Joy or Laughter?

Tears of JoyDo you prefer laughter or joy? Or are they the same thing? Or does one produce the other?

My post on Inscribe Writers Online shares a couple times of laughter in my life as I pray that God will continue to fill my heart with His joy.

It is called Humour in my Life.

InScribeFall ConferenceDo you like to tell humorous stories? Are you artistic? The Inscribe Fall Conference is coming up in September and I would love for you to join me there. This year it is in Wetaskawin, Alberta, just outside of Calgary. Check it out at the Fall Conference page of Inscribe.

As Autumn is fast approaching, remember in the change of season to plan creativity time into your life. Creativity can take any form from writing, drawing, playing an instrument, acting, painting, colouring, sewing or knitting, designing, crafting, photography, or any kind of activity that helps you create. Creativity helps you better process life, heal from the hard times in life, and develops God’s creative character in your daily life. Invest in your relationship with God and in caring for yourself by finding your creative streak.

Rhythm and Rhyme

Poetry.

Do you read poetry? Do you write poetry?

Sometimes rhythm and rhyme flow from my pen to draw a poem. Most often I do not set out to write poetry, yet some things are not able to be expressed in any other way. To write a paragraph or a page would be to say too much, to explain too much, to draw lines that box you in. A poem outlines a moment of thought and lets the reader colour in the meaning from their own experience.

My post this month on the Inscribe Writers’ Online Blog, titled “I Write, Therefore I Am” is one of those poems that came when I was trying to write something completely different. Yet this poem says it all. And this poem leaves so much unsaid. You, the reader, may expand the¬†words to provide meaning for you.

Words are my creative outlet. I believe creativity puts colour into our lives and provides a way for us to appreciate beauty. What kind of creative outlet flows from you? Music? Art? Dance? Photography? Lego?

Tell me, what is your poetry?
