WOD Challenge 04-05-21 Sometimes I Am

Sometimes, I listen to the silence

Peppered with birdsong

The ticking of the clock

The faraway whistle of a train

Soaking it all in

Before the noise of the day

Drowns me in chaos

In the silence

I just am

I can be thoughtful

Mindful

Introspective

Happy

Productive

Peaceful

Restful

One with God

Ready to face the day.

WOD Challenge 03-29-21 Purity

Where does your mind first go when you think of purity? Chasteness?

Or maybe something different, like “freedom from adulteration or contamination.”

What about babies?

Or angels?

Tell me your thoughts on purity,

Clean water running so freely,

Babies playing innocently,

Angels flying on unbroken wings,

Virgins mindful of virtuous things,

That’s where my mind goes anyway.

CCC #120 Natures Comforts

Nature’s Comforts

Take a seat in my moss grown comfort

Let me caress you with softness

Close your eyes and listen to my cacophony of birdsong

Smell the green growth of Spring, the promise of tomorrow

Relax in my arms and let me comfort your soul

We Have Science to Thank 02-21-21

Well, today’s WOD Challenge word is science, which is appropriate after the week we have all experienced nationwide. I guess for good or bad, we have science to thank for the advancement of the human race, but remember, nothing would have been possible without God. I tried my hand at an acrostic poem explaining the word Science.

Science is the enterprise organizing explanations of the universe

Creating a dependency on electricity, machinery, medicine, and all that’s diverse

Inventing designer animals, cures for disease, trends in food and recipes

Ever evolving necessities, like space travel, safer vehicles, and medicinal quantities

Note the branches; natural, social, and applied sciences lead to the emergence of policies

Communities using these philosophies to live in harmony

Even challenging God’s existence, however can that be?

 

As a person who worked in the medical field, I understand having a love/hate relationship with science. I know that it’s necessary, and without it, so many people would have died from disease, yet I also believe that God exists and He gave us the ability to think and reason. This somewhat philosophical post was brought to you by the Word of the Day challenge.

Speaking of God, let’s all thank Him for this beautiful warm day, the fact the snow has melted, and for all the people working to get power restored, water pipes fixed, and groceries back on the shelves!! Have a blessed Sunday!

WOD Challenge & SoCS 02-20-21


I don’t claim to know much

Except I’m sick of the snow and slush!

Too much suffering is not so nice

People can’t drive in the weather and ice!

No water in some places

Or restrictions on it in others

Little food on the store shelves

Makes life difficult for our brothers

I do know this will eventually get better

Once we have some springtime weather!

Say a prayer for those in need

And curse those guilty of corporate greed!

Electric companies are on our last nerve!

May they get what they deserve!

Those who gouge prices may also be damned!

Taking advantage when we are slammed!
