Daily Prompt – Saturday

What snack would you eat right now?

Daily Prompt


Thou visitest the earth, and waterest it:

thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God,
which is full of water:

thou preparest them corn,
when thou hast so provided for it.

Psalm 65: 9

This is a verse from our 2020 Psalms series, and beautiful to share again today. Health is good work! Every day, with grace and gratitude.

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.

Daily Prompt January 4, 2022

Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?

Daily Prompt

This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118: 24 (KJV)

The Psalms and poetry in general bring joy and happiness to my life. I have grown a small home library over time.
