The Virtue of Reaching Out

Thrown to the ground

In nothing but a sheet

She shivers, trembles, and shrinks

Into the hot sand

Wishing, praying, begging that

it might swallow her whole

Harsh voices raising, roaring,

Accusing, Branding, Charging

Spit and spittle splatter

Flung against her face

Rock rumble in hungry hands

Waiting, wanting, to be thrown

Then,

He is there

Extending, Offering

A Hand

 

The Seven Virtues were created to combat each of the Seven Deadly Sins. These Seven Virtues first appeared tied together in an epic poem titled Pschomachia, written by Aurelius Clemens Prudentius, a Christian governor of the 400s AD. To battle Envy, there is kindness.

Kindness is the act of showing compassion or mercy to someone who may or may not deserve it. Kindness can be shown in small or large ways. This poem was inspired by the kindness that Jesus showed the adulteress in John 7.

Happy Writing Everyone!

Tea Time – Won’t You Join Me?

You all probably know this already, but my WordPress tag is “KaylaAnn:
Write, Drink Tea, Live Life, Repeat”

For those of you who follow my Instagram page you are probably already aware that  I LOVE tea. For those of you who don’t follow my Instagram I thought I would just share a couple of my favorite tea cups/mugs with you!

Love my ceramic mug that fades from gray to white

“Cultivate Kindness!” It’s a good reminder with which to begin my day!

I don’t know why, but I adore old diner metal kettles and mugs

My Valentine’s Day mug! I really should get a mug for every holiday….

The world can be crazy at times and it can be more than I can handle. That’s when I pull out this mug. “Trust in the Lord with all your Heart.”

I probably use this mug more than I should. “I can’t adult today,” but I do it anyway 😀
