Blessing Counting ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

Don’t number your burdens,
instead count your blessings
for burden counting, adding
can be gloomy and depressing.

So let your mind run free,
and add up all the ways
God has provided you . . .
with your needs each day.

Don’t list your complaints,
instead tally up God’s benefits
for complaining, tallying
has disheartening elements.

So let your heart begin,
to list the hopeful things
everyday into your life
Jesus sends and brings.

Don’t list all of your have-nots,
rather count the good things God has given
when your done the total sum . . .
will add up to the reasons you’re forgiven!


Psalm 103:2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits:”

Twilight Write

Peacock Poetry

The fabulous February sunshine made the dusk so special and I often found myself linger a little longer outside than was necessary in order to enjoy the mood. The stillness in our village at this on weekdays is so idyllic and gratitude just pours forth of its own accord.

Bedazzling Dusk

There’s something oh so whimsical

about the dusk tonight

The moon croons like a miracle

The air pure as Snow White

Old ruins stand empirical

hug hills of times gone by

Inside my soul is lyrical

As minstrel cats leap by

This moment is the pinnacle

Of golden glow now setting

Could charm even the cynical

and heal the soul from fretting

Some might call me hysterical

But my heart is alight

There’s something oh so whimsical

about the dusk tonight

If you would like to access and deepen your own creativity in a free on-line no obligations life…

Gentle and Sublime- #poetry of #spirituality and the #naturalworld



As the Silence of echoes Peal

As the Whispers of Compassion feel

While the angels stoop to Pray

Fragility strikes the chords that Play

Refrain of Memory sadly Sings

Verses that Eternity brings

Lullaby of ancient Rhyme

Lilting Gentle and Sublime

God Gives Shade ~

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

God gives shade,
to us when weary
provides a cover
when we’re dreary.

He shadows us with,
with mighty wings
helps us to rise
above all things.

God gives shade,
to us when frayed
provides a screen
when burden lade.

He shields us,
with His right hand
holds us upright
when we can’t stand.

God gives shade,
to us when dismayed
so His glory on us . . .
can be displayed!


Psalm 121:5

“The Lord is thy keeper:
the Lord is thy shade upon
thy right hand.”
