Hope In A Moment

I gravitate toward God
It is natural for me,
Sometimes I also
Wallow in the murk;
Because sin haunts me.

My mouth speaks prayers,
Gratitude, and praise,
Sometimes I curse
Like someone lost;
Sin tossed on the sea.

I believe I am saved,
Born again, a Christian,
Sometimes I worry
I am wrong, deceived;
His Spirit is not in me.

Without His grace
Nothing would I be;
Sometimes I wonder
If Jesus truly meant
Salvation for me.

I am a human bundle
Of troublesome contradictions;
Sometimes my faith
Lifts my soul so I see Christ,
In eternity, is waiting for me.

Creativity Project Year Two-Day 89

Journal entry:

Journal 4-7-20130001


This poem combines the prompts from NaPoWriMo and Poetic Asides. You might visit those sites for inspiration, though I do not recommend you combine them as I have…

The Show Of Shows

The grandest stage of them all, where champs are made and losers fall.
A night of nights for fans who cheer and stars who shine.
We witness greatness and sore defeat, where some play fair, others cheat.

80,676 there live to cheer their favorites on to victory.
Countless fans tuning in around the world, like Mom and I here at home.
The show was great, some matches almost too close to call.

Did you by chance tune in to see WrestleMania Twenty-Nine’s pageantry?

I am grateful:

1.   Mom was okay with staying home this morning.
2.   I tried to sleep away the pain, and caught up a little sleep.
3.   I ordered WrestleMania 29 on Friday, so I did not run into the problems some fans did tonight.
4.   I talked to Alex overnight.
5.   WrestleMania was impressive and Mom and I were able to watch it together.


I did not quite accomplish all I wished this Sunday, because I was too uncomfortable to go to church. I hope your day was a complete success. I encourage you to take time to unleash your imagination and engage your creativity. You bring so much to the world if you only make an effort.

As a prompt, write about an event you enjoy watching or participating in. This could be anything about which you are passionate. Write a poem, story, or journal entry and leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Please excuse the lateness of this post. The telecast kept me occupied this evening. I am so glad I wrote the journal entry early. Time got away from me though. I hope that you enjoyed your visit here and that you will subscribe to Chronicles for future updates. I usually don’t dwell on wrestling like this, but I suppose I have become a fan. If you have thoughts, suggestions, or criticism to share, please leave a comment.

I am
Someone who tries
To bring happiness and
Encouragement to the lives of
Others with whom I come in contact each
Day, but know I fall woefully
Short of what I aspire
To accomplish,
I try

Rocks our very
Souls moving us beyond
The limits we usually set
On our solitary lives joining us
Together with one another
Helping us become more
Than our own selves

I am grateful:

1.   I slept in today, and got some extra rest.
2.   I cooked the caramel for the pies.
3.   My shower was refreshing, especially since I ran out of hot water.
4.   I have lots of music to enjoy on my iPods.
5.   Mom is feeling pretty well.

I had a late start to my day, but I hope your Wednesday has been a good one. Take a few minutes of your time to do something creative. If I can do it, I am sure you can. You just have to dedicate your will to doing it.

As a prompt, write about music. I know most every life is impacted by music, whether it be songs of faith or Rock-N-Roll. Write about it. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Moments Passing

The clock,
The calendar,
The hours, the days move on,
Taking us forward into our
Futures unfolding quickly before each
Of us in unending array
Of strange situations
That surprise us
In time

2.   We have free Showtime for three months.
3.   My replacement book came from Amazon.
4.   We had soup and salad for supper.
5.   God loves me extravagantly and completely.

It has been a quiet day here. I hope your Saturday has been filled with joy. Now I encourage you to use your creativity to make something wonderful to share with the world. You can do this if you only make the effort.

As a prompt, use the words: clock, calendar, hours, days; in a poem, story, or journal entry. I know you can create something even better than I did, if you will try. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments below.

Journal 7-12-20120001

I used a prompt from Poetic Asides to help with today’s poem. I am a day behind with using this prompt because I have been doing a good part of my writing without using prompts. If you need some inspiration, please visit that site.

This Is What Happy Looks Like

You are full content
With what your days bring to you,
Smiles playing around
Your lips with the simple ease
Of truly knowing your worth.

You rise up above
All the things weighing you down,
Like a bald eagle
Flying so majestically
Over all the land below.

You are quite grateful
For little things going right,
You take no time to
Complain over disasters,
You just work to make them right.

Your days go smoothly,
One blending into the next
With a magical
Quality misunderstood
By some who stand by frowning.

You live life in peace,
Not worrying so much how
The rest of the world
Relates to your composure,
Because you know life’s secret.

Rose, slightly impressionistic…


Rose and bud…


Golf course…

I am grateful:

1.   I got some extra rest.
2.   Penny survived the night and seems a bit better.
3.   We received some soaking rain without thunder.
4.   Mom took a long nap.
5.   DirecTv gave us a credit on our bill because the Viacom channels are not available.
6.   My favorite band, The Rolling Stones, are celebrating their 50th anniversary!

I hope your Thursday has been enjoyable. While you have a moment apply yourself creatively and make something. A poem, a journal entry, a story, a photograph, a drawing, or a painting make your experience available to others.

As a prompt, write a complaint about an annoyance in your life. You might do it as a letter, an essay, or any form that appeals to you. If you use this prompt, please leave a link to your work in the comments here so we may read your work.

I am so grateful for your visit to my blog and would much appreciate it if you leave a comment.
