A Haiku - Blessings

When you need a blessing, one is always available.


Trouble sleeping now?

There's no need to count some sheep.

Blessings now abound.


Family can be one,

Eternal life another.

Choose your true blessings.


God knows you His child

He blest with free agency.

Use it wisely now.


Some blessings are earned.

Count them all and you can sleep.

Thanking God for each.




Visualize even a few of the many blessings you have had and those you have now.

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Leadership

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

Counting sheep is pulling the wool over your eyes. Yes, you can perhaps get to sleep that way, but counting your blessings is an eye opener to a more restful sleep. It assures you that you are not alone, and can even lead to happy dreams. Blessings.

Hello Demas - Sometimes we don't know the blessings that we have earned, but we can ponder doing them and making sure not to delay action. Blessings, Debby

We have to look beyond our tribulations. Here I sit with a broken leg, but I still feel so blessed. I think you got it right!
