalm 91 (Poetic Paraphrase)

I dwell in God’s Secret Place…
abiding in His loving embrace.

For He is my Refuge and Fortress…
and in Him I trustingly rest. Continue reading
