Blessed Chaos

Grabbing some cocoa I find a nook
A lovely window seat I sit aloof
Soon my cat joins me there
Giving me an all knowing stare
The door flings open with a gust of cold wind
Snowflakes swirls about as they filter on in
Crystal and Michael discussing the drive
She telling him they are lucky to be alive
Slow down dear husband you scare me so
The roads are all covered in ice and in snow
Young Alex races in
His face a big grin
Too late I see why
A snowball did fly!
The dog jumped to catch it
But while in transit
The cat decided to move
Getting in the dogs groove
As they race out the door
In walk more
My daughter and son
Adding to all the fun
After warm greetings exchanged
And seating arranged
The music begins
At first with a hymn
My son plays guitar
We sing as a choir
As the evening winds down
I look all around
David has a bible in his hand
Discussing with Michael God's command
The girls are having their own conversation
About a new christian music station
I look all around
I put my head down
Thank you Lord for this home and family
For all the chaos and all the harmony
For seeds that have taken fruitation
And through Your grace our salvation

Sounds like fun and I like the way you wrote this. I don't know if it should have any spaces or not (maybe just a space between each line for visual effect?)and I think the conversation could use quotes - but I really enjoyed this glimpse, and I had fun too!

A delightful glimpse into a home where mum can bow her head in humble praise that her kids love Him. Just watch out for the shift from present to past tense: A snowball did fly!/
The dog jumped to catch it/
But while in transit/
The cat decided to move.

A fun picture of a faithful family. It would flow more easily if you work on meter--having the same number of accented and unaccented syllables in each line. Rhyme scheme is very good, and lots of clever word choices here. Thanks for this lovely poem!

A wonderful picture of a family doing what families do best :)

Nice free verse. I could hear the hubbub! :)

Yes ... a million directions at once! Each going a hundred miles per hour! Sounds like home to me!
