Alone Time

 


Hey Guys,
Was going to write a poem for this, but decided to just use my talking voice; instead. Some people get lonely and miserable when they spend time to themselves; especially if single. It's easy to get lonely and depressed by yourself when you have nothing to do. Seems one focuses more on loneliness if one is just sitting around doing nothing or just watching T.V. by one's self. Staying busy on a project or interest allows one not to think or feel so much about being by one's self nor in being lonely. Writing poetry and learning how to publish in paperback and eBook has really helped me a great deal in this area.  But, one can easily get bored with your alone time adventure. I can probably kick out a poem in just about any topic I feel I can relate to; however, my adventure in that area in the help it has supplied me is slowing down. Not that I want occasionally write a poem and post here, just that I need and want another adventure to fill my alone time. Although I do read and study my Bible and can never completely understand it's content, and although I am gaining in my relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ and know without a doubt how important and necessary that is for me; seems, life has taken on a new light in adventure in my time alone. Of course I will, without fail, continue to read and study the Bible and spend silent time with our Lord in gaining a closer relationship with our Lord as that is extremely important to me. And know that He will and has helped me with the loneliness I feel at times. Knowing God will provide my external and internal needs is the faith I have.  But just sitting around waiting on something to happen that I've been waiting on for a very long time gets me antsy sometimes; so, I have to be doing something. Am still working on my next book project that I will announce soon; however I prioritize that project as a mission to complete in due time. In the meantime, to keep from getting bored I needed more to do.  I don't really give up on adventures, as much as I get bored with them. But, I believe, through a very weird channel, I found something that peaks my interest. It will be years, a great deal of learning and some trail and error hands on experience before I will get bored with this; if ever. It will be a challenge as it being something I know very little about; but, I like a challenge and are looking forward to the adventure it will provide. Prefer not to say what it is. I just know that in addition to my life long journey with the Lord, this adventure will take me to a place of comfort in knowing I'm not just sitting around doing nothing; Idly being lonely and depressed. That I am being productive with my alone time doing and learning something that may in the long run benefit me and my children when I go home to the Lord. 

Point is: Rather than being lonely and bored (Believe it or not, these are two different emotions), one can create and/or find an alone-time adventure in doing something of interest and productivity; of course, one that is morally and legally right. Then maybe one would not think or have time to concentrate on one's loneliness and/or depression. Why waste time sitting around and worrying about being alone, causing yourself more depression that loneliness can sometime bring? And, why be bored?

And remember:

A Poem of Thought for Thanksgiving

 

Thankful for Your Friendship

You were there when my life did slip
Your love and care lifted me up with grace
I'm saying, I'm thankful for Your friendship

Now to life I'm able to get a grip
Troubles in life I'm now able to face
Because You were there when my life did slip

You helped me in life to be equip
In learning to love life in this place
I'm saying, I'm thankful for Your friendship

Sometimes to life I'm a bit confused
When hurt in giving no bad intentions
But You taught me to laugh at this amused

You eased in life my mental tension
Giving your support, amazed greatly
Helping me with Your Devine intervention

Now my worries are thoughts sedately
Because your were there when my life did slip
More of a friend now, than anyone else lately
I'm saying, I'm thankful for Your friendship

Thoughts: Very thankful, this Thanksgiving,  for many things in life; especially for life itself. Thankful to God for giving me life, and Thankful to Jesus Christ for saving my life. Also, very Thankful for family and friends that put up with me in standing by my side, through thick and thin, this past year. Thank you all for Your Friendship!

A Poem of Thought

 You I Can Count On


When my hope slips away and is gone
Looking to others is not my solution
I know You Lord I can count on

I pray, lay down as I await for dawn
Knowing You will bring a resolution
When my hope slips away and is gone

In my thoughts hope then becomes redrawn
As You give to my pain retribution
For I know Lord You I can count on

Although sad due where the pain did come
I know with You my heart is protected
As You give me strength to overcome

Giving to others my heart was infected
Then You showed me to You I belong
As You saw what others rejected

My place with You is then made strong
When my hope slips away and is gone
For I knew my hope in You was never wrong
As I know Lord You I can count on
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: Loosing hope in this mixed up world we now live is almost inevitable; especially when we place our hope in others, rather than in the Lord. The Lord sees our hearts and our potential when others just can't see that deep into our souls. He never rejects our being as others may. Our hope as Christians should always be in the Lord, knowing in Him we can count on!

Simple as Me

 Hey guys, 

Been told my site is simple and/or dated. 🤔 I could change it to be more up to date and/ or a fancy site as I do know how; but, I want due others opinions nor due society’s view of how blog sites look today. 😕 I’m not one to go along with the crowd, so to say. ☺️ My new site will be just as basic as this one, only a slightly different header as name changing and possibly different background; but, will still have same content. 😊 






Poem for thought

Redirected Focus

Sometimes life causes one to be unfocus
Making one head in the wrong direction
The Lord can give redirected focus

Looking on Him in life one can refocus
Giving one a focused connection
As sometimes life causes one to be unfocus

With Him life is placed on autofocus
No worries of life's concerning rejection
As the Lord gives redirected focus

When life sometimes greatly alters one's path
The Lord is needed to guide one through
Steering one clear of unnecessary wrath

Focusing on Him one's path He knew
As in giving one a more stable life
In trusting in Him one path is true

In life one's path sometimes brings strife
As sometimes life causes one to be unfocus
But, eyes on Jesus one knows of afterlife
As the Lord gives one redirected focus
      ©Doris Elaine

Thoughts: So many distraction in the world that it is easy to loose focus in direction; especially when one forgets that life here is not the end game. I know I get greatly distracted with things I have no busy dabbling in and/or worrying too much about a certain concerning area in my life. It is necessary sometimes to evaluate one's path in staying focused on the end game; the afterlife. As Paul so valiantly stated "I fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have keep the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but to all who have loved His appearing." (2 Timothy 4:7-8. NKJV). By staying focused on Jesus Christ one's direction is made more clear and one's path becomes focused on spending eternity with Him and not so focused on one's problems in this world. Eyes on Jesus Christ does help give one a more redirected focus when sometimes life causes one to be unfocus.

Site change announcement!

 Hey guys,

Just dropping a heads up. My site has morphed a few times and will one last time, I hope. Was in the beginning "Why Not Rhymes" in promoting rhyming poetry, then due to two objectives (Rhyming Poetry and Christian Living Poetry) I added a second site"Redemptive Rhymes" in promoting Christian poetry. Then combined those with the current "Why Not Redemptive Rhymes" when I had finished my Rhyme It Out! project . Although promoting rhyming poetry is still important to me, especially since that is mostly what I write, I think that is known now and the "Why Not" is no longer needed; more so now, is "Why" Christian poetry. Well, I'm sure it's obvious that I'm a Christian, but, the "Why" will always be a mysterious question for some; thus, my new and -hopefully-final web address will be simply "Why Redemptive Rhymes". Will be in affect by the end of November, 2021 Mean time, if you type in whynotrhymes, it's good until Jan. 28, 2022, redemptiverhymes until Aug. 26, 2022, and whynotremptiverhymes until Spt. 10, 2022 as will still bring you to my current site until those dates. Will announce again when I actually have the New address www.whyredemptiverhymes.com up and running.

Blessings All!

Also will announce new book project by the end of this year, 2021!
