100 Word Challenge:

Word of the week is Idea


Ideas and Secrets

By Teresa Smeigh

February 2016


I have an idea

Fleeting as can be.

Better hold on tight

Or it could be set free.

My ideas are infrequent

Catch them if you can.

I rarely speak them out loud

Have to think about the Man.

Secrets are much more fun,

If kept between one or two.

Need a best friend who cares,

One who likes secrets too.

Wanna know my secret?

I don’t frequently share.

I follow the Lord’s footsteps

and I feel comfortable there.

I follow in his footsteps

and let him lead the way,

Because he knows what

needs doing that very same day.

  3. Thanks for such a positive post. I do believe, however, that your secret is not one in need of shelter. It can and should be freely shared. 🙂

      You are right! I was just trying to figure out a way to say it. I have come out on my blog and it is full of daily devotions, gratitude posts and religious songs. I have written my feelings many times. That is the other blog actually.

    I love your secret, and feel the same way. My secret is that I love knowing someone’s secrets. I am a vault. Nothing you tell be gets out.
