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.
And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7...
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Did you see the sun rise
awakening the day
bringing forth life
in such an extraordinary way
when was the last time
you stared into the night sky
moon and stars playing
twinkling so bright. . .
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 . . .
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.
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. . . .
