Breathing in Life

Breathing, woman, freedom, life

Breath is a blessing

Our life is but a vapor

Thankful for each breath

Senryu

If you have ever lost your breath for a moment I am sure you can relate to this poem.

Having recently had an asthma attack that literally took my breath from me for a few seconds was very scary and made me realize how precious each breath I take is.

Life is short, breathe it in and give thanks for every breath!

Counting Blessings

Number 13

Thirteen

My lucky number

That’s the date of my birth

Glad mom wasn’t superstitious

That day

OctPoWriMo Day 29

Theme: By The Numbers

Most people think the number 13 is an unlucky number but since I was born on that day I have had to consider it positively as my parents always thought me to be a blessing to them and weren’t superstitious.

(Besides, I was born on a Tuesday not on a Friday!) 😊

Doubly Blessed

My Granddaughter with diploma, rain,and rainbow

This rainbow

Given to me

By Lord God

Just before

I received

My award

Of Mac High’s

Diploma

Syllabic Verse

This really happened at my Granddaughter’s High School Graduation! It was pouring rain almost thru the whole ceremony, we all got drenched, and then…just before her name got called to go up for her diploma the rain stopped and this beautiful Double Rainbow came out with the sun shining thru the clouds! So awesome!

Sweet Sound

Woman Doctor speaking “All Healed”

“All healed”

Is what I heard.

Doctor’s smile and good words

Are a gift many don’t receive.

Blessing!

NaPoWriMo 2018 Day 23

“when you hear it, you write it down.” Today, we challenge you to honor this idea with a poem based in sound. The poem, for example, could incorporate overheard language. Perhaps it could incorporate a song lyric in some way, or language from something often heard spoken aloud (a prayer, a pledge, the Girl Scout motto). Or you could use a regional or local phrase from your hometown that you don’t hear elsewhere

Standing Ovation


This very place

Where I once stood

Weak and frightful

Wondering if I could

Now I stand

And all’s well and good

I’m feeling strong

As I hoped I would

This brings the thought

Had I not in Him stood

If life now

Would be this good

It would not

For its understood

In His great strength

Is my livelihood

Rhyme

I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.  (Jesus) John 15:5 

 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Blessing of a Gift

Oft’ a gift blesses

Not only the recipient

But also the giver

Senryu

And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’  Acts 20:35 

Last night I was blessed to be given a wonderful surprise gift by my youngest grand-daughter. Her generous heart brought me so much joy!

Yet, she said the giving brought her much joy also.  She’s such a sweetheart!
