2012

Fortunate days, fortunate ways,
Everything falls in place
In perfect timing, comfortable space.

Blessings rain down, erasing my frown
Bringing glowing smiles
To shorten the many miles.

Jesus travels with me, within me,
Making the journey worth traveling,
Keeping my life from unraveling.

Time passes, a year, rich in good cheer,
Hours made so beautiful
By miracles always very plentiful.

So Blessed

My life
Is filled with smiles
On a daily basis.
Even on bad days there is much
For which to be grateful, I can hardly
Complain because happiness fills
Most moments and many
Corners of this
My life

The following poem is in answer to the prompt on Poetic Asides. You might travel over to that site if you need inspiration.

Created For Greatness

Today and every
Day I rise with greater hope,
Anticipation,
Because I believe my life
Has an intrinsic meaning.

The Lord blesses me
Far more than I imagine
With gifts beyond my
Greatest need and I am born
Into heaven’s family.

My experience
Although sometime troubled here
Is definitely
Worth celebrating with joy
Because happiness abounds.

I may have little,
But I have been given quite
Enough to fulfill
And satisfy the basic
Necessities of my life.

Born to taste glory
I live anticipating
The coming of Christ
Who will instantly change me
To fit in eternity.

I am grateful:

1.   I have not coughed quite so much today.
2.   I can see the colors of the world around me.
3.   I can read and learn new things.
4.   I can discover answers to my questions easily online and by phone.
5.   Windows Live Writer allows me to alter the look of my blog beyond what is available through the WordPress editor.

I hope you have had a wonderful Thursday. Mine has been very low key. Now I suggest you use your imagination and creativity to do something great. You can share your gifts and talents with the world if you will attempt it. There are so many who are only waiting to see what you make.

As a prompt, write about how fonts have influenced your life. Maybe you have thought little about it, but take a few moments to write about the text all around you. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Today I wrote two poems in answer to the prompt at Poetic Asides. You might like to visit that site for a bit of inspiration. The second poem comes first…

The Truth About Computers

I have often heard
The machines called so evil
By those who do not
Spend any time using them,
But I think they little know.

Computers are tools
Made to help communicate
With others with ease,
Automate mathematical
Processes, and parse data.

These wonderful tools
Open the world from a desk
So that strangers can
Connect and share varied lives
Without traveling from home.

Because computers
Exist we can shop from home,
Share our opinions
With people in other parts
Of the country or wide world.

Computers are great
When used to reach out beyond
The boundaries of
Space and time bringing us all
Even closer together.

Loving Examples

Love is…
A loyal pet
A song in the morning
A friend who never deserts you
A mother who nourishes her children
A home providing you shelter
A beautiful sunset
A risen Lord
Love is…

I am grateful:

1.   It is getting cooler.
2.   I was able to lay out the page.
3.   Richard was willing to advise me.
4.   Mom was interested in what I did and gave me input.
5.   I enjoyed the work.

I was busy all day. I hope your Monday went well. You should take a few moments to do some creative work. This is probably a change of pace to the rest of your day, and should be enjoyable. Creation often helps calm nerves and may relax you after a long day.

As a prompt, use the phrase, “Love is” in a poem, story, or journal entry. I think this has many possibilities, just choose one… If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Without Warning

Sudden
How things happen
Outside expectation
Beyond my regular planning
Without any regard for preference
But I have finally become
Accustomed to such things
Unexpected
Sudden

Journal 8-16-20120001

Today’s poem is made up of Tweets I sent out during the day and a bit of additional work…

A Prayer For Us

May peace envelope us in
Its calmness. May we be held
safely above all turmoil. May we
Rise like evening stars above
Trouble’s treacherous horizon.

May all our adversaries
Be put to shame. May they come
To us with offerings of goodwill,
Working toward our good,
And not for their profit.

Not everything depends on
Others. Some things are resolved
Only within the self. The outside
World cannot totally
Rob us of our balance.

May we find endless love
Flowing from the universe
Into the midst of our lives
Filling us with such wonder
That we are overwhelmed.

May life become our success
As we remember we are full
Partakers in the promise
Fulfilled by our own
Great creativity.

I am grateful:

1.   I woke up early, but went back to bed for a nap.
2.   Penny is doing much better.
3.   I remained calm while talking to the AT&T representative.
4.   I will be able to finish my creativity project here.
5.   My bath was relaxing and refreshing.

I hope you had a very good Thursday. Mine was respectable. I want you to take time to create something to share with the world now. You have the imagination to do so, if you will only dedicate yourself to it.

As a prompt, write a poem or story using a tweet, status, comment, or short note you wrote during the day. These small jottings we make can become something bigger, more beautiful. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

I am so grateful that my call with AT&T worked out well, because I did not want to give up my internet connection and my interaction with you. I thank you for choosing to spend a bit of your day with me. If you care to, please leave me a comment.

Always,
Jo Ann
