Reflection - 36th Good Word in the Good Words Project.

Updated on August 24, 2016

Reelections - 36th Good Word

The "Good Words" project, created by Jo_Goldsmith11, Jo gives us a good word each week to reflect on and practice living by, to help and inspire her fellow hubbers, to become the best writers we can be.

And I reaffirm my pledge to write a poem for every word in the "Good Word Project," some Hubbers like Maria (Marcoujor) have taken the baton and twirled it all around and I truly hope that others will join in also.

Faith - Hope -Love

Reflections

© Shyron Shenko

Reflection on the Good Words from 1-8

Now is the time we must reflect

On all the good words

To keep them up to date


This is like half a semester exam

For the first 8 weeks of the Good Words

A reflection if you will

Of how we’ve practiced each good word

How we have honed our skill


Love is where we will start

So we can see just where we are

Reflecting on the Good Words

Given us thus far


1. Love

Reflections of love to light the stars

Shining brightly in our hearts

It is contagious

Once the practice starts


2. Faith

When you reflect on your faith you will not be misled

By the unkind things that others said

Have faith in your heart when all hope is forgotten.

My Granddaughter Krissy says


3. Inspiration/inspire

Reflections to inspire everyone to be more

Than they ever thought they could be

Practice inspiration in every way you can

That is one sure way to lend a helping hand

4. Strength

Reflect the Strength to always take a stand

To fight for what is right

And demand that there be justice in our land

Remember God has the greater plan


5. Energy

Reflections of Energy

Energy is the fuel for our 'light 2 love'

A light that's given to everyone of us

With God's everlasting Love

7. Hope

Reflect on Hope when you feel like giving up

And it seems there is no hope in sight

Then become an author Pick up your pen and write

Writing brings your problems out into the light

There are a lot of folks who can relate and will see you through you plight


6. Peace

Reflections of Peace

praying that all dissention will cease

If everyone would do this

Then all the problems of the world would surely decrease


8. Courage

Reflect on courage, it isn't hard to do

Just know that to stand for what is right

Will always see you through

Then you will find those that have no courage

Are really very few

      Au fait, thank you for the comment, compliment and for sharing.

      I know Christmas is almost here and I have nothing done, and New Year around the corner, but which corner?

      I was going to call you earlier, but got busy and wrapping B-day present for Walter and getting ready for game tonight.

      Blessings and hugs right back to you dear friend.

      Great thought so well expressed here. Reflection is important so that we can see where we've been, if we've achieved our purpose or if we need to revisit and complete what we started, or perhaps change our strategy . . .

      Sharing.

      So hard to believe Christmas is just 3 weeks from today. And a New Year is just around the corner! Hope you and John are enjoying these pretty days we're having. Blessings to you dear friend . . .

      Kevin, thank you for the comments, compliment, thumbs up and thank you for the correction. (I have corrected the misspelling) but the word and switched the word with would (i.e. would surely) meaning I am sure that the problems would cease.

      You are such a wonderful friend.

      Blessings and Hugs

      Not just reflection here but inspiration! Each little poem holds a world of truth and beauty. I have to admit too, I am totally taken with Bear! What a beautiful dog.

      Bless you Shy in this new year and forward.

      Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

      That was nice Shyron and I agree with that entirely except for a typo. Under "Peace" you have 'surly' and I figured out what you meant but the meaning of the word that is there does not go good with your meaning. I rated this a high tumbs up, shared it and pinned it.

      Dear Maria, thank you for the comment and compliment...I too am loving working on the Good Words project and love your add "Musical Challenge" to this project.

      I also PROMISE to hold close the friends I have made along the way, (you are a treasure,) and this promise was made over and over again each time I click on the Follow.

      Reflection, or taking inventory of one's life and current situation can help a person determine if they're going the right way. It can also help put a new or modified plan together to keep going the desired way. Agree with your other commenters, also.

      A great poem for this time of year when a new year is about to begin and refection can help a person decide how to begin the rest of their life.

      Merry Christmas! Hugs and blessing to you and John -- one can never have too many . . .

      When the year is about to expire and a new one is on the horizon, really is a time for reflection. Looking back reminds me of the many new friends I've found through the good works project. The inspiration, the friendship is a blessing. Your poetry is very much a part of the inspiration. Well done Shyron...Hugs..

      Dear Shyron,

      You and Jo have been beacons of inspiration with the Good Words project in 2014...as I REFLECT back on this year, I have loved working on the project.

      In keeping with Jo's latest mantra of 'out with the old and in with the new', I PROMISE to hold close the friends I have made along the way (like you...!!) and to follow what exciting new projects are on the horizon for everyone.

      It will be exciting to see the whole series published at some point this year in e-book form as well.

      Merry Christmas to you and yours. Love and hugs, Maria
