“We’ve got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn’t matter with me now because I’ve been to the mountaintop… I’ve looked over and I’ve seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.” —Martin Luther King speech, April 3, 1968
As I sit on my cozy couch this chilly December morn, drinking coffee after a breakfast of my favorite toast and jelly, I am enjoying the warmth of the heat and the quiet ambiance of my surroundings, and I am grateful for all I have.
My thoughts turn to those who are homeless, in shelters, or victims of human trafficking and abuse, or others trapped in lives of stress or poverty. The many who don’t have the comforts of home.
I pray for them, and do what I can to help them.
As I sit quietly
In my home’s cozy corner
My prayers travel far
This month I am an Advocate for Dressember which is an organization that raises awareness and funds to fight human trafficking and modern slavery worldwide.
I joined an art challenge this month on #Instagram called #Sketchtember and today’s prompt was to sketch a hand so I decided to try sketching a 3D hand plus do some doodling on it while I was listening to a lecture on writing poetry for a poetry class I am in.
Thus, the result was this poem and art I am posting today 😊.
?–Have you ever tried #doodling or #sketching as a challenge, or as a way to overcome boredom?
