Pondering The Poetic Heart

Pondering the Poetic Heart is a place to guide our spirits into place of contemplative rest. As a poet, I long to encourage you to find hope and healing through the process of reflecting on God, love, life, and all things that capture the spirit through the written word.

In the month of November, I will lead us through a time of thanksgiving through my 30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems. In December we will ring the bells of Christmas. There will also be other times through the year when we will celebrate love, just for fun poetry, and more. I pray this will be a place of loving contentment for all of us.

Out of the Darkness

Listening to God allows us to walk into the light and find the blessings of obedience to Him:

...His instructions, though clear,
didn’t make any sense
I wondered, could I trust Him?

Poetry Journaling Fun

Between now and then I will be taking a break from doing blog posts to focus on preparing my heart for the conference as well as my classes. In light of this, I thought I would share with you one of the classes I will be teaching. Poetry Journaling. Why teach poetry journaling at a writing conference? I have learned it is not just a therapeutic outlet; it also inspires creativity and can enhance a person's ability to learn how to 'show, not tell' when writing a novel.

May you feel close to our Lord this week as we meditate on the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. May your heart be filled with peace overflowing and a joy in knowing He is not dead, He is risen, indeed.

Springing in Hope

Springing in Hope

If you are struggling today, it’s time to hold on to Jesus. Hold on to hope. Hold on to faith. Hold on to his everlasting, never-ending, love without condition.

Because when you have Jesus, you have hope and life. Life more abundant.

The storms may rage outside, but right here, right now, in this place there is The Presence of peace. Because these storms are no match for Jesus. The One who calms and restores.

The One who stands beside us and speaks, “Peace. Be still.”
