A List Of Things

Clipboard with list

Things

Things lost

Things broken

Things we’ve found

Things of beauty

Things chosen in haste

Things we’ll treasure forever

Things we let go to slip away

Things broken by their use or misuse

Things left behind, forgotten, unwanted

Things dreamed about yet never received

Things dreamed about that we’ve achieved

Things we never wanted but got

Things that rose up like weeds

Things we kept to appease others

Things we threw away

Things we’ve loved

Things we miss

Things lost

Things

#NaPoWriMo—Day 9–Prompt: write a list of things

My Journey With Books

journey with books

I have been walking
The streets of San Francisco
“In Places Hidden”
Remembering the place
“Where Lilacs Still Bloom”,
While listening to “The Sound of Rain”,
With Judd and Larkin
And, as Hannah did, I am
Clinging to “A Passionate Hope”
Like Masuo Yasui in a “Stubborn Twig”
Or like those many pioneers did
On “The Oregon Trail”.
I, like “Judah’s Wife”, seek peace and safety
So I stop for a “Praise Pause”,
And praise God using one of His many names.
I am so grateful for His “Cherished Mercy”
And His “Redeeming Grace”.

My Hands

My Hands

I am thankful for my hands.
They do so much for me each day.
They are my handy helpers,
While at work or at play.
I often don’t give them notice,
Or the credit they are due.
But they shouldn’t be taken for granted,
For its amazing to think of all they do!
So today I wrote a list,
Of how their day was spent.
From the time I rose up,
Until to bed I went.
I was pretty humbled,
To see all they did for me.
In the time frame of a day,
So much activity!
So I want to give them thanks,
And appreciation for each task.
They should never be taken for granted,
These hands who perform without bring asked !
