from where i come…

i’m taking an online art class from Misty Mawn! check it out HERE.  it was such a sweet gift from my sweet mother-in-law, Pam. 🙂 thanks Pam! it’s going to be SO much fun and i’m sure you’ll see bits and parts of it as i share what i learn. this is my first assignment for the class.

a poem:

i come from a blessed place. this i know without a doubt.

i come from a place on the edge of mountains;

where the sun warms your very soul.

i come from a blessed house.

i come from a home full of love and laughter;

where i knew i belonged.

i come from a blessed family.

i come from childhood of joy and innocence;

where peace was found in a corner with a good book.

i come from a blessedly adventurous life.

i come from an adolescence of exploration;

where the glory of God overwhelmed me with His love.

i come from a blessed imagination.

i come from a hardworking, stubborn girl;

who won’t give up even when it seems hopeless.

i come from a blessed love.

i come from a marriage filled to the brim;

with love, hope, trust and friendship.

i come, knowing i’m truly blessed.

i come here with open hands;

waiting, just waiting, for the next blessing that i don’t deserve.

{please note. i know that i am not good at this, i am not a poet in any sense and that this is hardly anything. i just wanted to do it because it was a suggested assignment for the class. thanks for bearing with me.}

    Love the poem – do not put it aside as ‘hardly anything’!! It speaks of warmth and safety, love and life. I smiled in remembrance of my childhood, my 20s, my marriage. It all blends together to make you who you are and bring you to the place of now. Well done. Thank you for sharing it!

    Please do say that your words are hardly anything. They come from your heart and soul. They resonate within you. Great work! Thanks for sharing.
