Everyday Life

Daily writing prompt
Describe one simple thing you do that brings joy to your life.

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Psalm 126: 5

every day a gift
from God and
so grateful

sunrise and

simple work
in the kitchen
time to read
every day a gift

Daily writing prompt
How do you unwind after a demanding day?

This prompt brings back memories of helping with my mother’s care. These were good years, and also were a lot of work. And she worked hard all her life. Good memories. Many people helped with her care. Her last illness was at the nursing home where she served as a volunteer for years.

I learned the small roads back North and home to our small town. Perhaps I can write a new poem.

small roads home
and the contrast between
city and small towns
flowers bloom later here
how wonderful to see them
at my mother’s home
and our home

Verses From The Psalms

Keep me as the apple of the eye,
hide me under the shadow of thy wings

Psalm 17: 8

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength,
and my redeemer.
