Welcome to my domain...if you dare...

Welcome to my blog about life as a writer and the craziness it involves with struggles of daily life. Make yourself at home but only if you don't mind a little messiness from time to time. This isn't the Home and Garden blog or Martha Stewart so don't expect cute little crafts with homemade goodies. That's not happening in the world of vamps, weres, and other things that go bump in the night...well...maybe homemade blood cakes topped with 'scream a la cream' sweetness along with the sexy alpha males who serve it up.

Thoughtful Thursday....Clarity

Today I wish to share with you a poem I wrote some previous years earlier while taking a college children's literature course.  As I had my quiet time this morning with GOD, this poem came to my mind.  Although it is a rather 'simple' narrative poem, I believe it reflects perfectly the recent events in my life.  As you read it, I hope it gives you peace and comfort as it gave me years ago and today as well. 

Kneeling on my knees
I began to pray
What is this confusion
That I'm feeling today?

I ask "Dear Lord Jesus,
Can you hear my plea?
I will wait for Your answer
That will guide me."

I wait and I ponder
But all around is still
I do not quite understand
What is Your will?

He picks me up gently
And He tells me to go
His love and strength fill me
It will help me to grow.

Then a bright light shines down
Oh! This I understand!
To trust in His wisdom
For my life is in His hands.

I hope this brought some ray of sunshine into your day.  I would love to hear what inspirational or favorite poem has made an impact on your life or simply brought a smile to your face.  Thank you all and may you have a blessed day. :)


  1. Beautiful, serene - and as HE aleady knows, I could use some serenity in my life right now.

  2. Really like your poem! I've been asking for some wisdom along those same lines lately. He still hasn't given me a clue, tho.

    As for poems that have inspired me,I like several, but the only one that I comes to mind right off (off course--mind blank :( ) is John Donne's famous one: "No man is an island, Entire of itself, Each man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, As well as if a promintory were, Or a manor of mine friend's or of mine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, For I am involved in mankind, And therefore never send to know, For whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee."

    I always liked its implication of the interconnectedness of life.

    Hope the answers He's giving you are 'yeses'.

  3. Loved it hon! Great job...
