Awakening: The Journey To

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Awakening

It begins with a

rugged, uphill battle

a road paved with

spiritual scars

The scheduled Roman road that runs across the Pennine’s Blackstone Edge Moor, Yorkshire © Mark Moxon

unevenly paved cobblestones

these paths, not pretty,

not smooth, instead…

Wisdom building, 

beauty making pain that

leads to a precious gift

a down for the count surrender

and there, we are met by God

where He gathers our

spiritual scars

weaving them into an

embroidered tapestry of 

fulfillment through selflessness

that will shroud the downtrodden with

a Love that heals and conquers all!

The Offering: painting and photo © Sue Vincent at scvincent.com

Silently in a momentary hiatus

from this past year’s journey

I reflect on blessings received

and give offerings of gratitude

with hopeful expectations

of the good that will come

in the Grace filled New Year!

Sue Vincent Thursday Photo Prompt – Angel #writephoto – Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose.

My Angel I cherish

is not the one covered

in shiny tinsel

instead the One who

comforts a weary heart

turning lament into joy

and causing the Sun

to rise and set on the

horizon of my soul

filled with guaranteed hope

the Sun shall always rise

again at the Morn’s dawn

with Dew of gratitude

as my daily meal to 

carry me through another day

A Dead Place

In Response To:

BrewNSpew Cafe Weekly Prompt #3 – Partake

FOWC With Fandango – Live

RDP Tuesday – Vacant

V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #76 – Music

Word Of The Day Challenge – Ocean

Your Daily Word Prompt – Purpose – December 10, 2019

Sadje’s What Do You See #7 – Does this picture inspire you to write something?

As they journeyed through the vault

in search of a priceless treasure

they found it to be vacant and silent

of the lyrics and rhythm that gives one purpose

to live and partake in the abundance of life…

 

They chose not to dive deep into the ocean of grace

to capture the music that would carry them through

the waves of sorrows, pains, unbearable grief into

healing calm waters of Love’s strength, joys and 

incomparable heights beyond human realms…

 

But alas, they let fear imprison them into quietus

for a soul without music is a dead place.
