Spiritual Health

Best Lent Ever...
Fasting...
Identified a habit...
Turning on the tv as I go to bed...
In its place...
Reading, 
Listening, 
Reflecting
To the words 
Everybody Needs to Forgive Somebody, 
A Purpose Driven Live.
Filling my heart
With the joyful music
And messages 
Of Christian hymns.  
Peacefully 
Falling asleep, 
Grateful for blessings bestowed.

Looking forward, 
Looking ahead, 
Making a plan
For spiritual growth 
With its beginnings in
Fasting...
Best Lent Ever

So Much Depends

Getting ready to start celebrating National Poetry Month with fourth graders.  Starting with the book Love That Dog.  As I reread the book, I was inspired to compose my own version of The Red Wheelbarrown by William Carlos Williams.

So much depends upon
Kindness
A welcoming 
Smile,
Encouraging 
Words, 
Thoughtful 
Actions, 
A gift of peace,
Love.

Writing Across the Curriculum

Find someone who...
Looking at the bingo card
Catching glimpses of myself
From the past
And the present.
Posts sitting in my draft 
Waiting to be published. 
Writing without publishing.

Done.

Reading, writing, reflecting

Reading about writing
leads me to stop reading,
temporarily.
Inspired 
to capture 
an aha from
a conversation swirling in my head
from yesterday. 

Purposeful.
