Telling Taglines

Today’s JetPack prompt was:

If humans had taglines, what would yours be?

Hah! Time passes –
taglines change –
mine used to be
“Rabble-rousing Hummingbird!”

But now, my tagline
might more appropriately be

I’m sitting in my rocker,
up in my sanctuary,
listening to peaceful gospel music,
singing along,
and inviting my guardian Angel
to slow me down,
help me watch where I’m going,
and guide my steps carefully.

No more rabble rousing!

Just sit on my perch and chirp!

What’s your tagline?

Has yours changed for you
through the years, too?

This week my nephew, Liam,
and his mom (my niece)
and dad from PA
and good friend from UT
are visiting us.

Yesterday after church,
Liam tried his hand at chirping on the saw!
He is an adventuresome 16-year-old.
I’d give him the tagline of

He’s interested in learning –
Interested in trying everything.
He is learning to fly;
he’s going to flight school
as a high school junior.
An amazing kid!
He soars!

Oh my!

Sure hope my chirps are a bit more pleasant!
Takes a lot of practice
to make music that’s pleasing
while fiddling on a saw!

But if you have an adventuresome spirit,
you are ready to try something new –
and if it doesn’t work out
perfectly on the first try,
you explore …
and keep trying.
Eventually you can soar, too!

What does my tagline say about
my true identity?

Am I a chirping bird?
If so, what song do I sing?
Does it glorify my maker?

What’s your tagline?

Colossians 3:12 

Put on then, as God’s chosen ones,
holy and beloved,
compassionate hearts,
and patience,

Let’s all sing a happy song 🎶
and imagine our “Telling Tagline”
while we dream of soaring
to the best self we can be.
You with me?

Thanks for visiting
See ya tomorrow.

  1. So True.

  2. I like the portraits, Jan. I suppose mine would be Clicker

  3. Live life as a celebration❤️

  4. A great post Jan. I think you must be a chirping little wren! Full of energy with a big song. I think my tagline would be Fix-it Man or Do It Myself.

    Sometimes, a tagline is something only others around you can see. Just like jet jocks in our armed forces. Their call signs are those created by others, not themselves. I’m too close, I don’t know what my tagline would be. I’ll wait until one is assigned. Hopefully not the one that Jamie Sibold have me in high school.

  6. You are a delight to my soul!❤️❤️

  7. Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

    Birds are your central theme. What is your favorite bird? I love the yellow and black ones, and the blue birds, not to mention the cardinal….all so lovely. Yet as wonderful as they are, we are of much more value than they are to our Father. So chirp on sister. Keep sharing the good news. I love you! ❤️

    • Thank you, {{{Donna}}}. I am enjoying a quiet day with chirping birds outside. I love the meadowlarks and the robins. Little black wrens are all over our yard and trees, too. I do love birds… especially the ones that sing. The cawing of crows can be annoying and the selfishness of the magpies make me want to chase them away. Also, they eat the robin’s eggs! But I know God made them all with their individual characteristics for a reason.

    I love that Liam tried to play the saw with a bow. How fun!

  9. Inspiring post! Jan, you have me thinking about possible taglines to describe myself. Could there be a future poem waiting in the wings? I guess we’ll see.
