All-powerful, Perfect

Loving, Amazing, Knowing

Sovereign Creator – Evil, Dark

Consuming, Obscuring, Infecting

Selfish, Painful


This month’s poetic license featured the poetic form, Diamante. A form which begins with a subject, and ends with it opposite, and when centered looks like a diamond. (For more specific instructions see here.) My immediate thought was God and Sin. Nothing could be more opposite. But since we have a theme and this month’s theme is emotions or the great outdoors.. you can see that I’m not exactly following the rules here. So consider that one a freebie. If you want a rule-abiding, theme-following poem, you’ll have to read this one:


Whispery Caress

Fleeting, Brushing, Skin-Kissing

Flowing Gently. Hushed. Quiet.

Stopping, Ceasing, Halting


Imagine sitting outside on your porch swing listening to the birds sing, or on a mountain side admiring the beauty of the valley below – in all this seeing the evidence of God everywhere you look, His amazing creation that bears witness to his splendor.

God is good.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
