My Poem of the Day


St. Paul's Church

The Old St Paul’s©

As a child I sat in a church pew each Sunday from early morning till past noon

The seats were so tall that I could barely see past them

The organ so loud that the minister had to bellow each word he uttered

The sun beat harshly against the stained glass windows

So hard that I thought I could see each picture dancing to the organs sounds

The array of colors kept me busy while awaited my next prompt to sing

I felt like I was in the king’s palace as I sat among all the other choir members

I too bellowed just as loudly as the minister being certain that everyone would hear my words

With each word that I sang I felt like life was carrying me forward to another place in time

I almost didn’t want the music to end

But I knew my entire day wasn’t meant to be spent at the old St. Paul’s

So at a half past one along with my sister and brother hand in hand we headed home

While the adults stayed behind to attend to the vestry meeting and planned for what was ahead

I so loved my Sunday’s at Old St. Paul’s

My Poem of the Day


Confirmation Day©

Shiny patent leather shoes

White tights

White gloves

Sunday dress

Hat with a bow

Pews filled


Loved ones



Congregation members

Candidates partnered with their sponsors

Ministers and Bishops in place

The Choir

The Organist

The sun shining brightly through stain glass windows

Butterflies in tummy

While you wait in place

Words, prayers, praises and hymns

When it’s all over

The celebration begins

We are one together





Now let the journey begin
