Uneasy Quiet

Silence…
Usually
Something I much enjoy,
But when the words are taken out
Of the day by someone I dearly love
It makes for a miserable
Time bereft of all joy,
I hope it gets
Better

I am grateful:

1.   Hope is my puppy dog and does not hold grudges against me.
2.   God loves me in spite of my faults.
3.   I was able to do some shopping today so I will not have to go out tomorrow.
4.   Wal-Mart had Cream of Asparagus Soup and I bought three cans.
5.   Reba called me this evening and will be in our area during March, so we might see each other.

This has been a miserable Thursday, but I hope your day was full of goodness. Take a few minutes and do something creative. I know you have much to share with the world if you just open up your heart.

As a prompt, include the phrase: Don’t wait to get started in a poem, story, or journal entry. This is another saying from the wrapper of a Hall’s cough drop. It got me writing, I bet it could help you too. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I apologize for being a bit down tonight. When Mom is unhappy with me it makes me sad and out of sorts. I hope maybe you will be encouraged that even on a bad day it is possible to do creative work. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism to share, please leave a comment. I hope you will visit again, if you would like to receive email updates, you can subscribe to Chronicles.

Always,
Jo Ann

Christ

He is
All powerful,
We are all fallible;
He is so completely loving,
We are often consumed by awful hate;
He came, a Lamb, to be slaughtered,
We have choice to believe;
He’s devoted,
Jesus

I am grateful:

1.   I did not drown when I was learning to water ski.
2.   I regained most of my faculties after a horrible overdose.
3.   I did not die when I tried to kill myself.
4.   Jesus did not count His life to dear to sacrifice for my salvation.
5.   God loves each and every one of us, and wishes none to perish, but all to come to repentance and belief, receiving eternal life.

This has been a thoughtful Wednesday for me. I hope your day brought you success. Use your many talents to do something creative now. I know you have the ability to accomplish wonderful things if you only devote some time to doing so.

As a prompt, write about why you hold the beliefs you do. You may be much better at explaining yourself than I am. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you see fit to come back often, but you may also want to subscribe to Chronicles for future updates. I you have thoughts, suggestion, or criticism to share, please leave me a comment.

When I’m Alone

Sometimes when I’m
Alone, I cry…
Even though I wish
These tears would not
Fall from my eyes.

Sometimes when I’m
Alone, I try…
To remember
All the many
Times we once shared.

Sometimes when I’m
Alone, I want…
To escape this
Place where I am
Now, left behind.

Sometimes when I’m
Alone, I cry…
So completely
Unwillingly,
Because you’re gone.

I am grateful:

1.   I had good dreams as I slept this morning.
2.   Penny has gained one pound.
3.   I was able to reschedule an appointment.
4.   Each day is a learning experience.
5.   There are so many things to do that I am very rarely the least bit bored.

This was a very good Tuesday for me. I hope you enjoyed your day as well. Creativity flourishes when we take time to nurture our imaginations. I do this daily and you should too. Just set aside a few moments to exercise your creative talents. So much can be achieved in your life if you will embrace this practice. You can positively impact the world through your endeavors.

Last night I wanted to clear my sinuses, so I got some Hall’s cough drops out. I noticed there were sayings written on the wrappers. I changed one a bit and used it as my prompt today, now I share it with you: Don’t waste a precious moment… Use this line in a poem, story, or journal entry. It got me writing and I expect it could do the same for you. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thanks so much for reading my blog. I hope you will visit often, but you might also want to subscribe to Chronicles so you will receive email updates. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism to share, please leave me a comment. I read each one and appreciate them more than you know.

Always,
Jo Ann

Without Any Doubt

Maybe
You and I do
Not agree, maybe we
Stand for very different things,
But there is no reason we should ever
Be enemies, we can still live
Together peacefully
All without hate…
As friends

On Mission

Do not
Know how to do
Witnessing, but I can
Be myself and perhaps invite
Others to come where they can hear gospel
Preached in an effective manner,
I have a small part to
Play in leading
Them home

Be Yourself

Dare to
Be different,
Be an original.
Stand out from the rest of the crowd,
Because God made you to be exactly
Who you are both inside and out,
You are created in
His own image…
Yourself

I am grateful:

1.   Although I ignored my alarm awhile, Mom called me and I got up before she left this morning.
2.   I wrote up the list of contest winners for the webpage, and separately typed them up for email.
3.   I posted the description of the new contest on the webpage and placed it in its proper menu without making a mess.
4.   Mom brought me an excellent lunch and chocolate éclairs.
5.   I did some editorial work that I hope proves acceptable.

DSC_0027

Mine was a working Saturday, but I hope you had time to relax. If you have not already created something to share with the world, I encourage you to do it now. There is no time like the present to exercise your imagination. You can brighten and/or enlighten someone’s life with your creativity.

As a prompt, write a poem, story, or journal entry of encouragement to yourself and others. Preferably write it in the second person, but if you rather use the first person that is fine as well. Just write and come back to edit later. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you found your sojourn here enjoyable. Please come back frequently, and if you would like updates by email, subscribe to Chronicles. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism to share, please leave a comment.

Always,
Jo Ann

Definitely

Defiantly you
Stand up against the whole world’s
Warlike resolve to
Bring you down from your lofty
Creative aspirations.

You have wherewithal
To accomplish everything
You dream of daily
If you will only hold tight
To your steadfast commitment.

Your full devotion
Sets you apart from others
Who are unwilling
To make an all-out effort,
So go forth, conquer the world.

3.   Mom seems less upset with me today.
4.   I talked Jeanine and found out she was able to connect with my doctor.
5.   My niece seems to have resolved her problems with one of her teachers.
