Contest Winner: Dream, Planted

I was thrilled to win first place in the poetry division of the All Write Now! Conference contest this year with the following poem. I hope it inspires you! *** You were the sunflower seed I hid inside the time capsule twenty-five years ago, buried in the fall of my thirteenth year.

Prayer for Holy Week #5

This is the final prayer in a series of Easter prayers, featuring photos from my friend’s recent trip to the Holy Land.  Today’s photo was taken at a tomb in Jerusalem. I have also incorporated the prompt “Empty” for today’s Five Minute Friday linkup.   Jesus, I thank you for the strength you displayed that horrible Friday.

Prayer for Holy Week #4

This is the fifth prayer in a series of Easter prayers, featuring photos from my friend’s recent trip to the Holy Land.  Today’s photos are from the Garden of Gethsemane.   You first gave us life in a garden, a perfect creation full of wonder.

Prayer for Holy Week #3

This is the fourth prayer in a series of Easter prayers, featuring photos from my friend’s recent trip to the Holy Land.  Today’s photos are from the Sea of Galilee.   On the banks of this sea men left everything behind and followed you, Jesus.
