I'm a journaler. I've written since I was 13. That was many decades ago! Every year I try to go back and read what I wrote the previous months. I don't always get through all the pages but when I do, it's always a blessing. I see where God has answered prayer and I often see the wisdom in the ones He didn't answer.
This year as I was reading the past months, I found this poem I wrote early one morning while sitting in the morning sun on my porch swing. That swing is my favorite place to think, pray, plan and write. I Photoshopped the poem over a picture of my garden path and I want to share it with you.
I also want to encourage you to journal if you don't already. It is a good way to organize your thoughts, get stuff off your mind before you take them out on someone else, pray, plan and even write a poem or two.
