Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.




Pieces overturned

Have to reset the board

Giving life a run for its money

Each day delivers a stalemate

Life trying to predict my moves

Me, trying to predict life’s moves (lesson learned)

So we stare at the board

Unbeknownst to us

God knows all and has the final say

So, I am positive He is sitting up there

Chuckling at our stalemates

Good thing life is not a sore loser

I plan on winning eventually

God will reveal the secret move

When it is time

I don’t mind setting up the board again

Until then

  1. “Me trying to predict life’s moves”… I hear you. But although I know I don’t think I have learned the lesson yet. Tricking myself again and again…. lol! So let’s set up the board again πŸ˜„

  2. We need to reset the board and start over! This time may the people win:)
