Holiday Poetry

True Thanksgiving
True Thanksgiving has the power to transform our lives, as well as our communities. In a day of when rage and envy are driving the outbursts on the internet and in our streets, true thanksgiving would promote peace, joy and unity.

Thankful Ebenezer Tradition (Golden Tags)
I wanted to capture a tradition my family and I started a little over a decade ago with Thanksgiving and Christmas. Sometimes it's been tough to look through the tags because not all were always seen as positive--they were also significant events.

It's an Ode to War Veterans placed in time at the end of WWII. Give honor to whom honor is due, and praying for The Lord's soon return.

Happy Hospitalidays
On December 24, 2021, my husband had a heart attack, which thankfully, he survived. I wrote this poem almost a year later in memory of that event. God was good to us in so many ways, and this little writing recounts His goodness and mercy.

Thanksgiving was my first husband's favorite holiday. I wrote this poem on 11-15-07 because he was sick battling Colon Cancer and I knew he probably wouldn't be with us another year. He died August 11th, 2008.
