Just a bit of poetry to ease into the week….
As our nation pauses today to remember those in the military who have given their lives for freedoms we enjoy, we pray you would have us all look to you for strength, comfort and guidance.
Be with all who serve in our Armed Forces. Bless them and their families.
Grant your loving protection. Let peace prevail among all the nations, O God. Especially let your mercy rest upon our land, even as we acknowledge with thanksgiving your past goodness on this country.
If it is your will, preserve the lives of the men and women in uniform as they defend our citizenry.
Most of all, we pray that you would turn the hearts of all – military and civilian – to your holy Word where we find the true peace for our sinful souls that surpasses all understanding. Keep us repentant of sin. Move us to know, take hold and treasure your saving grace.
In this peace and hope for eternity, we pray.
I wish for you, my friends, forward motion. Always.
Have a great weekend
May creativity flap her wings at you and lead you to beauty
Life can be a bitch. Not a startling thought, because we all know it. All experience it.
And when life isn’t rolling smoothly and you aren’t traveling freely along the highway of peace and calm, you can get distracted. You start looking inward instead of outward. You miss things that way. Mostly your friends and colleagues – other people.
It’s easy to collapse into ourselves because we’re worried about paying bills, losing weight, selling books, ranking on Amazon or a million other things. And there are times when you must concentrate on yourself. Times you must go to your internal world and work on you. Self care is important.
But self-absorption? Not so much.
I’ve been living there for a while lately and I’m not proud of it. And it hasn’t helped either.
And I have once again realized that if you want to feel better, in general or otherwise, help somebody. It doesn’t have to be fancy or elaborate. It doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. It can be as simple as giving somebody the right of way, letting a person with one item ahead of you in the checkout line, smiling at someone, or saying thank you.
I promise you’ll feel better, worry less, and probably like yourself more. When you’re happier, good things happen.
I wish nothing but good things for you. Thank you for reading, when you could be doing a hundred other things.
Have a lovely weekend.
