Text Message Interlude

I found this crazy poetry prompt to go through my last 14 text messages, choose the third line and arrange them into a poem. I was a little confused (e.g., are only my texts valid in the count? Is it 14 conversations or text messages in general? What if one message is a whole paragraph?), so I took so liberties with the prompt. [I also edited out identifying information.] However, the whole thing sounded like a fun challenge, so here we go...

Hey. Happy Sabbath!
How is your week going?
How's it been so far?
     I've been working and some customers are just stupid
     I'm reading the commentary on Facebook now
Aww... No problem, hope you're feeling better.
     Whoop Whoop!
     This was my inspiration paragraph
Hopefully I get out soon
We'll see if I'm predictable
     Oh Bubbles
Yep, I'm trying to convince them to get a dog
He has nowhere to sit
     Creepy, right?

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
