Believe in Yourself !!

Hello Fellow Bloggers. . .

Today’s mood was on a spiral down until I read another’s blogger’s post with regard to expectations. 

For me, writing is a hobby as I am a retiree – an antique as I often quick-wit refer to myself.

Although writing wasn’t my profession, I often place undue pressure upon myself with regard to creation of what I consider an art – the formation of a masterpiece.  

Necessary chores completed I had yet to print out some requested forms. For fun I browsed through my stored collection of picture downloads and out of the blue as if the Good Lord knew what I needed to read I came across the following prayer.

I thought it would be a nice gesture to share it with others who may experience doubt on occasion and wonder if blogging is a sheer waste of  precious time. 

"The Knots Prayer"
Dear God, please untie the knots
that are in my mind, my heart
and my life.
Remove the have-nots, the can-nots
and the do-nots I have in my mind.

Erase the will-nots, may-nots,
might-nots that may find a home 
in my heart.

Release me from the could-nots,
would-nots and should-nots
that obstruct my life.

And most of all, 
Dear God, I ask that you 
remove from my mind, my heart
and my life all of the am-nots
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought,
that I am not good enough.

Fandango’s Friday Flashback — September 6


Faith Chagrin Serene

Reality shows boredom
Brightened lights turned on
Background country tunes listen
Unforeseen circumstance c'mon

Impossible comprehend
Power of memory exercise loss
Previous chapters 'n contents storage depend 
Senior's energy-fueled remembrance show who's boss  

Participant catch-up scan 'n read marathon
Pencil checked words 'yes' helpful assist 
Hastily read 'n progress enlightenment whereupon
Yellow fluorescent highlighter usage win persist

Chosen read 'bout God-filled strategies
Spiritual messages usage e'er negativity strike
Way now think, feel 'n live transformation
Ironic! 100% optimistic thinking a definite like.
