Saturday Stew 5
Jesus,
We praise You for all that You have done, for thinking of us at the very beginning of time, when there was nothing….seeing us through until we are something because of Your great love for us. Lord, I pray that as we go through our days and nights, wherever we are….geographically, emotionally, spiritually, physically….may we be emptied out of our selfish ways and be filled with Your compassion, forgiveness, strength, endurance, healing, trust, boldness, love and whatever else we may need to complete that task You have given us to do.

Recently, I attended my first writer’s group where we began our discussion with where the topics of the movies and books have traveled through the years. I love the black and white movies where they are singing, and I go through a case of Kleenexes (I know it’s pathetic, really). Drama movies always get me as well. I’ve even been known to bring Kleenexes to Superhero movies.

Ok. Ok. Before you click yourself away from my site with all this icky sap….there is a purpose for stating the above. I love to write, mostly poetry because I have yet to find a way of when I start……um, where was I?

While stirring the pot for today’s Saturday stew, I thought about the blogs I’ve been reading and what I want to share. Here are just a few –

The post by Spiritbath tells of a soldier’s disobedience because he understood what love is. http://spiritbath.com/2014/02/20/i-have-never-seen-an-example-of-loving-your-enemy-that-touched-me-this-profoundly/ ;

AB’s post “Extinction” a poem about a war that never ends. http://abozdar.wordpress.com/2014/02/20/extinction/ ;

OM’s post about children being in the middle of countries at war. http://aopinionatedman.com/2014/02/17/now-this-if-i-were-the-type-to-cry/ ;

and an incredible article by Holistic Wayfarer about a mother’s love and forgiveness. http://holisticwayfarer.com/2014/02/14/the-power-of-unstoppable-love/

“The tongue has no bones, but is strong enough to break a heart; so be careful with your words.”

Proverbs 18:21 “Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit-you choose.”

My words are powerful.

I’m not exactly sure where we are today in film or literature, but I know I can choose to start building bridges with my pen.

Your words are powerful. What would you like to add to this Saturday Stew?
