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.

End of Month Blessings

30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 30!

Thank you, dear Lord, for this month of blessings
a time to celebrate all You’ve given
some days full of cheer, some full of woe
but always there is something to be thankful for.
And now as we transition to focus on Jesus’s birth
let us not grow weary, let us not go in haste
instead to choose each day to bring each other grace . . .

Timeless Melodies

Timeless Melodies

30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 25

Make a joyful shout to the Lord, all you lands!
Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
Psalm 100:1-2

Those old, timeless songs
the ones that mean so much
melodies familiar, touch our heart
memories we hold dear
just at the sound of one lyric. . . .

Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving Day

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
Philippians 1:3

What a wonder it is
this most loving gift
a day with the Lord,
and family and friends.

Friends and Family

Friends and Family

30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 23

Oh the simplicity of family and friends
gathered round tables, hand-in-hand,
filling each other with more than food
sharing hearts of love and God’s goodness too.

Leftover Thanks

Leftover Thanks

30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 22

I’m so sorry Lord, for the times I’ve given you my leftovers.
Instead of starting my day with you, or ending it in prayer
I’ve gone about my life as if I don’t care. ...

Unshrinkable Faith

Unshrinkable Faith

30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 21

Oh, for a faith that will not shrink
midst the worries, pains, and fears
the kind of faith that dreams big dreams
praying each day upon bended knees. . .
