Not Luck

I was sitting in
A swamp turned out and over,
Lightning crashed, hard down,
I was almost forever drown
Tears were overcoming me;
Then a cry arose
Clarion against my foes,
Sounding like a rose
Banner wrapping me within
Telling me begin again.
Never forsaken –
Come now, new heart, awaken
To a ground safe, firm,
Rock, I may stand complete on
The Beloved beckons, come.
Treasure hidden bright
Revealed in Love’s sterling Light
Abandon the night
Day brilliant invites delight
Heed the sweetest voice calling –
Redemption,mercy,
Abounding, amazing grace,
Sudden about-face
Into arms held wholly wide,
All fear spirited aside.
Severe hurt confide
Those things hidden inside
Pain, deep oxidized,
No more jeopardy – set free,
Found, restored, life’s sanctity.

2022 Creativity Project – Day 105

Regained

Love is the absence of fear
     Standing close to the fire
       But not near enough to burn
         Only warmth and light provided
            To draw forth kind comfort.

Seeing is excellent
     But clear vision is better
       Being able to read and write
         Without squinting or mistakes,
            Knowing what is and is not.

Hearing is needful
     But listening makes clear
         The meaning of the conversation
            With less room for confusion
               Helping dispel some delusions.

Life is love
    When little doubt, less pain
     Is in life entertained
     When many things are hard
     There is less to run toward,
     But love still holds arms out
     All the reasons known about
     Inviting the troubled soul
     To embrace, climb aboard,
     Action taken, shaken, love restores
     Calm gentleness brings peace,
     Into heart, mind, soul, evermore.

2022 Creativity Project – March 22

Goodness, and Greater Things

Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance. – 2 Peter 1:5-6

Every day we have choices, and when we are faithful and follow the advice above, we are likely to have a good experience in life, with blessings of success.

Last Friday I got a letter, which I should have received at the beginning of the month. It was a critical matter, so Monday, I made calls, but by this evening, I had gotten no callback, and I was apprehensive.

I wrote a respectful email, praying that I could straighten the problem out. I wrote carefully, clearly, hoping I would find compassion. I used all the knowledge of grammar and style possible in my lexicon.

I very quickly got a response that put me at ease.

I did not give up but kept beseeching a solution.

We do well to do our best and apply every knowledge and ability to those things we attempt.

Being kind, tender, caring with the people we encounter and those who inhabit our lives fosters love and teaches us self-control. We choose how our life comes to us. If we desire goodness, we must be busy with it in our days.

God is good, and Jesus is always willing to help us if we are hard-working at well-doing.

Remember, small things add up to more joyful days and eventually may lead to greater happiness. Joy is a foundation under a life; happiness is a pinnacle less often obtained.

Bless you in all you do.

2022 Creativity Project – Valentine’s Day

Making Possible The Impossible

Everyone feels defeated at times; the world and its problems overwhelm the mind and emotions. Personal setbacks also seem insurmountable, but creativity, positivity, and prayer help everyone overcome.

Prayer can settle the mind and help ideas arise, which upset can cloud. Having a possibility outlook, where positive material is brought into the intellect regularly, also adds confidence to a person’s toolbox. Creativity may supply unusual solutions or unique rationales that incite action and bring courage.

Asking others to share a burden or soliciting advice can be helpful, but these can also confuse. Many things require individual attention. There are deep wells of ability in each person when accompanied by a belief in oneself.

Treating others and ourselves with love is advised by the Bible, and it has many benefits. It gives the right impetus to allow us to conquer impossibility and rids us of many negativities which seize control and convince us of inadequacies.

Remember, sometimes goals are not accomplished immediately; great things may require a commensurate investment of time.

Dragon’s in Love – Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

Happy Valentine’s Day! – May love always find you and fill your life with encouragement and inspiration.

Prompt
Smile, look at yourself in a mirror, and say, ‘I believe in myself. I can fulfill my dreams. I am loved, and I love who I am and am becoming.’ After these affirmations, work on a creative project formerly neglected because it is a considerable challenge.

Gratitude List
I am thankful:
For central heat.
For warm clothes.
For things my Mom taught me.
For hope.
For God’s love holding me even when I do not notice.
