Creativity Project Year Two-Day 26

Journal entry:

Journal 2-3-20130001


I returned to The Sunday Whirl for a prompt today. The words in italics were given on that site. If you need a bit of inspiration visit the wordle there.

No Excuses

Can I go straight to
The sweet spot again or is
There something I wish
To prove in interest of
Enlightenment without fuss?

I figure enough
Miserable time has passed
Almost everyone
Agrees I cannot go bust
With happier suggestions.

I have great ideas
Of what can be achieved by
Each of us tapping
Into creativity
Residing within our souls.

We are all without
Limit if we only have
A little more faith
In God’s ample provision
Of universal freedom.

Our heads and hearts are
Filled with imagination
That urges us to
Begin working toward our
Own lofty aspirations.

I am grateful:

1.   I got up at 6:00 this morning.
2.   I did my journal entry before going to church.
3.   There were interesting discussions in Sunday School.
4.   When I went by the mall it was not very crowded.
5.   Jeremy came by and worked with the truck awhile.


I am quite tired this Sunday evening, but it is a good feeling given by a full day. I hope you relaxed and enjoyed your day. I took the time to create, and so should you. No moment you spend using your imagination is wasted. The world awaits your work, so get busy.

As a prompt, use the phrase, “No Excuses,” in a poem, story, journal entry, or note. I am sure you can create something if you accept no excuses. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism to share with me, please leave a comment. I encourage you to subscribe to Chronicles so you get daily updates.

    Hi Jo Ann,
    I really liked your poem today. The poem itself is very nice and the thoughts it evokes and makes us ponder is also very good. I believe if we all trust that God created us as creative beings and we believe in Him we must believe in our own creativity. Kind of like we are created in His image and if we honor that then we must honor that creativity within ourselves. You said it much better than I did. Have a wonderful evening!
