Focus Is the Key

I’ve long held the opinion that the key to peace is to not want anything—to be content—but I’m thinking that theory doesn’t apply to spiritual things, because we should desire peace, and all good things God has for us. We must focus on God and His goodness, praising Him and thanking Him for them. When we set our sights on what is true, honest, and just, there we will find God, and when our desire is to gain the pure, and lovely things of God, He will deliver them to us, and in them we will find peace.

His peace

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8

The prompt was Poetics: On The Other Hand, and, well, here’s how it turned out: Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve written many stories and poems about my grandpa, “Bunk” Stringer (we called him Pa), and I’ll surely write many more. The following poem is based on a story I wrote about him several years ago. Read the rest of this entry »
