Daily Prompt – a good leader

What makes a good leader?

Daily Prompt

I thought about humility, as one example, and then searched for posts and poems that may go well with this prompt.

Books Old and New

Where can you reduce clutter in your life?

Daily Prompt

We give books away, and buy new and used books.

POEM

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

A Cross Necklace

Describe an item you were incredibly attached to as a youth. What became of it?

Daily Prompt

This prompt recalled a post from May 15, 2012: A Cross Necklace. I will reprint the post today.

The lilies-of-the-valley are beginning to bloom.  My mother loved them, as I’m sure is true of many people.  I was just reading poems by Luci Shaw, and I shared her books with Mom too.  I remembered a marble cross necklace my mother had.  She gave me permission to wear it to high school, over 40 years ago.  And I lost it somehow and never found it.  My mother was so kind.  She pictured God’s love for me in many ways, including the keeping of material possessions in perspective.
