#TuesdayThoughts – Listening


And you will make a new start, listening obediently to God, keeping all his commandments that I’m commanding you today. God, your God, will outdo himself in making things go well for you: you’ll have babies, get calves, grow crops, and enjoy an all-around good life. Yes, God will start enjoying you again, making things go well for you just as he enjoyed doing it for your ancestors. – Deuteronomy 30:8-9 (MSG)

“Keep listening, Job. Don’t interrupt—I’m not finished yet. But if you think of anything I should know, tell me. There’s nothing I’d like better than to see your name cleared. Meanwhile, keep listening. Don’t distract me with interruptions. I’m going to teach you the basics of wisdom.” – Job 33: 31-33 (MSG)

I’ve always loved reading this particular part of the bible that deals with Job and I find his conversation with God here amusing.

Challenge Haiku

In Shower To Play


One of my look-forward-to-on-Mondays is Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku challenge. Yesterday’s was on https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2016/03/21/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-89-showerplay/

So today I’m back to my weekly two-in-one poetry. Let’s hear what you think.

Shower Time

Questions pour like rain

Why this? Why that? Mom! Pray tell

Giggles, wince, soap’s out!

A Time to Blossom

Sprinkles from the hose

In response, the flowers spread

Spring calls all to play
