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.


Friday Inspiration: Not Alone

Creator of the living

Above all things

Should I reach for the sky

I need not reach far

Because you are near

Always near

I am never alone

Friday Inspiration: Fade Away

The past resurfaces

In bits and pieces

The old life calling on you

No need to turn back

There’s a new day awaiting

Let the old fade away

And let the new inside

music: Jeremy Camp “Let It Fade”



“Breathe,” a voice said

“No matter what, just breathe”

Deep, long, drawn out breaths

Until the grey started to have color

I began to have a new understanding of things as they were 

There was no great insight to be had

God said to trust Him and I did

Clarity came at a price though 

A small part of myself was taken away 

Maybe I didn’t notice at first, but eventually I did

My heart was golden, for how long?

Not sure, for now I will let things be as it may be

Bargain Basement 

I’ve been ignored by the best of them

Rejected, despised, outcasted an ostracized 

What I had wasn’t good enough 

Sincerity was bargain basement in their eyes 

I smiled and I laughed as the very soul within was torn apart 

And in the end, The Beatles made me feel good

And in the end, bargain basement sincerity is worth far more than high gloss fakeness 

I am not sad nor am I bitter 

I still find humor in comic strips

And God sure knows how to make you feel special

6/3/17 – Time…Unknown 

Thoughts of blues skies 

Warm hearts, warm atmosphere 

Idle chatter, light banter

Pick and choose, whatever grooves you

Beautiful eyes that make men cry

Shy smiles although we have conquered worlds

Thoughts of you

A forgotten treasure 

A natural life enhancer (no exaggeration)

Banging the drum slowly to slow the rotation of the day

Lighting a scented candle to say “I’m with you always”

Studying this map of life and seeking clear directions (God, I know you are listening)

I sang a song today and I sang it loud 

Thoughts of sitting alone

Feeling my heart beat inside 

Sipping on an ice tea

Saying “cheers” to whatever comes next 

Hoping the best is always yet to come

Friday Inspiration: Light Divine

Touched by light divine

Rise and shine

Into new life

Mercy and grace accompanies

This humble soul of mine
