Hello Lyric Fire Readers!
I managed to put forth 20 poems to celebrate National Poetry Writing Month – NaPoWriMo and due to some unforeseen personal challenges, I will not be completing the 30 day challenge. It has been really thrilling seeing what I could come up with and I hope you were able to get something from each work I presented. I know some of them were short and some may not have been my personal best, but I think the point of the challenge was to remain in a poetic state and really luxuriate in the art and loveliness of poetry and I most certainly did that. Thanks for reading and commenting. Your feedback is so valuable and very welcome especially in such stressful times as I am having right now.
Now, let’s focus on Friday’s Favorite Word Feast. I’m choosing security today as my favorite word as it is a current theme in my life at the moment. Feeling safe, being in a warm home and having food to eat are just a few things we often take for granted, but when those things are in jeopardy, our world seems to get smaller and we question our past choices and our most uncertain future.
But, during such times, I’m learning that how we handle uncertainty and adversity builds character and brings us closer to the ones we love. I’m also learning that God gave us all shoulders so we can lend them to others in times of need. I thank everyone who has ever lent me theirs. I also pray that when my own get a little stronger again, that I too can be of service to someone else.
Happy Friday and remember to be thankful for EVERYTHING you have. Even if it’s just a little bit of something. Cheers!
