The Weekend (Timzauto’s 20 Lines Weekend Challenge)

The weekend now is lurking, just beyond this one last day

The week that’s just now ending, it has flown

Saturday and Sunday, they will come and go away

Whatever we bring to them, etched in stone.


As children I remember that the weekends were such fun

For grownups that is often still the case

Family time and shopping, or a movie or the beach

Frowns disappear, for smiles to replace


I’m thankful for my granddaughter to spend the weekends with

She makes the smiles more numerous, you know.

We both love church on Sunday, it’s the highlight of our week

To fellowship, and in the Lord to grow


And when it all is over and on Monday we wake up

It’s off to school, the first day of the year

Grace is now a fifth grader, it’s so hard to believe

Her eleventh birthday’s drawing near.


And once again the cycle of a new week will begin

We go to work and school and muddle through

Thankful, cause we know another weekend’s on its way

And life is what we make it…me and you.


Saturday thoughts

Rough night

Little sleep

Coughing jags


Worn out

Tried to lie back down

No rest for the weary.

So much to do

So many reasons to feel discouraged.

Too many reasons to be thankful

To waste the time being discouraged.

So, I simply rest my arms on the desk

And move my fingers over the keys

Thankful for a little poetry

On this beautiful day

Though I’d rather be outside enjoying it.

Thankful for the good day I had yesterday

And that this too will pass.

Thankful for family and friends who love me

And for a heart that may act tough…

But still has some soft spots where love always remains.

Still…a little sadness resides within this heart of mine.

Overruled by the faith that never leaves me.


Rainy Weekend

heavy clouds..unrelenting rain…
bed weather and cold winds
stifle my plans for Saturday…
crossed out picnic and lunch,
shredded the thought of taking
a stroll in the nearby park…

maybe i’ll put on my rain boots
and my raincoat..or run free and
go dance silly under the rain
like my 8-year old self
some 20 years ago…
