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.



Thankful just to be alive today

Nothing drastic just thankful

Life has its way of speaking to you

When you come to a pause within going about living

Everything seems to get quiet 

And even if a pin drops it cannot be heard

 I stand

I observe

I listen 

My heart expands and contracts 

My lungs fill themselves with the moment

Until the next moment arrives 

So in this moment, I thank you, God

For just letting me be alive today

  1. Ever thankful Brother 😊

  2. Pawsome post, dude – the human is taking over MY iPhone today so she can read her favorite blogs – she hasn’t been able to wrestle the phone out of my paws fur awhile now – there’s a NEW CREATURE around here now too -(should’a got those humans spayed while I had the chance)- she’s taking over today so she can post pictures of the Creature’s NEW SISTER!🙀

  3. The simple being. Amazingly powerful in its peacefulness. That pause we need at times. Wonderfully said, Sylvester! Great song too.

  4. I must agree with Erika there is an acceptance in this message, a pause to just be and to be grateful for that. Lovely Syl, words we can all appreciate.
