WORDS. Day 15, counting down #25daysofgood

I cleaned my desk


the place where I write and think, 

my grandpa’s sharpener at the ready, and 

piles straightened, clearing the way.

For a new day and new words 

reach for me with a longing I struggle to comprehend

and my wary heart finally believes

good really does reside within 


despite those who laugh at my lofty



my writing space is good.

 What’s YOUR good today?

Day 22 in the #25daysofgood countdown

I’m so grateful to have not one but two careers I love. Writing and nursing.

Helping people heal is my good for today, as it has been for more than two decades. 

What I’ve realized in these years is that we’re all more alike than different, that no one wants to be in pain, that we all cling to life when it is threatened, that everyone gets scared when they can’t breathe, that each of us wants the places in us that are oozing to be covered.

Thank the Lord for medicine, for technology, for research, for doctors and housekeepers and everyone in between who make our health system work, and who do good every day.

Mercy. A poem.Β 

Mercy, it’s morning at last, 

glory and grace 

rise like dawn,

the night shadows

fleeing with 


as justice 


their play.


my cup



Sometimes dawn is enough to make joy rise in our hearts again, isn’t it? I’m thankful this morning for so many of the Lord’s mercies and His unfailing kindness and goodness, His steadfast love and protection. 

In this season of busy-ness as school winds down and summer comes at last and new journeys begin, what blessings of the Lord make your heart overflow today?
