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.


Leaps And Bounds 

There is nothing I want more 

Than to close the distance rapidly 

Free falling into the silence

No parachute, no wings

Building that bridge piece by piece

The flames of this last crusade engulf me

There are moments that I am mere ashes blowing in the wind

But faith always pulls me together 

And God teaches me to fly a little further each day

We continue to grow in this together 

By leaps and bounds

Monday Thoughts: New Direction

As you may know, I love to inspire and encourage people. We all face our own daily struggles and happenings we try to deal with in the best way we can.

I say goodbye to Monday Motivation with this post and just share my thoughts each Monday.  I came across this interesting video and wanted to share it with you.

Stay inspired as best as you can.


Towering Thoughts


Remnants of the day

fall into the shadows

the sun makes its descent

slow and steady

appreciating the moments within the hours

thankful to be guided through

My towering thoughts can rest for a while

I could stand here all day

And let my thoughts wash out to the ocean

The waves would wash their thoughts upon me

We would enjoy our conversation

Our give and take

Revelling in meaningful things

Life would be life 

And I would let the day unfold 

As it was meant to

At The Corner of Nowhere 

In the midst of another night 

Waiting at the corner of nowhere 

Street lights heighten the anticipation 

It’s do or die

No consolation prize

Is this our opportunity to get away?

Make that great escape 

Hashtag #lovewillfindaway

So I wait 

And wonder if this is all in my mind

A daydream gone offline 

Looking around, it resembles the crossroads where we met

Monday Motivation: Make It So

“The bird dares to break the shell, then the shell breaks open and the bird can fly openly. This is the simplest principle of success. You dream, you dare and and you fly.”
Israelmore Ayivor 

If there is something you want to do then do it. If there is a change you want to make then change. Our hopes, our dreams, our goals can only be realized by cracking the shell of comfortably, taking off and flying. We have to learn to stop our over analyzing brain from keeping us from what we want to do.

And as the good Captain Picard would say “Make it so!”

Stay inspired!
