365 Creativity Project-Day 216

Journal entry:

Journal 8-12-20120001

The following poem was prompted by the wordle at The Sunday Whirl. If you need inspiration you might find it there. The words in italics were given there.


My thoughts ricochet
Down the curvaceous narrow
Halls flooded with doubt,
There are no maps to lead me
Past alcoves of self-loathing.

No lace decorates
The walls which warp with pressure
That does not dwindle,
Invisible force can spin
My life out of my control.

Nothing confuses
Me so thoroughly I am
Unable to function
Because I believe God can
Help me accomplish my work.

Though I am unsure
Of myself and the right path,
I live with great hope
Knowing my abilities
Can bring me complete success.

Gives me many chances to
Fill life with graces
Making things more bearable
For myself and some others.

I am grateful:

1.   I woke up fairly early.
2.   I found the package, I thought lost, in the mailbox.
3.   Penny liked the baby food we bought for her.
4.   One large Flat Rate box held all the things we wanted to ship to Alex.
5.   I had not heard from Jana in a long time, but she called this evening.

I hope you had a rewarding Sunday. I did not think I could complete this project tonight, but I managed. You can accomplish something creative if you will set your mind on it.
