Are we different..~by Hana Shishiny — OUR POETRY CORNER

Are we different.. When waves of love drench my world And breeze of magic evokes my soul It is you I seek to hold And toward your love,I send the call. In your poems, flowers bloom Fields of lavenders,tulips and Roses Extravagant thoughts fill my room Musk of heaven in exultant doses… No […]

I praise You because You know me

I praise You for the times that You came through for me

I praise You because by Your grace I made it through some really hard times

I praise You for sending people in my life who care

I praise You for the support that these loved ones give

I praise You that even when things get though, You are always there

I praise You for preparing me to face the storms that come, even before I know that they are coming

I praise You for Your patience and kindness

I praise You even in this season of waiting

I praise You because  nothing is unknown to You

I praise You for the many benefits and blessings you bestow on me

I praise You for letting me use Your resourses

I praise You for creating spectacular wonders

I praise You Lord, because  You are good

Bless the Lord all my soul

Psalm 103:1-4 (ESV)

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and all that is within me,
    bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
    and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
    who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
    who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy





finding equality in our atrocities


The way we respond to ideas has morphed.
They work differently now.
We experience them more like a virus spreading a plague than they do building blocks
one can take and reshape and build concepts and patterns out of.

(a chilly January night in Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2019)

I must admit my head has been a bit in the sand as of late—not due to hiding, but just due to life.
Be it the pollen or the crud I’ve been battling on and off for the past several weeks, or
a few personal diversions, or simply be it from the clanging din from all things media
of “The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming….”

All of whom were never coming…
So we can all pull the vodka back out because I think we’re safe…

And so I say all of this because I have…

Who do the crowds say I am?

Who do the crowds say I am?

Who do you say Jesus is ?

As you look around  and observe

As you  stay home with your family

As you  walk down the street

As you drive to and from work

As ride the train or bus

As you are raise your children

As you pursue higher learning

As you do business

As you care for your old parents

As you care for loved ones

Who do you say Jesus is?

Is He your savior

Your peace

God’s Son

Your hiding place

Your refuge

Your help

Your King

Your friend

Who do you say Jesus is?

Luke 9:18-20 English Standard Version (ESV)

Peter Confesses Jesus as the Christ

 Now it happened that as he was praying alone, the disciples were with him. And he asked them, “Who do the crowds say that I am?” And they answered, “John the Baptist. But others say, Elijah, and others, that one of the prophets of old has risen.” Then he said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” And Peter answered, “The Christ of God.”
