Welcome to my blog. I’m so pleased you are here. This is a brand new one for me.
My usual place to hang out is at Words of Joy
This space is mainly for spilling out the poetic and prayerful.
Many days have been challenging for me of late and I need to remind myself to try to greet each new day with a positive attitude.
Maybe you can relate?
The poem below reflects those thoughts.
Brand New Day
Brand new day
I salute you
though I rise hesitant
weary of mind
heavy of limb
not to succumb
to sadness within
nor stick on my face
fake rictus grin
rather I aim
to see you aright
as a chance
to start again
after restless night
and begin anew
with mind made up
not to chew
on my problems
but to see
bright with awareness
of God’s light
brand new day
to salute you
“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it” ~ Psalm 118:24
This is a small taster for things to come.
