Celebrate Walk Through Experience Poem


Hello friends. (smile) Welcome Lexa and co-hosts, L.G. Keltner @Writing Off The Edge and Tonja Drecker @Kidbits Blog, to another week to celebrate the small things.

Hope all is well and you’re keeping the faith. (wink)

Wahoo, this week, I celebrate finishing my third poem. It took me a year and a half to get the words and timing right.

I love poetry. It’s my hope and faith to write spiritual poetry soon.

Wahoo, something to do. (wink)

Walk Through Experience

As we live and get older
Its much easier to see
Faith and trust in Jesus Christ

Is the safest place to be

Most won’t understand this
That makes it very sad
To know Him is to say out loud

He loves and protects me well

The many things in life
Bring forth ebbs and flows
Faith to go the distance

A quitter will never know

Life can change in an instant
Regret is what we’ll have
All because a little doubt

Is all we ever had

Belief becomes important
Validated by what we speak
This is faith in action

That will always trump defeat

To know him is love
To trust him is wisdom
Anything else is a substitute

Left empty and wishing

I share this with a passion
Because I believe it’s true
Jesus Christ died on the cross

Because God loved me and you

Celebrate Grace to Adjust


The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.
~ William Shakespeare ~

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.
~ Psalm 37:23-24 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Happy Friday! Welcome Lexa and co-hosts to another blessed Friday to celebrate the small things.

There are times obedience is better than sacrifice. Again, I missed the mark to complete NaBloPoMo. (smile)

Wahoo, something to do.

Sometimes, plans change. This week, I celebrate grace to adjust. It is a beautiful thing to understand God’s grace and the ability to adjust to life.

Grace to adjust can silence psst.

Grace to adjust realizes it is, what it is.

Grace to adjust ___________(fill in the blank)

My first allegory poem:

Life has challenges
Ebbs and flows
Things and stuff
Perception is different to everyone

Can be temporary
Can be long-suffering
Can be tough
Get understanding of self

Exposes weakness
Exposes strength
Exposes attitude
End result gives experience

Brings growth
Builds strength
Defines character
Enhances maturity

Time spent at the circus
This place that pay wages
Where challenges are daily
Coming at various stages

There is pressure
There is angst
There is unbalance
Enough to be weaken

Slow down to breath
Slow down to pause
Slow down to adjust
Electing to choose grace

Grace to crawl or walk
Grace to endure
Grace to adjust
Navigating through

It’s the end of the day
A turned up look
Beaten but not broken
Now experienced because grace got you through

Praise The Lord for his grace.

Abundant blessings, my friends as we choose grace to adjust. Have an awesome day!
