Smile at everyone

Believe in yourself

Respect others

Dream a million dreams

Create joy and gladness

Imagine new things

Bless everyone and everything

Faith gives strength

Grace is needed daily

Kindness is always welcomed

Peace is precious

Love is the greatest treasure

Hope is an anchor

Joy is contagious-give some away

Free Verse

I had been wanting to create a place to share my painted rocks with others and also offer the opportunity for others to place and share rocks they paint, so after several months of hoping, dreaming, planning and praying it came to fruition in a wonderful way and today it was completed! I am very happy with how it all turned out and feel blessed that it has already been noticed, used, and admired by many in my neighborhood. I am hoping now that it continues to grow and expand!

National Compliment Day

Bouquet of Flowers, compliments

Admire someone today

Bless them too

Compliments pay

Delights spew

Encouraging words say

Favors do

Give thanks or pray

Honor a few

Inspire not inveigh

Just give a hug or two

Kindness display

Laud anew

Make someone’s day

Nod out of the blue

Ovation convey

Praise imbue

Quiet gratitude portray

Uplift in the midst of ado

Visit to chase away gray

Write thoughtful words true

X-out actions that cause dismay

Yes, bless others all day through

Zip berating, give a kudos bouquet

Creation reveals the Creator

Vic_Viv_LincolnCity_073113I gaze upon the ocean with her mighty roar,
while above me the eagle does soar. 

A crab, which is a work of Your
Own Hands,
is displayed for me upon the sands, 

as I walk and think and pray,
I give You thanks for every day. 

Thanks for the sun that shines and the moon’s fair light, 
the trees that shade and the stars at night. 
You made it all and called it good,
in six short days, as only You could. 

As I look around me and bless Your name,
I must remember Your greatest acclaim, 

the image of Yourself, created in others and me, 
people, reflecting Your beauty for all to see.

NaPoWriMo 2013, #19–Blessings–“Pocket Poem”

Blessings-Pocket Poem 2013This a “Pocket Poem” I wrote and shared yesterday.  I printed out 5 in the shape of a pocket, which I carried in my coat pocket,to share with people throughout the day.
One share was unexpected and very special!
So glad I was able to participate in “Pocket Poem Day 2013”
and  I plan  to do so every year
(And…next year I hope to print out even more to share! 🙂

 

 

I bless you with hope,
As you go about this day.
I bless you with dreams,
That will never fade away.
For as you keep these within,
The battle of life you will win!

“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
Numbers 6:24 (NKJV)

NaPoWriMo 2013, #18–A Pocket Full of Rhyme

I’ve got a poem in my pocket,
A verse in my heart.
A vision in my mind,
As this new day I start.

I want to share them all with you,
As I go about my day.
Perhaps what I offer you,
Will encourage you in some way.

I hope my “Pocket Poem” will bless,
For it’s a verse from my heart,
It’s purpose is to bring happiness,
That’s my vision to impart.

So should we chance to meet today,
I hope you will stop for a time,
And let me share my thoughts with you,
from a pocket full of rhyme.
