Daily Bread For An Election On Edge

My wise neighbor told me on Tuesday that, not Wednesday,
but probably Thursday is when we’d see unrest and protest.
And so, I said, well, we just have to keep on praying. Praying
for peace. God said when we pray for the good gift of the
Holy Spirit that he’d give it to us. Peace is a fruit of the Holy
Spirit and so I pray “give us your Holy Spirit” on Wednesday.
I’ll pray it on Thursday, too, because we need to eat every day.

#Gratiku #Thankspoem

During the month of November, I will be joining Teach Write in the #Gratiku challenge, in which we write and share a gratitude haiku (or other poemish piece) every day in November. I may not write every day, but I will certainly try my best.

If you’re a teacher of writers (or a writer… don’t have to be a teacher) and you’re looking for a supportive group of other writers to encourage you along your writing journey, check out Teach Write.
