A Medley of May Flowers and Micro-Poetry


Bold Prayers

There is no limit

to what God can do

so our prayers may be bold

as we remember this truth.

Thank You

Thank you

dear Father

for being willing to hear

as we share our hearts

and pour out all our fear.


Wendy ❀ 2015




Blessings eternal

You have granted free

as well as Your own Presence

for all

who will believe.


Wendy ❀ 2015




Your name is Hope

and the only

Good Place

to put our trust

and rest by faith.

I’ve shared a medley of short poems

I’ve collected from recent ones I’ve shared on Twitter and /or Facebook.

These are the ones that seemed to be most liked.

I’ve noticed the favorites with readers

 are the ones I wrote out of a deep place of pondering

during my morning reading times.

I journal each morning.

In my journal I note a favorite Bible verse,

and I then write a poem in response to it.


I have linked this post with Sunday Stillness (author/artist Janis Cox)

I hope you will take a moment to enjoy her artwork and devotional.


This week I guest blogged,

on International Christian Fiction Writers,

about keeping a journal.

Do you write in a personal journal?

    1. Marisa, that’s exactly what I love about your writing, and I think it’s why I’m so drawn to memoirs—real stories are really interesting. It’s comforting to find out we’re not alone. ❀

  1. It’s funny Wendy, I only seem to journal when I’m going through trying times. I think it’s my way of processing out loud. Love your photos, verses and poems. <3

    1. Diana, that’s one of the best times to write out your thoughts and feelings for the very reason you said. <3 I can tell by my handwriting if I was feeling tense when I made a journal entry. ❀

  2. So many of the spring flowers are so beautiful!
    The first poem struck me especially. We tell God what to do, but only God knows the whole story and sees the whole picture. Kind of like telling God how to improve an apple blossom.

  3. Wendy, your poems are beautiful. In my journal, I have a section for each person in my family … and when the girls would say something funny or brilliant, just something I knew I’d always want to remember, I’d jot it down. We laugh ourselves silly reading over it. I’ve been slacking off journaling lately … 🙂 I’ll regret it. 🙂 Memories forgotten.

    1. Dear Shelli, I appreciate your reminder, as I have a journal for each of my children I started when I got pregnant—I keep forgetting to write in them. It’s fun to read old entries and pen prayers. ❀ But we can trust God to motivate us to do what must be done. There are so many flags waving for our attention in this life.

      1. That’s a wonderful idea Wendy and would make a really lovely gift for people too. Maybe you could approach Diane Denton to see if she might design your cover. X

  4. It’s evident that you do spend time with God. Your medley and your photographs show that so beautifully, Wendy. You have encouraged me too. And I do journal each morning, spending time with God. Sometimes I draw out the verse and I write notes of praise and ask for lots of help. 🙂

  5. Wendy, I journal in the morning, too. Cuppa coffee, My Utmost for His Highest, and Jesus Calling. I choose a verse and away I go. Thanks for blessings, intercessory prayers, requests for myself, always asking to be closer, to know Him more deeply. Sometimes I get inspiration for my poetry during those times. Sometimes, I simply sit with Him and enjoy the being. Those times are special, as you well know. In the silence and beauty of the relationship.

  6. Oh my goodness, what a feast for the senses this post and its photos are!! And I’m so sorry I’m so late in telling you that. I’m so far behind and the faster I go, the behinder I get it seems. The RLS has been awful lately but hopefully the new med wiil help with that and I’ll finally get caught up. In the meantime I hope all is well with you and yours. Hugs, N 🙂 <3

    1. Dear Natalie, I’m always honored by your visits as I know you have a very busy blog. It’s never too late at my place for friends. <3 Blessings on your health and your week. ❀

    1. Thank you, Kath. I adore spring. In fact, I’m positive Heaven will have all the lovely attributes of eternal spring (plus the lovely fruits and vegetables of summer). Blessings on your weekend. ❀
