What have you decided for this new year – 2020?
I decided I’d like this month of travel in California to be safe, fun, full of family and friends, and memorable. I prayed to God for an answer to this prayer.
I believe God hears prayer, and answers it.
Of course, I know it is not always YES.
Sometimes He says, “NO!” because He has something better in mind for us.
Sometimes He says, “NOT NOW… be patient. WAIT!”
But, He answers… I believe He gives us what we ask for
if we ask in faith with His Will in our hearts.
When I want what He wants for me, it’s easy to BELIEVE in the power of prayer!
Trust in the JOY of His Love.
Trust in the whispers of the Holy Spirit. Listen carefully!
Live in the COMFORT of His promises.
Live in the SERENITY of His peace.
Live in the TRUST that dreams do come true.
We are living ours.
HOW ABOUT YOU?
I am going to try my hand at this Scansion shared by Abigail Gronway on her

The Daisy Chain may contain any number of lines.
The last word of each line becomes the first word of the next line.
Finally, the last word of the last line is the same as the first word of the first line, completing the chain.
Like the Wreath, the Daisy Chain requires no meter, rhyme, or mandated line or stanza length.
Abigail added, “I threw in a little twist of my own: a poem within a poem. The first word of each line can be read together to give the theme of the whole.” That REALLY makes it challenging! Try it!! Here’s mine:
CHAIN OF DAISIES
Daisies are a little like angels.
Angels with a certain white flair are…
Are an invitation to serenity.
Serenity with a heart of golden yellow.
Yellow gold at the core.
Core of gold is a gift from our Father in Heaven.
Heaven is where serenity lives always.
Always seek that peace in your imagination.
Imagination can be real now –
Now that you’ve see the chain of daisies!
Only God knows when
The Son of Man will come.
When we least expect Him,
He will overwhelm some.
But, as Christians, we
Won’t be surprised at all.
God already is with us,
So we live expecting His call.
We can’t solve our mortality.
We can’t achieve eternal life.
We know our days are limited
As we live in both joy and strife.
Our lives are vulnerable;
We find security in routine.
But with God, no day is mundane.
We are at risk. Know what I mean?
When God is revealed in you,
You live expecting the end,
And you understand intrusion
With continuation around the bend.
God will come, so be prepared.
He’ll come to you and lift you
To life in His Kingdom.
In anticipation, know He’ll shift you.
Divine Advent; Be ready!
God will break in like a thief in the night.
He will just show up!
So, better live in His Light.
