 Fortify my soul

Grant me peace

And obedience 

The latter

I’m lacking

At the moment

Tell me something good

That happened yesterday

Wednesday, March 30, 2022



I don’t multitask well at all. I’ve tried. I’ve had to write lists to remind myself to brush my teeth. I’m moving slower these days to lessen the anxiety. I’ve spending more time in nature, exercising and reading. Mental health equals physical wealth. Be happy my friends.

Abandoning perfection

 I’m slowing down

Worshipping freely

Listening to 

The voice 

I’ve silenced

I’m not fulfilling

The calling

Even when

I don’t like

What I write

I must continue

For it’s what

He asks me

It isn’t an

An adoration society 

For people

It’s simple


And undivided attention

And respect

For Him

Who doesn’t 

Ask for much

Learn from me

Don’t squander 

The talent

Seeking the unattainable 

In search

Of something 

So fickle


May my words

Glorify You

And make 

You smile


Somebody finally chose

To ditch perfection

 At thirty-eight

The words worry

At thirteen

They flew 

And soared

The question is

Idealism ceased

When reality

Was too much

Not to address

Free me

From worry

So life

Can become 

A joy

It deserves

Thank you ancestors

The blood of 

Yellow and blue

Is my mantra

Be determined

Be so fierce

The world

Takes notice


 What are you ordering?

What are you eating?

What are you reading?

Prayer requests?

A good thing from the weekend?

Garden aromas

 The winds

Whips me around

To the delicious 

Scent that

A garden delivers

The tomatoes shake

The basil shimmers

In a bright sunshine

As Spring

Reinforces her arrival

Thursday, March 24, 2022


 My heart

Resides in

The red

White and blue

But it’s made 

Up of people

Whose blood 

Was yellow and blue

Stand proud

Like the 


You are


 What are you reading?

What are you making?

What are you ordering?

What is on your heart?

Any prayer requests?

Wednesday, March 23, 2022


 Breathe in

Breathe out

Release frustration

Inhale peace

Let it all go

And think

Of butterflies

If you must.

The battlefield 

That requires 

Multiple sets 

Of batteries

Amp up courage 

Dial up patience

Success is 

A slog

That demands

Everything you have

Even on

Off days

Monday, March 21, 2022



Never surrender

You’ve come too far

To let it all fall

Rise up

On the anchor

On which

Faith rests

Now and forever

He doesn’t forsake

He doesn’t leave

That’s reason enough

To not retreat 

And give 

The enemy 

Your victory

Remember the strength 

Of your ancestors

 Be strong 

Be brave

Take the chance

The risk

To be full

Of joy

Without regret 

Tuesday, March 15, 2022


 Sliding into Spring

The green grass grows

The flowers bloom

Appreciating nature

In a wonderful new way

Lead me

 Thank you Lord

For the blessings

I take for granted

And yet You

Don’t reprimand

Yet remind me

That my actions

Either demonstrate

Or denounce

The power

Of Your Presence 

In my life

Let me love 


As You 

Would lead

 On this day

I’m grateful

For simple things

That are really


Wednesday, March 9, 2022



You inspire me

You drive me

You show me

Why I’m proud

You remind me

Of why I fight

Why I live

And why I must continue

To be a human

Full of hope


And compassion


Use me

To magnify

To pray

And have

A heart

For humanity

Tuesday, March 8, 2022


 I’m slowly learning 

How to live again

It’s frightening

Yet exhilarating

I’m getting brave


The realization

Came after

An early morning

Plunge into 

A cool pool

I’m living again

In honor

Of every Ukrainian

Fighting for

That right

Thank you Lord
For giving me peace
As I write
It is a privilege
Don’t oppress
Or ostracize
When the world
Sees your countenance
Will it greet
You with
A grateful smile

Yellow and blue

 Yellow and blue

The color

Of hope 


All odds 

My heart

Only grows 

Fonder for 

You all

With each day
