God Is Around Us and Within Us All Image by Nicola Jenkins & Poem by Paulette Motzko


Here is a beautiful photo created by my good friend Nicola Jenkins. She sent it to me yesterday and I told her I would share it on one of my web sites….and lo and behold, here it is.

I am not sure how she created it or what camera took it and how she got the beautiful effect she did…this inquiring mind is asking and will let you know when I know.

When I saw her photo I wrote:

God is in the mountains and the sea
He is in the clouds and planets and those who are kind to me
God is in the sun and dazzling stars that shine
He nourishes the flowers and performs countless miracles-

God sings with every newborn who looks at his mother’s face
And prays all the lonlely kids in foster homes belong to a family and are blessed with love and grace.

God watches over the disabled and sends special angels to guide: Seeing eye dogs are some of those and hopes each will one day have a home.

God smiles when we give and do and act in ways that help the world.
It is as though we grabbed a bit of ourselves and offered it hands unfurled.

  1. I am so touched that you liked your picture Polly…the words you have put with it are lovely and so kind of you to take the time to do that. Very appropriate too. It may look like land in front of the mountains BUT is actually the sea! I could never of come up with the poem…credit to you on that. Anytime you have anything you might like edited my friend…just holla…it will be a pleasure.

    • I am glad you loved the poem I wrote and our first collaboration. I thought we could create a Chapbook, which as a new Iternationally Famous Writer friend told me is:
      An small anthology of poetry of about 30 to 50 pages.
      I believe his name is JNana Hansen…will check.
      I can see photo montage or poetry anthology written all over your beautiful photos. Do you like my idea?
      Do you also write?
      How did you create the photo? Is it 100% digital art or is it an enhanced photograph?
      I also shared it with my readers on PhotosThatInspireWords and the 780 followers on TotallyInspiredPC.wordpress.com like it too.

      How many websites/blogs do you have?
      I will include them when I give you credits.

        • I found another email in the wee hours this morning. Thanks. I will respond in more depth to it later on.
          I have a doctor’s apt today at one pm and I take the bus, so i have to add an hour and a half to it.

  2. Reblogged this on Writer's Work Lab and commented:

    My first collaboration between my writer, blogger, photographer friend Nicola (otherwise known as BloggingGirl) and moi- Paulette Le Pore Motzko.
    I hope all the writers on Writer’s Work Lab also take a look at Totally Inspired Mind: Where Positive Minds Congregate. Readership keeps growing daily by nearly 20 followers and it has over 780 now. In a month’s time 50 to nearly 90 countries read it. It did better than both my two cooking sites, or this or PhotosThatInspireWords.wordpress.com put together in one year. I am very pleased and happy the world is too.
