When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Writer's Workshop - My Friend

It is time for my weekly writing workshop with Mama Kat.  Hope to see you there!

Writing Prompts:

Choose a writing prompt from the list provided that inspires you most.
Go over to Mama Kat's and paste the URL from your post into the list of links that will be displayed…this way anyone can click on your post thumbnail and head over to your place to see what you wrote.

Writing Prompts:

1.) The SITS Girls are giving away a Canon Rebel Camera and are asking people to enter by writing a post following these directions and answer this prompt: Spending time with friends and family can lead to fun and memorable moments, but also some very messy ones. Tell us about the messiest moments that you’ll always remember! Let’s hear yours!
2.) One good reason why you are not in charge of your family’s finances.
3.) Write about your favorite place to eat when you were a child.
4.) Write a poem where the last two words are ‘my friend’.
5.) Fall in your neighborhood! Share some Fall pictures that capture the season in your neck of the woods.

I chose number 4)  Write a poem where the last to words are "my friend".

My Friend
by Patricia A Pitterle

Sometimes, I feel so lonely
On this journey we call life.
The road is rough
And full of ruts
And toil and pain and strife.

It’s hard to keep my focus,
When tears fall from my eyes.
I hear whispers
That I’m all alone,
My heart within me cries.

Sometimes the voice would have me think
I am not worth His fight.
Not good enough
To feel His love.
Please hide me from His sight.

And though I seem to listen
And fear those words are true.
A part of me
Holds fast to faith
That He will guide me through.

Slowly, my eyes are opened,
I come to see His grace.
He walks with me
He talks with me
He leads me through this place.

In ways I don’t yet understand
He took my sins from me
And suffered that
I might now know,
He lived and died for me.

And safe at last, in His embrace
My heart will finally mend
As I gaze into
His loving face,
My Savior and my friend.


  1. This flows so perfectly....almost as though inspired from above!
