TITLE: Ways to Communicate

Writing a diary used to be
What you wanted no one to see,
For instance, your little brother,
Private even from your mother.

A journal also tells events
And how one feels, to some extent.
Some think there is nothing better
Than communicating by letter.
Some like snail mailk others Email,
As ways in which to tell their tale.

And now we have another way
To express what we have to say.
Today the thing to do is blog,
Mostly as a monologue,
Though it can be interactive.
To many it is attractive.

Something that is important too,
To speak with God, what should we do?
With us, God wants relationship.
What's the best way to fellowship?
Prayer is the way to seek His face,
To know His mercy, love and grace,
To praise and worship day by day,
Listen to what He has to say.
Communication at its best,
Try it if you would be blest.

This is quite clever. I enjoyed the limerick formatting.

You started one line with the word And, in my opinion, that interrupted the flow a tad. I also may have made a new verse for the last few lines.

I think that your message was great. You did a wonderful job incorporating the topic into your verse.

I enjoyed this...God bless and keep writing...one thing: on the end, I would probably use the word "blessed" instead of blest...

I enjoyed the rythmn too. How I love that our God will listen to any form of communication, especially written. Just look at all the styles in the Bible. Good job.

This was fun to read. The pace was good at the beginning, but seemed to grow toward the end. Do not forget to proofread for spelling.
