In addition to writing, I also love poetry.  Poems inspire us, make us think, and stir within us certain emotions.  One of my favorite poetic passages from the Bible is the verse mentioned above.

Now, while we know that it is not to be taken literally, doesn’t it paint a very vivid picture of the awesomeness of God’s natural creation?  It also helps us to appreciate that in a figurative sense, simply their sheer beauty and splendor shout out praises to His name.  How so?  Well, most of us have heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”  So, if a picture can tell a story just as well as a large amount of descriptive text, then how much more so can the marvelous things that our Heavenly Father has created!

When I was younger, I used to write poetry.  What about you?  Have you written any?  If so, you are actually painting with words.  Imagine that!  And simply writing a few lines expressing what’s in your heart could in fact brighten the day of someone who really needs some encouragement.  What are some things you do to compose your thoughts in an imaginative and heartfelt way?  Please feel free to share your concepts and ideas.

Well, that’s all for now.  Good night, and HAPPY READING!

As always, this is from my heart to yours,
