To get a good harvest…

If you want a good harvest,
Take time and prepare the soil
For planting;
If you want a good harvest,
Plant good seeds on good soil;
If you want a good harvest,
Weed your farm;
If you want a good harvest,
Add manure to the soil
If need be;
Same goes for our lives.
If you want a good harvest
From your life,
Prepare the soil well
When you are young;
Sow good seeds in your mind;
Nourish them as time goes on;
Remove the weeds;
Your harvest will be good.

I must be honest to say I have never seen the word moxie before. This is the first time I have seen it. This confirms the richness of the English language. The English language has a rich vocabulary and I believe the more words one masters the better one is able to express one’s thoughts and also understand those of others.

Moxie is a beautiful word which can mean energy, courage, determination or know-how. I do not have the moxie of a young man (energy), but I have enough moxie (courage and determination) to achieve my blogging dreams within the next few years.

What about you? Do you have the moxie to pursue your dreams?

Solidly tethered

On the Lord, I tether my thoughts;
On the Lord, I tether my goals;
On the Lord, I tether my dreams;
On the Lord, I tether my life;
On the Lord, I tether my marriage;
On the Lord, I tether my family;
On the Lord, I tether my business;
On the Lord, I tether my service;
I am solidly tethered.

I tender my apology

I wish to tender
My apology
To you,
My sweet, tender spouse,
For not being as tender as
I should be,
To you so tender as you are;
You have a tender heart,
And show real tender
Love and care to me;
May God grant me
The grace of a tender mind
To be as tender to you
As I should be.

Pungent smell

The smell was pungent;
And came from the kitchen;
Surely, a rat had died there.

Week End Writing Trigger No 4 Encourgement

You may have many topics to write on this week End; but there is one I want you not to fail to write on: encouragement. If you have any story of what encouragement has done for you or another, it can be a good thing to share it.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe says,”Instruction does much but encouragement everything.” Tell me what these words by Ed Sheeran mean to you: “Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, then it’s not the end.”
John Maxwell, a great writer, holds that encouragement is capable of changing anyone who receives it.

This week-End, I encourage you to write about encouragement. It could be an article, a poem, a quote; you may comment on a favorite quote on encouragement; you may tell the story of someone who was transformed by encouragement or your own story of when encouragement from a friend, a parent, brother or sister or teacher made a difference in your life.

If you finish, forward the link to me. I will first read it and then encourage others to read it.
