small roads home

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.

Psalm 19: 14

Psalm 100

Write a letter to your 100-year-old self.

Daily writing prompt


Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

For the LORD is good: his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Who are your favorite people to be around?

Daily writing prompt

As I pray the Psalms, there is a sense of love and strength through time. I think of my parents and others no longer on earth. Love endures and grows. Friendships change too, as life asks different things of us. Blogs and books, faith and prayer, are constants. I remember how my mother reconnected with some old friends in their old age. Thank you for visiting today.

peaceful time

I see them anew
