When the Past Blesses …

Sometimes I wish I could turn my blog upside down so that the very first post I wrote way back in 2013 would start a rerun of all I’ve been given. To date the records show there are 902 posts. Wow! I give God the glory. It’s been such an amazing journey, and I’ve met the most precious people along the way. Some still fragrance my life. I thought about reposting them all one at a time, as I am led; but I admit I don’t find the whole ‘block’ layout on WordPress as easy to use as the old classic version. I usually find myself in a bit of a pickle. Anyway … here is my very first post from January 2013. Short and sweet …. God bless you all, and thank you so much for your loyal and loving support through these sometimes quiet, sometimes tumultuous moments of time x

“Today we live
What we shaped yesterday
And dream for tomorrow
So may the rosebuds of yesterday
Be the blooms for today
And the fragrance of tomorrow”

Dearest friends,
As some of you may know, I am in the process of compiling all of my work into a soft cover version. I know that usually the reader writes a review after finishing the book; but I have seen quite a few where there are numerous comments in a newly published book and it does bring sweet fragrance to the product.

Anyway, I have been thinking, how lovely it would be to use some of your comments from over the years in my book. There are so many incredible words of comfort, encouragement and love which has been shared over the years, that sometimes I have to question who the recipient should be, certainly not me … all glory must be given to God.

So here goes … my question is this:-

Are there any of my dear followers who would like to share a generalized comment regarding my poetry or song lyrics? Has it helped you, inspired you, encouraged you or was it sent in perfect timing (through His hands) at that moment of need for yourself or someone you love who was hurting?

Should you wish to see your comment in print please email me at poetrycottage@gmail.com.

Some things need to be unseen don’t they and they would be a lovely surprise for my reader … positive thinking … readers :-).

Please know in advance (because I do not know the response I will receive regarding this) that I may not use all that you send me, or all of a comment (space permitting).

If you don’t want your full name used, please also let me know.

I won’t include any links as things have a habit of changing and they may not work down the track.
I’m sure you understand.

God bless you all.
You have made this blog what it is today and contributed your love and hope to those in need.
