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

Updated on December 2, 2016

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

One grandson sat up straighter in his seat

and looked at me

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 the compliment, comment and for sharing and thank you for all the many blessings.

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

      Blessings and hugs dear friend

      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.
