Merry Month of May!

month-of-may-flowersWelcome to the merry month of May, my very favorite month of the year!   Why, you ask?  Well I suppose because I was born in May.  Of course,May brings Mother’s day when we honor our mothers, grandmothers, our daughters who are mothers, and mothers everywhere!   Sadly some of our mothers have been called home by God, so we no longer can celebrate the day with them; however we still can honor them in our hearts.

For those of us who live up north, May really shows us that Spring is here!   The weather is warmer (usually) and the trees are budding, the flowers are starting to bloom. We begin to catch up with our neighbors in the southern states who are already enjoying the blessings of Spring.

We, of course, cannot forget that May is the month in which we honor our fallen soldiers who gave the ultimate gift for our freedom and our veterans of many wars who survived the wars but have now been called home to be with our Lord.  May we never forget them!   May we honor them every day of our lives, not just on Memorial Day!

So, in short, welcome to the beautiful month of May!   Enjoy all the gifts and blessings God shows us in this beautiful month and in all the other days as well!


Killing words

Nicely said OM! Probably why I don’t write much any more though—I fracture too many words or more likely the words will not come to me very much.

I could kill a word and watch meaning bleed upon the floor. Highlighting the loss of savored literature.

Broken letters discarded like forgotten corpses. No headstone given for the simple letter A. Those are reserved for the Zs and Ws, their importance punctuated by limited usage. How sweet to become a part of a verb and feel the excitement of meaning. Instead we are normally shackled to two letter words that die at the end of sentences daily. And like walking the plank we jump from amateur pens into the sea of forgotten alphabets.

Still we writers sit daily at our trade. Killing words.
