Changes, Care, Prayer

Daily writing prompt
How have you adapted to the changes brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic?

We have adapted well. The Daily writing prompts are a good way to learn about more blogs, and perhaps new readers visit here. I am always grateful to see how readers are from different generations and from over the years. We continue to take great care.

From March 2020 to July 2020, I posted a verse from the Psalms, every day, with a picture (please see Archives). Then I worked with the content and created Pages (right sidebar).

The first post was on March 17, 2020: New Series From The Psalms.

And as I worked, I was grateful to discover this Bible verse.

God be merciful unto us, and bless us;
and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.

That thy way may be known upon earth,
thy saving health among all nations.

Psalm 67: 1 – 2

Morning Poems

Daily writing prompt
What are your morning rituals? What does the first hour of your day look like?

predawn and watching
the sky grow light
gift of another day
to read and write

for as long
as I can remember
the wonder of books

breakfast and music
when a song begins
I know the words
Amazing Grace

Steady Growth With Poetry

How would you rate your confidence level?

Daily writing prompt

I can say: steady growth with poetry, because of practice with blogs. I also read blogs, books, and poetry print journals. Reading is an important part of growing as a writer, as many have observed. Practice helps with “confidence level.” Always more to learn, a poem can be revised, and an editor may have a good idea.

And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us:
and establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Psalm 90: 17

Pray and Plan

What makes you most anxious?

Daily writing prompt

Praying the Psalms helps me in life.

When a new challenge occurs – and these last years and this time are a challenge for all – the words are familiar. I also follow my health care plan every day – practical and consistent. I can feel some anxiety before an appointment, but I have a plan. Extra rest, quiet time, and I prepare and review. Karl helps too. I am grateful for progress. One step, one day, at a time.

Wait on the LORD:
be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the LORD.

Psalm 27: 14
