Word of the Day Challenge, Word Prompts

WONDERING a short story

Opening my eyes while thinking, how bright it was outside my window, oh it snowed again; reaching for the covers while pulling them up over my shoulders; why is it so cold I wondered.

Feeling for the alarm, wondering about the joy I felt; I had another hour to sleep, turning over. I’ll just quickly hop out of bed, turn up the heat to warm the house and get back under the cozy, fuzzy blankets for another hour.

Not so fast! What’s this strange dizziness, I wondered, falling back into my pillows and safe zone, confused and anxious, I tried again to get up. To no avail! Quickly fell back sinking into the softness of my bed. I wondered what in the world is going on!

I realized all that brightness I thought was snow outside my window was in actuality the bedroom lights had been turned on.
Gulp! Who are all these people in my room I wondered! No one is looking familiar, and why are they just ignoring me! “Hey!” I screamed.

“No use,” a voice said, “they can’t hear you because you’re dead!”

“Like a candle, your flame burnt out and now you are all mine!”

“Yours,” I screamed, “who are you?”

“Don’t you know, I am the one you have been serving for the past several decades.”

Ah! Another Challenge

Conversation Hearts that Tell the Truth

REVERSE is the word of the day!

Why is it the Democrats always cheer for the reverse side of the Republican party?

I encourage all Republicans to be a good sport and send a message, given to the Dems, sugar-coated conversational hearts celebrating the end of February the month of peace and love. All in fun…of course!  ♥

Not so fast, ignore that first thought after looking at Fandango’s challenge!

skipIt

After a while, the inspiration that came to me was to illustrate a comparison — comparing the supernatural with the natural.

Picture this in your mind if you can! God creates, He creates humans.

Why? He creates that we may be happy with Him forever in heaven. However, our purpose first while here on earth is to serve Him by obeying Him.

In our era today, however, man rejects God. Yet, although refusing God’s plan, they imitate it; by creating robots to serve them. We call this artificial intelligence; it is artificially wrought because it lacks emotion, cold without beauty has no goal impossible to look to its end. Fake because it does not; like the birds, flowers, and bees, the robot does not praise God. This is what humanity is evolving to, robots without a purpose in life!

#FOWC, SoCS

Don’t Take it that Serious —

Linking to SoCS and  FOWC two challenges from popular bloggers here on WordPress.

The theme of today is “Critic”! My written commentary begins with a few quotes I am reminded of;  reminded because these two quotes are a few rules of my life. Number one:

“He has a right to criticize who has the heart to help.” ~Abraham Lincoln

Also this quote

“When criticized, consider the source.”

People, in general, criticized along the lines of their mindset! Which changes from time to time, depending on who their hero for the day is or if they have a properly formed conscience.
Whenever you read a critic or criticism, consider the source and begin thinking for yourself, obey your conscience, your creed and most likely whatever you hear is another theory not based on facts, but according to the narrative of the critic. Above all trust in God!  Your health will improve you might even add years to your life.

Maybe the Intelligent are the Stupid

“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that, in the modern world, the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubts.”
Do you concur with Mr. Russell’s perspective? Why or why not?

One particular feature I love about blogging is the learning — example today the question ABOVE of #FPQ ASKED  came up about Bertrand Russell and his ^ quote.

dVerse, Supernatural Reality

Found Poetry of why Catholics Honor Mary

Learning something as I go along — i.e. what is “found poetry?”

Plus an added bonus in that dVerse wants poetry regarding Privileges.

Reading here on WordPress from other knowledgeable bloggers aroused my interest.  I did what any other person does these days, search google.

Wanting to try it, I decided to go for the Bible and see what poetry I could find.  After researching “found poetry” and the rules, there were none — changing, switching words, cutting, pasting adding or subtracting anything is permitted as part of the creativeness.

However

I was at a disadvantage searching the Bible because, well you know the Bible is the Word of God; therefore having to be careful not to change the context was a must.

Taken from the Book of Luke; Chapter 1

Title of my “found” poem

The PRIVILEGE of Mary

(verse 26)    Angel Gabriel
(29)               His word
(30)               Hast found grace
(35)               Power of the Most High
(38)               The angel departed
(42)               Blessed art thou among women
(46)               Mary said
(48)               All generations shall call me BLESSED

With the exception of seeking into the Bible for God’s Words. 

Otherwise the art of FOUND POETRY, in my opinion, the art is in the montaging of words.

Daily Spur, true story

And, It Happened to Me, REALLY — True Story

 

Usually, it is not my thing to write about my personal life. Love reading about yours but mine is on the dull side. That was until a few days ago which results in the inspirational title of this blog.  Today is special since it really happened to me!

Washington State having been inundated with snow during the last few weeks; even declared an emergency. So picture this; living in a home with a steep, metal roof. Yes, you can see where I am going with this story, but continue reading where the angels come in. Whoever said angels don’t exist and protect us is wrong.

There is one part of my home that the snow falls first, falling own to the porch below the roof. Hearing it fall I gazed out my window, noticing how cute my birdfeeder looked with the snow piled up to the sky. Grabbing my boots, and camera I started to venture down the walkway, where I needed to go to capture the picture.

This has never happened to me before which is why this is a special post, but I heard in my pee brain a voice, loud and clear; “STOP! don’t take another step.” I stopped and looked up to see there above just a little corner of snow that didn’t come down yet; it was at the edge of the roof above the spot where I intended to walk for the best view of my birdfeeder. From my viewpoint not realizing the danger I took another step, just then I heard the creaking above, and I instinctively froze.

I was wrong it was not just a little bit of snow, behind it was such a force, it shot off my roof, over the porch above me and on to the sidewalk just in front of me where I was standing frozen in fear. It knocked me over face down into the snowdrifts beside me; it felt as if a cannonball hit my upper back and neck. However, because I did hesitate and stopped just before the avalanche, instead of standing in full line I was only standing at the end of the snow line.

I did manage to get up, retrieved my camera which flew in the snowdrifts, retreated inside the house, pondered about the experience as to what could have been but wasn’t.

After a few moments, I climbed over the snow-covered walkway and took the coveted picture. Today I am reminded by the experience with a souvenir whiplash on my neck and of course, the birdfeeder picture is seen below.

Heaven on Earth, Somewhere!

How exciting! #FFFC his photo prompt; the image reminded me immediately of what I heard in school many years ago.

A picture of the Garden of Eden, described in the Bible; this is how I imagine it before Adam and Eve offended God. There are many theories about its location today, just thinking about it stirs the imagination further.

As we look at the image CLICK  here;

We experience total peace, if you listen carefully you really can hear the melody of heavenly music, vision the garden perfumed with lush vegetation, forever youthful, true love, beauty and complete friendship of all the animals. Living forever without fear or disease.
“Heaven, don’t miss it for the world.”

The Butt-Kicking Prayer

I’m all in favor of letting God decide as to who is LOST and who are the ones deserving of PARADISE — tired of hearing the Left show how the Right is so wrong and vice versa. Aren’t you?

For me, it was New York when Governor Cuomo signed a NEW law stating killing of newborns legal.

Let’s let God decide!

I heard about this “butt-kicking prayer” for those who are offending God, prayers to wake them up.  Change boy to all offenders and one nation praying for another then sit back and watch God decide who are the offenders and who are the protectors of His law.

Great short video and very entertaining too! Just imagine when you watch to change the boy mentioned as a group not only one boy. Imagine prayers going up to heaven to God that His truth to be known down below to the offenders with no brains.  No one wants to harm anyone; just to warn them.
