Goals Can Be Revised and Renewed

Is your life today what you pictured a year ago?

Daily Prompt

I think a lot about what these last years have asked of everyone, in many ways. My 2022 calendar reflects goals met, new ideas, and revised goals. I have postponed a new book a few times (health and schedules), yet Quiet Christmas Poetry (2014) continues to be shared with others. So I am content with my work this year.

You can read all of the poems for free at Quiet Christmas Poetry.

So the year begins to end with gratitude and hope. Grateful for blogs and this way to create. One day at a time, God’s grace.

Daily Prompt: December 14, 2022

Have you ever performed on stage or given a speech?

Daily Prompt

Years and years ago, I remember speaking in front of groups. My best advice is to prepare well and practice.

I pray the Psalms aloud and read from poetry books and journals aloud. This is a good way to learn. And our posts reach many people over time, and I proofread carefully. Then when I reprint a Bible verse or poem, I read again. A quiet life for me now.

Tanka by Carol Purington

On a drift of air
that circles the globe
from heart to heart,
continent to continent –
words of a carol
