My son finds so much magic in nature every day, the splash of a puddle, the buzz of a bee, the small rocks he often “acquires” qualifying them as treasure. His eyes, often more well-adjusted than my own, to just how wondrous life is.
Today’s tale was made with the Nature kit.
Want to play along?
I love playing around with the magnetic poetry blocks. I’m no poetry writer so I prefer to create a short story of sorts. The kits can be found here (and they are free):
“I still believe in Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and true love. Don’t even try to tell me different.”
Katie closed her eyes and prayed
It was, after all, a holiday
She didn’t often go to church
It didn’t resemble her faith much
Yet in her heart, she felt a pull
She always had since starting school
A little voice that said “believe”
And in that voice she found relief
It may not be the common faith
But in her heart, it had found its place
Be kind, be curious and in all things love
This was the faith that she dreamed of.
This week’s topic on WQW was Faith/Hope. A difficult subject. One I am highly unqualified to discuss in reality so I have gone for a simple poem. I believe everyone’s faith is personal to them, in the same way each friendship, romance, dream, desire and life is personal. I don’t think a one-size-fits-all will ever be accepted by everyone, so your beliefs or faith may be slightly different to the next person, but that’s okay. The closest single message is the #BEKIND campaign, which I think all of the world wishes was more true. ❤
