My passion has always been poetry. Words are my form of therapy and cost much less. I often work out details of my life by writing things out. So many times I have thrown these snippetts away and now wish I had not. Words can touch our hearts both in the written or spoken form. I will fill this place with poetry, and other heartfelt forms of the written word. You may find some mixed media Art here also. I see words as Art, Do you?

A Christian Nursery Rhyme or Three....
Happy Sunday Everyone,
As promised I am here to share a Christian Nursery Rhyme or 3 with you from one of my new favorite book finds:
The Christian Mother Goose Book
by Marjorie Ainsborough Decker.
I wish I had found this book when my girls were still young. I've really enjoyed reading it and almost singing along with the rhymes.
First, I would like to invite you over to Associated Content to read one of my very own altered nursery rhymes:
That would be a really sweet & quick bedtime prayer, don't you think?~~
One more, I'm sure you won't mind :) !
Three Kind Mice
Three kind mice,
See what they've done!
They helped a lost chick
To find Mother Hen,
They brought some food
To the church mice, then
They cleaned up the tree house
For Jenny Wren,
Three kind mice.
Aren't these such sweet variations of the beloved Mother Goose Rhymes we all know and love. Well I guess we all know, maybe not. Anyway, I will share more next Sunday.
In the meantime I have paint-overs to finish and share. And fused plastic envelopes to finish and share also. Plus hubby and I have been cleaning out flower beds and replanting today and still have more to do tomorrow. And we bought a Topsy Turvy Tomato Plant holder, and a Strawberry Plant holder too, so we'll be fixing them up later this evening. A big thank you to my brother Randy and my nephew for coming over and helping us with yard work today. We wouldn't have gotten as much done without their help.
