About the Book

Our Lives in Verse, Everyday Poetry is a whimsical, observational contemplation about our common life. Poems are nestled into three basic sections, “Months of the Year; Home and Family; and Everyday Musings.” There is a poem for each calendar month and for the celebration of Christmas. Poetry also includes thoughts about community, family, and regions of the country. The hard work of the farmer is appreciated. Curious considerations about the serendipitous nature of life, our duties, and genealogy capture the imagination. There is even a poem to elucidate a life truth called “The Pollyanna Principle.” Throughout, faith is a foundational presence. Prayers of invocation accompany some of the poetry. Our Lives in Verse presents thirty-five thoughtful, humorous, and joy filled poems that dovetail with the command in Philippians 4:8 to think about those things that are lovely, wholesome, and true to life.
