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

“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

Mental Stream

There are thoughts we think

That will never see the light of day

Actions that will go unaware 

There are just some things that will remain inside 

The glory hounds bark loud 

But they are just surface dwellers 

Sometimes everything is not seen or heard

But the vibrations resonate deep

Monday Thoughts: It’s Not About Me

So much goes on in life on a daily basis. So much is happening within us and around us. Guess what though? Everything that happens is not about us individually. Yes, there may be things going on with those closest to us, friends and or acquaintances, but it is their own personal experience, designed for them. It may involve us indirectly by some minuscule percentage and we take it to heart, allowing it to affect our mood and well being.

“It’s not about me,” now let’s repeat that…”It’s not about me.” Let go of that selfish thinking. Don’t allow your ego to rob someone else of their life experience. The best thing we can do is be supportive, encouraging and depending on the experience, share in their happiness.

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
