Wednesday's touch of Poetry

God is one in Three

I am one in me

And tho' I be so wee

In His eyes I see

My glimpse of eternity.

Wow...I think I just impressed myself with my own poem today! So that really means a direct inspiration from the Holy Spirit.

I would like to thank all of you who went to Tamara's Blog site yesterday to wish her well as she copes with having a heart attack and all that ensues from it physically as well as emotionally now...if anyone hasn't stopped in yet, please give her a note of cheer. Guess I should also tell you what that did for soon as I saw comments coming in to her last post I started bawling like a baby, called Michael at work and scared him half to death!!! So I immediately said, between sobs (how do the movie stars manage to talk and cry in movies????...that stumps me!) that it's okay, they are happy, happy tears. All of your goodness and caring just overwhelms me and even chokes me up right now!

Now you may be asking yourselves if I have forgotten about the great giveaway (or, after hearing some prize possibilities, you are saying THANK GOODNESS she has forgotten...shhhh, no one say anything to remind her). I will even start on tomorrow's post just so you can see something and find out the fun thing (at least from my perspective) that we can do to get the coveted whatever it is, giveaway!!! You will also learn something new and unusual about you may be wondering just how much more unusual can this strange woman get (so stay tuned, folks)???

Thoughts to ponder from over yonder (now THIS is my own inspired poetry):

"If you wonder where your child left his roller skates, try walking around the house in the dark.~Leopold Fechtner

Anything you lose automatically doubles in value. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
Everything is funny as long as it is happening to somebody else. ~Will Rogers

When the plane you are on is late, the plane you want to transfer to is on time. ~Author Unknown

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? ~Author Unknown

Never do anything that you wouldn't want to explain to the paramedics. ~Author Unknown

Shin: a device for finding furniture in the dark. ~Author Unknown

Why do they put the Gideon Bibles only in the bedrooms, where it's usually too late, and not in the barroom downstairs? ~Christopher Morley, Contribution to a Contribution

It is often easier to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission. ~Grace Hopper

The man who says he is willing to meet you halfway is usually a poor judge of distance. ~Author Unknown

It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions. ~Author Unknown

If you tell the boss you were late for work because you had a flat tire, the very next morning you will have a flat tire. ~Author Unknown

If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered. ~Edgar Allan Poe"

Some uplifting (for sure the corners of your mouth) jokes:

10-inches deep
A boy was sitting on a park bench with one hand resting on an open Bible. He was loudly exclaiming his praise to God. "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! God is great!" he yelled without worrying whether anyone heard him or not.

Shortly after, along came a man who had recently completed some studies at a local university. Feeling himself very enlightened in the ways of truth and very eager to show this enlightenment, he asked the boy about the source of his joy.

"Hey" asked the boy in return with a bright laugh, "Don't you have any idea what God is able to do? I just read that God opened up the waves of the Red Sea and led the whole nation of Israel right through the middle."

The enlightened man laughed lightly, sat down next to the boy and, with an air of superiority, began to try to open his eyes to the "realities" of the miracles of the Bible. "That can all be very easily explained. Modern scholarship has shown that the Red Sea in that area was only 10-inches deep at that time. It was no problem or miracle for the Israelites to wade across."

The boy was stumped. His eyes wandered from the man back to the Bible laying open in his lap. The man, content that he had enlightened a poor, naive young person to the finer points of scientific insight, turned to go. Scarcely had he taken two steps when the boy began to rejoice and praise louder than before. The man turned, with a frown, to ask the reason for this resumed jubilation.

"Wow!" exclaimed the boy happily, "God is greater than I thought! Not only did He lead the whole nation of Israel through the Red Sea, He topped it off by drowning the whole Egyptian army in 10 inches of water!"

The Historical Flight

Terri asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their favorite Bible stories. She was puzzled by Kyle's picture, which showed four people on an airplane, so she asked him which story it was meant to represent.

"The flight to Egypt," said Kyle.

"I see ... And that must be Mary, Joseph, and Baby Jesus," Ms. Terri said. "

But who's the fourth person?"

"Oh, that's Pontius-the Pilot.

One Easter Sunday morning as the pastor was preaching a children's sermon, he reached into his bag of props and pulled out an egg. He pointed at the egg and asked the children, "

What's in here?"

"I know, I know!" a little boy exclaimed, "pantyhose!"

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large tray of apples. A nun lettered a note and posted it on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching."

Moving along the lunch line, at the other end was a large tray of chocolate chip cookies. A girl wrote a note, which she put next to the tray of cookies, "Take all you want. God is watching the apples."

~~~~For all the incredible blessings of seeing the good things that wonderful people, like these who are here on Blog sites, can do to uplift and make this world a much better place, I so humbly thank You, dear God.


  1. What a wonderful poem! You are very talented! Cathy

  2. Good Morning, I love the poem! I hope that Tamara feels the love and prayers of her blog friends. I hope you have a very enjoyable day Marcy.

  3. I liked your poem Marcy. My mind was blank when it came to poetry today. That's why I went off about coffee! I found your poem very comforting!

  4. I forgot my poem! I'll run back now and fire some poor prose off!

    I think it's so sweet they way you have such deeply kind feelings for others. It's as if you feel what they feel, it's a Gift really. I think a lot of people can be moved by a story, but I feel that what you have is something different. I read recently about how blog friendships are not true friendships, but I don't agree with that at all. I feel a true kinship with others in this world, and I can see the same aspects of true friends displayed here, it's even more so because we don't rely on anything material to generate this friendship.
    I don't know if I'm making any sense. I'll try to do a post about it sometime soon.

    Suffice it to say, you are one of the sweetest people I've ever met ~ 'blog world' or 'real world'!

    'Loved your poem!
    'Loved your 'Murphy's Law' type words of wisdom quotes!
    'Loved your jokes!
    Love your ever-inspirational attitude!
    Your friend,

  5. Marcy, I agree with everything Eileen said, and I know what she is saying even if she doesn't LOL. I too love your post today but I have to tell you Marcy what I enjoy the most in all of your post is your daily prayer, showing you are thankful is a wonderful thing....Have a great day my friend.
    ....:-) Hugs

  6. Marcy, I just got finished reading what you wrote on Diana's blog and that's EXACTLY how I feel! It's so funny you said that. Extended family.
    And the weirdest thing is, my blog sisters mirror my real life sisters, the two good ones and the bad seed! And yet, miraculously, they love me anyway!
    It's like they see through my rotten crust and find some good in me. Whew!

  7. Thanks so so much for coming by my blog and leaving a comment....I hope you will visit again soon!


  8. Marcy, gosh, did those words in that poem come right out of your head? You're brilliant! I wish I could do that - inspire people the way you do I mean.

    And then to be able go to your funny part at the end without ever detracting from your serious bit, that's wonderful.

    love, Angie, xx

  9. Marcy you know it is true that you represent to the fullness what being kind to your fellow man means...Tamara is but one example...I believe all of us have become friends for a reason...each of us giving and receiving different things from each other.

    Smile and take care!

  10. Marcy, your poem was inspired. Words from God to you...shared beautifully with us.
    I sent the joke about the little boy (Red Sea) on...and on.. That was a great one!!

  11. --gglggl-- These are precious little "kidspeaks"! Loved the poem, too! And, love the spirit of your "home" here on the world wide web every day. It's always full of light, fun, encouragement, and the love of God. What better place to find friends?

  12. I loved your poem today Marcy. God has placed eternity in the hearts of man. This puts life in perspective...Thankyou for your inspiration.

  13. The poem is simply delightful and packed full of truth! I'll be expecting some more - they are your "word doodles" - like (is it) Dee's doodles only with words. Keep it up.

  14. Your poem was great Marcy. I loved it ♥
    Regarding Charli.... She will only let me comfort her if I sit in the closet or on the floor in the bathroom with her. Our son originally owned Charli for two weeks. He named her himself. Charli was a handful and his wife really didn't like her because of all of her needs. Our son asked us if we would take her so he could continue to see her and she wouldn't have to go to the pound. Charli was such an emotional wreck that we didn't have the heart to change her name even though she was only eight weeks old. We have been thinking about maybe getting her a little pool. Thanks for asking about her ♥


Comments are blessings too...
