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.
Christmas is Coming!
30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 26
Christmas is near
it’s almost here
ready to make
Celebrate His birth
as He brings to us
peace on earth
goodwill to men.
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. . . .
30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 24
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
What a wonder it is
this most loving gift
a day with the Lord,
and family and friends.
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.
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. ...
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. . .
Those Quiet Sunday Afternoons
30 Days of Thanksgiving, Day 20
I’m so thankful for Sunday afternoon quiet
my favorite time of the week
to ponder Your Word in my heart
Your praises quietly I speak.
Banks of Grace
30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 19
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
My bank account is empty
funds are running low
but I’m so very grateful
for a God whose love is more...
30 Days of Thanksgiving Poems, Day 18
Evening and morning and at noon
I will pray, and cry aloud,
And He shall hear my voice.
