Here are my funnies
Writing a poem in the Villanelle poetry form, at least for me, was a brain exercise. Yet, I need a brain workout today! Mindlovemiserymenagerie posted instructions on how to write a Villanelle. A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa. The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last couplet (last two lines). You can read a great example on their post by clicking here. My humble attempt can be read below. I was hoping to express how those of us who are considered to be SEPTUAGENARIAN OR OLDER really feel inside our souls. The youth will never engage That our souls will never get old Upon arriving at old age Inside — Seniors feel caged The aged will uphold The youth will never engage We old citizens feel as if onstage Not at all controlled Upon arriving at old age We imagine; deem not changed We can dance and feel quite bold The youth will never engage Our thinking never disengaged We are as if thirty-three years yet untold Upon arriving at old age The truth of the soul will never assuage To one who hasn't reached what fate molds The youth will never engage Upon arriving at old age
Friday Fictioneers story with 100 words including the prompt image below:
“Okay, students,” the drama teacher yelped out! “We need some new ideas, our next assignment is coming up, and it’s up to you!”
“We are going for a long ride today to discover.”
As they drove along for hours, they passed rural roads, crossed bridges, and passed deserted areas; interesting sites, yes!
Yet, they could not agree.
Suddenly they all screamed harmoniously — STOP!
“Let your imagination get to work; many ideas to work with right here! Remember that abandoned movie set years ago,” said the teacher. “Little did they know then what we can do with it today!”
Today truly a joyous day, however, when a awoke I found this in my email, difficult to watch I know but glorious at the same time to know that God was looking and working His Care during the making of the movie “Passion of Christ.” This actor known as Jim Caviezel who played the role of Jesus during the creation of this movie has been outcasted by Hollywood for his part, proving how much Hollywood hates goodness and Truth. Yet, the interesting point about this short clip here is how Jim Caviezel almost gave his own life for the making of this film.
Please watch! A Miracle and VICTORY!
No doubt about this VICTORY STORY
Yesterday was Good Friday, and I spent several hours in Church participating in the liturgies of the memories, as we are encouraged by Holy Church.
Today, the Church refers to as Holy Saturday; I feel empty, knowing many Christians want His Resurrection but not His Cross; I cry!
Remembering how He was placed into the tomb and closed, separated, I feel deep mourning. We, the laity and the Church spend at Our Lord’s sepulcher, this day meditating on His Sacred Passion and Death. There is no Mass; the sacred altar is bare.
Knowing that Jesus at any time could have said NO! STOP! I will redeem them without all this suffering, but would we appreciate it if He did? This is the Mystery of our Faith! Remember too, how SHORT our life is on earth, even 100 years is short compared to eternity!
Writer’s Quotes challenge, join in with an Easter Quote, click here
Easter is the most important day for those following the Church because it proves that Jesus Christ is God, who else could have risen from the dead, and the Jewish people never denied that fact! God bless them!
Today is Holy Thursday, it reminds us of the First Mass that Traditional Catholics enjoy, although hard to find these days not unlike the modern service you will find in your neighbor churches. The True Mass of all times actually suspends time. Believe it!
There we will meet Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul, and His Divinity at Holy Communion.
Today while searching for something spiritual to watch, I found this video, perhaps you too will find it interesting about Holy Thursday. Video link

Piku – A three-line poem. The first line has three syllables. The second line is one syllable. The third line has four syllables.
~St. Therese of Lisieux also known as The Little Flower her quote above.
Make sure your Faith is not considered KAPUT for lack of a better word, the word prompt for today! Kaput
Mark 3:28-29, ….” But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never have forgiveness but is guilty of an everlasting sin.”
We can’t live a life of sin while hoping that we still will make it to heaven one day.
Of Christians who believe ONLY in words, “believe in Jesus Christ and be saved.” Redeemed, yes, but to be saved, they must act. But they continue their lives of living in sin, believing that they will be held unaccounted for — without a change — since Jesus died for our sins. They forget that He redeemed them, but they must amend their lives, not presume they are saved without giving up their sins.
It is not ME, warning, it is the WRITTEN WORD & I QUOTE. Here we can read not only FAITH; we must amend our life.
“Seest thou, that faith did co-operate with his works; and by works faith was made perfect? … Do you see that by works a man is justified; and not by faith only?”
King James Version (KJV 1900)22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? verse 22 – You see, his faith and his actions worked together. His actions made his faith complete. The actions are works, not just words. Beware of presumption, meaning to only presume you are saved and continue a life of living in sin.
Forgive me if I sound like I am pointing at you or judging, I am NOT! I feel inspired to write this because it happened to me, the evil one deceived me into actually believing that God was pleased with my life, although I knew in my heart, I was living in sin. Deception is a true chimera delusion.
Look out there and see You are not alone Off in the distance, see the light It's there! Just reach out! Grasp! Don't give up; stretch, reach across! Deception keeps you apart — Ignore that torrent! A chimera an illusion Delay NOT! It's later than you think!
Can’t say it enough!
Beads to hold between fingers.
Living, breathing, life’s weapon!
We pray first through the short links—
Represent — our life, short! Next
The endless circle — Eternity!
Suggesting infinity! Never-ending beads
Slip along the ring around a blessed
String. Perfumed as the scent of a rose
Rising to heaven! She offers us her
Baby Son! It all began with the angel’s
Words, “Hail Mary full of grace.”
God’s creation perfectly as His Mother
Must be! She gave us the rosary!
The LETTER E is the theme for today; some of my favorite words begin with the letter E. Eternity for one! Yes, I live in the real world, which is not this world; thank God it’s not since all I see is misery. No wonder God said, my Kingdom is not of this world.
Yes I see the misery, but with God’s grace, I am NO LONGER, part of it! Misery loves company, doesn’t it?
Now that I am coming to the end of my journey, I will say that I have lived the happiest life one could hope to live on this EARTH. Yes, I have regrets, mainly my sins; they were the only misery I experienced. Today the world’s sins are greater (opinion) than Sodom and Gomorrah. Perhaps that is why we are warned today about preparing for worse things to come.
Some other E words I am fond of are my EYES and EARS; thank you, God, I can see your truths and hear them too! How do I know they are His truths? His proof is enough for me. Read my series on why do I believe if interested.
I love this word “EAT” … now they say be prepared for world starvation; I just read “bird flu” is killing billions, or was that millions of chickens in the state of Iowa. Did you know you can freeze eggs, another E word, EGGS?
Click this link if you are looking for a special E word not listed within my post. EASY (another good one) RESEARCH.
A couple of quotes, there are so many but I liked these two.
“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.”- Spencer Johnson.
“Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.”- Albert Schweitzer. — Abortion comes to my mind!
