It Matters

I have written poetry since I was a child. I found this quote on Pinterest that explains what poetry is to me. I don’t know the author of this quote, but I love it.

” Poetry is what happens when your mind stops working,

and for a moment, all you do is feel. “

 

A place.

A smell.

A sight.

A song.

Feelings rush in –

The moment slows and freezes.

A thought.

A vision.

A memory.

A sound.

Time stands still –

Nothing else matters.

Our lives are filled with all of these moments.

Our bodies just skin that carries our souls.

Slow down.

Take time –

for the stuff that really matters.

Breathe in

Breathe out

The good and the bad.

Life is a gift.

Each moment, it matters.

The time we are given is not just for ourselves.

Thankful Thursday

Yesterday was Thursday.. Obviously. 💁

However, Today is November 1st.

Love that so many join in on the 30 days of thanks in November. So let’s get started today! If you don’t post it on social media, it’s ok! Write it in your journal! Or, at supper time go around the table and share something you are thankful for each day.

The more you practice GIVING THANKS, the more likely you are to get in the habit of Giving Thanks daily. Not just on Thankful Thursdays or in November. 😊

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever. (Psalms 136:1 NLT)

I’m thankful for my husband who is also the best friend I’ve ever had and loves me at my worst and my best.

I’m thankful for our two daughters who make us laugh every single day, and who shine Jesus.

I’m thankful for naps. 😊

I hope you all have a fabulous Friday and wonderful weekend! What one thing are you most thankful for today? Write it down.. Then you can look back and see your blessings at any time.

Until Next Time,

HEATHER
