Epiphany - 46th Word in the "Good Words" Project.

Updated on June 24, 2020

The "Good Words" Project

Epiphany the 46th Good Word in the "Good Words Project." The Light to Love, Good Words Project was created by Jo 'Grace' Goldsmith, (Jo_Goldsmith11) to inspire her fellow Hubbers to be the best writers/authors/poets they could possible be.

When Grace told me about the project, I made he a promise to write a Poem for each "Good Word" given us, and express what that word means to me.

A special thanks to you Grace for nudging us on.

This is an Epiphany

Epiphany - how I chose this word

One January 6th on "all kings day"

The day to put Christmas decorations away

I took my grandsons to church with me.

The priest told of the Magi and Epiphany

At the word Epiphany my youngest

grandson sat up straighter in his seat

and looked at me strangely.

When we came home, he told me he had an Epiphany

Epiphany

© by Shyron Shenko

Epiphany – a flash of understanding

With divine inspiration

A revelation of what is to be

Inspired with sudden knowledge

Sudden Insight into who we are

Into where we belong

A revelation of truth

of all that is right or wrong

A divine blessing

a manifestation of all that is good

A striking appearance

An Epiphany is a prophecy of truth.

Have you ever experienced an Epiphany?

      Au fait, thank you for returning to read this, and thank you for the blessings which I need. I am blessed that the flood was in my garage and not in the house. Although the damage was minimal John had a lot tools that were never opened and they were stacked on the floor and their cartons were ruined. I think you can guess why I have not been on HP in the last couple of days.

      Hope all is well with you. Blessings and hugs dear friend.

      Here we are in the middle of a shutdown as the result of the Coronavirus. Lots of people imagine it won't last long, but I think it's just getting rolling. Those in the know believe we are just a little behind Italy and will be in the same circumstances as they are in a week or so, with hundreds of people dying daily due to poor preparation and planning. As you know Trump and the Republicans did nothing for the first month when it was just taking hold over here. Even today they are still squabbling over how much money to allow the poor people in this country who are unemployed as a result of the virus or who are unable to help themselves due to poverty. Then there are the small businesses trying to survive whilst being forced to close their doors . . . there will be a lot of pain to go around for the ordinary people.

      I do hope you are staying home as much as you can and away from anyone who may be infected. Since there's even now very little testing there is no way to know who to stay away from. I hope the Lord will walk with you wherever you go and protect you from this pestilence.

      I'm going to post this excellent poem on AH & FB. Blessings dear friend . . .

      It's been several years since I was here. I'm surprised I haven't been back sooner. I have had a few epiphanies over my lifetime, but none come to mind just now.

      Hope all is well with you dear friend. Take care and stay in where it's cool. Forecast in our area is for 100º, give or take a degree, until at least the middle of this month (Aug). Blessings my friend . . .

      Things around here have been so crazy that I don't remember if I had a nice day. Tired of the rain.

      The council is getting everything they want, at least the ones who would sell their own mother are.

      Blessings and hugs and wishing you miracles also.

      I have epiphanies all the time, but not usually about anything earth shattering. Back to share this again.

      Hope you and John are enjoying the cooler weather and not floating away with all the rain. Have been thinking about you and all the problems with the counsel, etc. I wish I knew a good solution.

      Wishing you blessings and miracles . . .

      When one is lucky enough to have several *epiphany's* in a lifetime, than they should really feel blessed. And I think that in each stage of our lives, this is truly possible. Great poetry as always!

      You are a blessing! Thank you for your epiphany of the beautiful contributions for each good word!

      Up she goes..Interesting, Beautiful, Useful, and Awesome :-))

      Shared too. ((((((((((((((((( Shyron )))))))))))))))

      Lovely poems. I especially like the play around the eclassiastical use of the term and your grandson's announcement of a personal epiphany. Good work! ~Cynthia

      A superb poem as always. You are expert when it comes to finding just the right words, and that is a gift, not something a person can learn.

      Voted up, BAUI, posted on Awesome HubPages, and shared. Hope you and John have had a great day and that all is well. Blessings and hugs . . . take care.

      I think most of us have experienced an epiphany of some kind before. The question is if we choose to capitalize on what we learn.
