O, Lift Up His Name & Look! (Christian Poem)

Oh, when darkness falls down. We look to everything, except His name. How many times have we struggled? How many times have we tried crying out alone? O, lift up His name. For He's the light. Lift Him up, our precious King, for He's everything. O, lift His name and look! He shed precious blood.… Continue reading O, Lift Up His Name & Look! (Christian Poem)

Christmas Lights’ Memories | Poem

Mother decorated the doorways. Father strummed on his guitar. Christmas music was playing. Stars twinkled from afar. - Wafts of sugar cookies from the oven flooded the kitchen with warmth. Strands of Christmas lights were hung up. The nativity scene of our Savior's birth. - A cermaic tree was plugged in. Little bulbs all became… Continue reading Christmas Lights’ Memories | Poem

Looking Fondly Back On Thanksgivings’ Past

Thanksgiving, like other holidays, has special memories that are tucked into a box and pulled out from time to time to fondly remember. I thought today I would reflect on some of those memories.

They Come In Waves (Poem About Friendships Which Came & Went)

Last week I shared a post discussing the blogging community and it inspired me to write a poem about some friendships I've experienced. I thought you were my first best friend.

Middle… Continue reading They Come In Waves (Poem About Friendships Which Came & Went)

Bloggers become worried about their content and/or begin to throw shade at the loyal audience for drifting. People can… Continue reading The Blogging Community Can Get Cold Outside of Blogging

My natural personality: MessyUnorganizedProcrastinatorRambler (Rabbit trails galore) These traits might help explain this blog. I am working on these traits but it helps to have an idea going into this post... my messy mindset. I honestly do not blame fellow bloggers who know me from Inside Cup, followed this blog, and kinda wondered what happened… Continue reading What Is The Purpose Of Peeking Beneath?

Adjustment, Problems, & Flowers! | Container Garden (Update) End May – June 2020

Transition To Outside Summary Fungus gnats. Little evil beasts that can lay 300 eggs at a time and the little freaks eat up the roots that can seriously damage the plant. I had tried so hard to make sure I was not overwatering my plants, as this draws them, but if you read my last… Continue reading Adjustment, Problems, & Flowers! | Container Garden (Update) End May – June 2020
