I would guess many bloggers, like myself process by writing. I may mull over an issue for hours, days, or more depending on what I’m pondering. Then I journal to get it out and sort my thoughts. Recently, I did my processing by writing a free-verse poem. It started with two words that kept bouncing around in my mind. The two words are the title of my poem.
Winter’s brown grasses begin to morph
with sun-kissed hues of green
budding trees are stretching toward bright rays,
they give invitation to stroll in the warmth of spring.
Pure joy—as darkness gives way to lengthening light
Breathless children laugh and play as dormancy ends.
Their sun-kissed cheeks blush in fun.
Glistening lake water swells in the breeze
each rising peak graces a kiss of sun.
My sun-kissed forehead marks the passage of time.
The report may be good news or bad
yet trust need not waver
I’m loved just the same.
The Son’s kiss of Life still remains.

In conjunction with writing, on happy occasions, I praise God, sing spontaneously, or do a private happy dance. During troubling times, I search the word of God to keep my faith anchored and I lean into Jehovah through prayer to find comfort, hope, and peace.
Dear Reader, how do you process life? Whether it be happy circumstances or something troubling, big or small, what do you do? Others may be inspired or encouraged by your sharing.
Dear Jehovah, you are good. Your mercy endures forever. You are the God of gods and your love never fails. You made the light of the sun that rules each day. And you gave your Son to demonstrate perfect love. Hallelujah!
