365 Creativity Project-Day 265

Today I wrote a poem instead of a journal entry…

Journal 9-30-20120001

The following poem was prompted by The Sunday Whirl. The words found there are in italics. You might want to visit the site and see what it inspires in you.

Persistent Supplication

The tenderness of
Breathing holy prayers is a
Grand weapon against
Ambivalence which empties
Fear like water down a drain.

The Enemy flaps
His ebon wings and
Away dazed by the
Continual sweet
Of petitions lifted high.

God stretches His hand
Out to cover those who call
On His holiness
Protecting them from evil
And sparing them from great harm.

Much depends upon
The constant prayer of gentle
Hearts turned to Jesus,
He works wondrous miracles
For those who seek His kindness.

Raise abundant prayers
To the Lord who can fulfill
Your every request
For He delights in making
All your fondest dreams come true.

I am grateful:

2.   Hope sleeps with me.
3.   Jeremy, Christy, and Jayden visited today.

    Dear Jo Ann,

    This is my first comment on your blog. I find its concept very original because you do not stop at posting a single poem, but also add photos and comments about your daily life. I particularly felt insipired by the five things you are thankful for – it is truly a sign of grace to realize the little things which make our life easier and/or more joyful. These sentiments are also echoed in your lovely, uplifting poem.

    All the best,

      Andra, thank you so much for leaving a comment. I am glad you found the concept original. I have tried to make this creativity project something a bit different. I keep adding to it, it was decidedly less involved when I began it.

      I try to remember and express gratitude everyday. I think it enriches my life.

      I hope you will return again.

    I love your first stanza, especially the last two lines. Well done, Jo Ann!

      Thank you Brenda. Mostly the first stanza is your words in my order, but I am glad you liked it.

    Your sewing machine reminds of my mom’s sewing machine!

      The sewing machine was at a museum I visited… your Mom’s must be an old one.
