When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Dont give up and run for cover

When clouds of adversity hover

Stand firm and you’ll discover

There’s strength in standing still

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Fly Away from Fear

Fly above the waters of doubt

Don’t let them drown and destroy your dreams

Don’t let your fears hold you down

Soar to the brights skies beyond

Keep looking ahead

Gather your strength

Never give

Fear a

Chance

Encourage Yourself

Never Give Up painting

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Don’t lose hope before you begin

Some days when you just can’t win

Keep tryin’ and make yourself grin

Pray for God’s strength to stand up

Some days when you just can’t win

Fight that feelin’ of just givin’ up

Mending the Broken Pieces

Broken windchimb

Discouraged, tearfully

I picked up the broken pieces.

Another trial.

Reaching for the Light of hope

To show me the way

I prayed for healing and strength

To mend broken wings

So I might fly, to try again

‘Til I reach heaven’s reward

Word Prompts:

Discouraged, Broken Wings, Healing,

Strength, Calm, Acceptance

“Our heart mends as our inner self—the central or innermost part of our identity—is wrapped around the Light inside of us, rather than around the people who have harmed us. This one small step changes the way we see things”. Suzanne Eller

Strong Standing Faith—Faith Standing Strong

Tree in leaves blowing in wind, rooted deep

Tree holding strongly

Roots digging deeply

Un-battered,Un-broken

Leaves swaying

Branches dancing wildly

Whipping winds lashing

Tree standing firm

Rooted deep

Unshaken

Deep rooted

Firm standing tree

Lashing winds whipping

Wildly dancing branches

Swaying leaves

Un-broken, Un-battered

Deeply digging roots

Strongly holding tree

Palindrome

Since today is a “Palindrome Day”—9/19/19–19/19/9, I decided to write a Palindrome Poem.
