First rose in bloom.
Enjoying the simple things.
Feel of rain, and the warmth of sun
Priceless, often overlooked,
Treasures are free,
And in our lives
Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.
“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse
Today in my hand
What shall I do with it?
Use it for good before its gone?
It’s my choice
I can choose to just waste it
And throw it all away
Or expend it
Common days are filled with
As pleasant sights and sounds abound
And a giving spirit
Enters our hearts
Sometimes it leads
You on an amazing journey
Hidden talents within yourself!
You will enjoy finding
New things to do,
Lately I have been trying to learn how to draw. I have always wanted to but never really took the time to see if I could. So, last month I decided I would.
I bought a Sketch Book and some drawing pencils, found a daily drawing prompt site on Instagram and began my journey!
It has been a delightful, rewarding time each day. I am learning so much, finding hidden talent I didn’t know I had and meeting new friends.
I usually search for “How to Draw” sites or on You Tube that have drawing tutorials.
Today was especially exciting as the Prompt was to draw “Numbers”.
I decided to create something from the Numbers 25 as today is the 25th.
The drawing you see posted above is what resulted! It just amazed me to see where creativity led me today! From the numbers 25 to a Snoopy Top Dog drawing! 😊 I just had to share my excitement!

Of a Lampost.
To stand, uphold the Light.
At all times, in all seasons,
Strong, sure, supporting the Light .
It’s purpose isn’t to shine,
But to stand firm,
Of the past’s occurances
Alone I face the future
That my life was not in vain
It was orchestrated
For a purpose
Based on Psalm 138:8 The LORD will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands. (ESV)
My name is Mat
I meet and greet you daily
I put myself out there for you
Acknowlege that I am sincere
My heart’s very fragile
Not a Door Mat
A Greeter is a person who greets people entering a store, church service, or other public place. When I wrote this poem I was thinking of Dennis who is a greeter at our local Walmart store. He is always friendly and outgoing no matter the day or time. He always greets with a smile, handshake, fist bump and good word. So many people appreciate his sincere friendly attitude. The world can surely use more people like this!
