May our unknowing lead to breakthroughs and growth,

And our impediments inspire songs of gratitude,

Whether sung aloud or only within our hearts.

In Life I Discovered

by markfahmy

in-life-i-discovered

In life
I discovered
that the more you give thanks ,
the more you receive.

the more you recite the good moments,
the more they come running towards you.
the more you wonder in awe at this vast Earth,
the more you are born again like new.

Willingly for Me—Easter

by 50djohnson

Poetry challenge: Easter poem.

 

Type = ArtScans RGB : Gamma = 1.882

 

Christ willingly took upon himself your sins and mine that day.

In order that you and I would never pay what we deserved to pay.

In agony and pain He cried out ,”Father, forgive them, they know not what they do! ”

Even in death as His skin was scourged, His thoughts were of me and you.

In a time where many have gone crazy
TV, newspapers, internet full of lunacy
It’s getting hard to find anything positive
We see so many feel no reason to live.

Thank you
To all who
Were there with love
When no one else was

Had you known me then.

Sometimes

More than just platitudes
Sometimes kindness is just that…kindness
And gratitude is gratitude
There are no sinister motives
There is no foul plot afoot

The first man

by james left his hat

get-attachment (11)

You were the first man

Who loved me

Who held me

The first man who cared if I was okay

The first man who came running when I needed you

My first Santa Claus

My first guidance counselor

My first couch date

The first man to lay down the law

The first man first rate.

Raggedy man

by Devina

(via Pinterest.com)

For Poetry Challenge 2

 

He carries a whiff of diesel

Denim smeared, greasy to the touch

Beads of sweat cool on his sun baked face

Good shirts come home from the fields

With soft frayed holes and a scent of green

A sure thing to send Ma’s ire up

Added to the broken saucer and cup

The raggedy man,

A listener, a speaker,

Father mine,

Or even how today will end
But I do know that of all of my blessings
The greatest are my family and friends.
