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

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!

Nature’s Legacy

Written In Response To:

Maria Antonia Weekly 2019 Photography Challenge – Come join me, each Saturday, in posting a photo. There is a list of the prompts to help inspire us. The order of the photos won’t matter. In other words, you don’t have to start at the top and move toward the end. For this challenge, you may pick any prompt on the list and start with that.  My Pick:  Legacy

by His spoken word

God’s gift to humanity

nature’s legacy

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

where do I fit in

within this stone chamber’s walls

I look out to see

not to this world I belong

but to God through my belief

Your Daily Word Prompt – Hoard – March 16, 2019

The Haunted Wordsmith Opposites Attract Challenge #13

For this challenge, I provide one word and a list of its antonyms. The challenge is to use the prompt word AND one (or more) of its antonyms in some form of writing (or creative work). 

Today‘s word: knowledgeable

Antonyms: ignorant, unacquainted, unfamiliar, uninformed, unknowledgeable

SIlhouetted man facing the illuminated Infinite sky

Why must the world hoard prideful hatred

instead of humble love and peace…

why do the religiously knowledgeable

choose to remain spiritually ignorant

going on and on in their evangelistic rant

about the very things they have no Wisdom of…

~ * ~

For they have not lived with or loved the broken

you know–the ones left forgotten and forsaken

instead preach praise and worship of the rich

whose wealth never scratches their greedy itch

~ * ~

Is it no wonder there is so much hatred of God

who despite all of this still loves the beautifully flawed

although God’s words may be taught by a leader

there are no actions of evidence to

prove of love they are a breeder

~ * ~

For God is love and this His heart’s desire

that we all love others with an all consuming fire

He is not who they say or show Him to be

He longs for us in His divinity from pride to walk free

~ * ~

So why must the world hoard a prideful hatred

instead of a humble love and peace

because it does not know the Truth

about the God who is love…

~ * ~

For actions speak louder than words spoken

and the ones who teach the words have actions

consistently defying God’s promised words written.
