Casual Friday


Coming up on one week at this blogging thing. It’s fun, but I may have to take weekends off. Right now I’m just too pooped from other things. I don’t want to burn out or get in a rut. Perhaps weekends off will help me keep my observations fresh.

Fridays where I work are “casual” Fridays. Maybe I’ll apply that concept to blogging and just use my Fridays here for simple, fun things like telling jokes or sharing pictures I’ve taken with my new digital camera. Or writing haiku. Some days I feel like writing haiku.

Don't know what to say.
No all-occasion verse here.
I'm tapped out for now.

Some days I don’t.

Hmmm...Had to look up what haiku was!

Sounds interesting, perhaps you can post some samples???

Fill me, Lord

Fill me with the fruits of your Spirit, Lord.
Fill me with love, so that I seek to understand and appreciate the rich variety and diversity of life that surrounds me.
Fill me with joy, so that I celebrate your presence in each and every moment I am on this earth.
Fill me with peace, so that I know how to ease those angry and sometimes violent urges that well up inside of me.
Fill me with patience, so that I stop rushing long enough to witness your miraculous work taking place all around me (and within me!)
Fill me with kindness, so that I take the extra time to help the one in need, even when it isn't convenient for me.
Fill me with faithfulness, so that I place my mind, heart and all that I do in the service of your Gospel.
Fill me with gentleness, so that others know that I believe in a God who loves and cares for all people.
Fill me with self-control, so that I act not on my impulses and urges, but rather on my beliefs and values, which are rooted in you.
Fill me with these fruits of your spirit, Lord!

Amen.

May you find the joy and peace you are searching for.


Take care.
Keep On Blogging!!!! Have a great day.

Berri, I wrote one just for you. Be on the lookout for it.

Haiku is the only form of poetry I've ever had any flair for. It combines my love of wordplay with my need to focus and cut through the BS sometimes. Sometimes I get silly with it, sometimes I play it straight. I've posted a few on the boards as replies every now and then, and unless someone tells me to cut it out, I plan to post more. I'll also put more here from time to time.

I'm so glad you've been stopping by! Thanks.

cicadas whir, the
sirens call
