sometimes Im skating on the edge of night
balancing in my mind the wrong from right,
heavy is the daily weight of living
and it seems like I just keep on giving,

sometimes Im skating on the edge of day
when I cannot find sleep or what to say,
racing my thoughts I cannot think them all
before stars say good bye to daytimes call,

sometimes Im skating on the edge of thirst
when Im eating Gods words so full I burst,
I share what I read I cant keep it in
too bad they do not keep my body thin,

sometimes Im skating and Im not on edge
though I feel like writing out a new pledge,
for myself to stop and get needed rest
my alert system knows life is a test,

sometimes Im skating and Im not too cold
though my aching body is growing old,
in prayer I do find so much relief
from these painful bones giving me such grief,

sometimes Im skating for the sake of fun
as I recall my life and things Ive done,
a prayer of thanksgiving I can say
while Im waiting to start a brand new day...

wear a mask
wash your hands
use sanitizers
avoid crowds
keep your distance
outdoors is safer...

does anyone else feel like their clothes
are some kind of magical sham wow
that's gonna absorb every single disease
known to mankind in this year of 2020?

I feel like a fragile glass jar sometimes
that at any moment will come crashing down
to be shattered into a million pieces
while Im here bare foot trying to tip toe

upon what ever is actually remaining
of this mythical thing known as my social life
which keeps poking at me on my heels
reminding me I havent a real dinner out in months

Im over reacting over fed in debt and in doors
at anytime I might find this new world we live in
somehow normal if that makes any sense
cause right now not much seems to

other than stuffing another piece
of Dove chocolate into my mouth
while I read the wrapper and it says
"smile someone is thinking about you"

and I remember God always is
Thank you Father in the name of your Son Jesus Christ
all a girl really wants sometimes is a piece of chocolate
and hope in eternal salvation! Amen~

(this is what I was thinking about just now... from the mind of a woman)

I feel the Holy Spirit prompted you to write and put alot of thought in this particular poem. Alot of us can relate, sister.

You're also in our prayers that the Lord will lead you and your future employer together for His glory.

Have you applied at Amazon? I'm curious because out here in the SF Bay Area they have been hiring - warehouse operations, drivers, data entry/ administration.

God bless you, thenami, and your family.

Amen bobinfaith as I was wanting to write, and was prompted by the spirit to simply speak my mind when eating a piece of Dove chocolate.
I forget their wrappers have a message in them, as I usually throw them away without looking.

Amazon doesn't have a warehouse here in the part of NC where I am. God will push me through the spirit in the right direction I have no doubt.
He reminds me everyday how great and loving he really is, and how his angels fight a good fight in spiritual warfare.
This household is blessed in his name for we are his children, and thats some powerful stuff right there. :)

fighting the good fight as a stead fast prayer warrior and soldier for Christ, that has been under attack

might we be champions on the battlefield
not a brigand bandit nor assassin of peace,
but fierce warriors with a cry and hunger
upon God's righteousness we shall feast,

clothed with intercession and a bible
our adversaries shall hear our call,
not with violent anger will bullets fly
but with Jesus our defender we shall brawl,

made ready for confrontations skirmish
shod with gifted armor to withstand,
the dishonorable iniquity of wickedness
plagued openly throughout every land,

boldly with patience and hope as a reminder
we shall join as an army to fight well,
against the evil principalities of mankind
joined in a Christian prayer bombshell~

Amen

breathing letters strung together
are drawn into me through my nostrils
like a child with scrambled magnets
placing letters on the side of a fridge,

then I exhale upon a blank page
as they form one line at a time
into connected sentences together
with glue manufactured from thought

and poof here they are in English
across the magical intercountry web
in threads joining those whom wish
to read my late night ramblings

while I wonder not so quietly
for my mind is a marathon runner
too bad this isn't enough exercise
cause my brain sure has a nice shape :)

lol...

Hello my sister thenami;

I feel "breathing letters" is playing a part of what Hazel and I are dealing with right now. After my sabbatical, circumstances have crossed our paths and instead of reacting, Hazel and I are struggling to receive the plans God has for us. The next 4 days Hazel and I are meeting with our mentor counselor regarding retirement plans and the possibility of moving.

More to come, stay tuned...Same God Time, same God Channel. lol!

alone

one word and nothing else present
unescorted by any sentence structure

solo on its own in the dictionary among the living
excludivity in its finest presentation,

except for the fact that 5 letters have company
a with l, o, n, and e all snuggled up together

just like those of us on this site
for we are never singular when we have the spirit

its all a matter of how we choose to view ourselves
and stand on the foundation of Christ

together :)

Fall's Journey


there is a song by Green Day "Wake me up when September ends"
that always makes me cry upon deep reflection as it is a month
turned into a season of rustling leaves like crumbling wood
left to whither silently away into the dust of yesterdays ashes

life is but a journey from one year melting like a prayer candle
slowly lighting the path into the next promised hope of eternity
as old things are passed away and behold new things spring forth
while we love supremely and listen watch wait for its call

there's far too many to wish to remember each one in my heart
they are gone like hurricanes say goodbye to landfall
and tides say see ya to seashells left behind for tomorrow
but I did love and know them all once upon fall's journey

from those on motorcycles in cars in hospitals in love
even the one's whom tragically decided their own fate
here they remain in an entangled gathering of spiders web
among the ruins my heart keeps covered ever so eloquently

as the leaves turn to drop kissing the soil where they lay
nestled memories of how cherished they once were
while still upon the branches that brought them life
now returned to the soil from whence they once grew

even in self induced solitude we cannot escape its grip
nor hidden among colorful markets full of energy
for the hour of reckoning to settle what will be due
will find its grand exit payment and leave the living

may I live in childhood innocence
doing things like they are for the first time,

before building a tribulation fence
when everything in life did seem sublime,

might I have the courage to tear them down
and see through those eyes as I did before,

my heart had sorrows it wanted to drown
in a world of happiness to explore,

that little girl who once skinned her knee
is whispering come out to play once more,

she is always a special part of me
when I remember to open that door~



~heres to our childhood innocence that is never really gone,
just asleep for a little while as we dream...

Glory be to our Father in heaven
for his beauty of the oceans
as I baked my skin among the grains
stuck to me like dreams of outings
now washed away in raging waves
of Emerald Isle blue green coolness

I had such a nice beach day yesterday
Its really in the simple things I find the most enjoyment

as we evolve in the spirit might we also remember the evolution of others
and judge them not for they might still be unable to eat the meat of the word
we can only hope to shine for Christ into the darkness as a light for him
so others might see him in us and choose to repent of their past sin nature
do not give cause to others to despise us and use Gods word against us
find love and patience to change our own hearts before we try to change others

love and peace to all

God bless you and thank you, sisters thenami and Via;

Hazel and I are very grateful for your prayers

thenami, we're still praying for the Lord to bring you and your employer together. He has already gone ahead of you!

Via, we're praying for your safe travels. Have a blessed time with your family and please be safe!

God bless you both!
