A Christmas Sonnet


When King Herod called the money changer

to count all the people across the land

from Galilee Sea to Bethlehem sand,

mothers fretted over baby danger.

Wise men journeyed far from countries stranger,

and lowly sleeping shepherds took a stand,

when an angel came and held up his hand

to share news of hope born in a manger.

“Across the fields, follow a glowing star

to an animal-filled stable so stark,

our humble bundle lies awake this night

close to his loving parents-it’s not far.

In this broken world of despair and dark,

He is Hope-bringing peace, love, joy and light.”

(Petrarchan Style using cde/not cdc)

Merry Christmas!

May Jesus bring you hope, peace, joy, love

and light in your life-now and always.



200th Blog Post!


Last week I was excited and surprised to see that I’ve made 200 blog posts! What a crazy thought – 200. That’s a bicentennial. I’m not sure what else I’ve done 200 times… What have you done 200 times? It’s a lot, eh?

Through this process what I’ve learned is that yes, I definitely am a writer, and that I really love writing poetry and children’s books. I started this journey with Jesus and while I don’t push him front and center every day, He still walks with me and I still love Him. If you don’t know Jesus but ever want to, feel free to send me a message. He’s one of my favorite topics!

Anyway, I am mostly posting to say thank you for following me on this crazy ride. I am so lucky to get to do what I love – I truly hope you get to do what you love, too. God bless, my friends!
