Gratitude and Growth

What experiences in life helped you grow the most?

Daily writing prompt

This prompt follows my previous post, Remembrance.

I bought the 10th Anniversary Edition of One Thousand Gifts, by Ann Voskamp. I read the book awhile ago and wished to read the “Introduction for the 10th anniversary edition the gift of grace upon grace,” written by Ann Voskamp in 2020. The Page for the book at Ann’s site has a picture of the cover and more information.

One of my sites is Grief And Acceptance – growth continues, by God’s grace.

Gift Of Faith

If there was a biography about you, what would the title be?

Daily writing prompt

gift of faith
during my hardest years
lights down the beach
moon and stars at night

I reprinted this poem here on May 18, 2020, and also wrote:

“This poem is from March 11, 2012, at my first site, Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin. I was reflecting upon past experiences – and of course, not knowing what the new challenges would be. Family, my health, and our common history. We plan the best we can, and take good care.

Praying the Psalms is part of my life, through all the chapters. Many layers of memories. Faith grows. The Psalms are honest prayers, and they lead to trust and praise. I have so much more to learn.”

Daily Prompt

looking at envelopes
I think, my father
would save these
and collect the

rain in dark night
refreshes each leaf
today I think of you
no longer with grief
