"In The Midst"

10 of 31 - SOLSC 2018

The Slice of Life March Challenge is hosted by Two Writing Teachers and part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge that takes place each Tuesday throughout the year and everyday in March. It is a supportive (and awesome!) community of those trying their hand at writing and encouraging others in their writing. Join us!

"In The Midst"

Breast Feeding

blood transfusion

The promise
of Easter
in the midst
of Lent


Post Script: 
One of the things that the March Challenge does for me, and many other writers, is encourage us to look for inspiration everywhere. Today's comes from the poem, "The Children's Sermon" by Ann Weems.


  1. I searched for the poem by Weems, wanting to compare the two; thanks for the additional reading prompt. "Breast Feeding while receiving a blood transfusion" is such an intense line, brings up wondering thoughts, almost answered by the rest of the poem. Great post!

  2. Each different part of the poem were like a little mini Slices themselves, each pushing me to imagine the circumstances of the situation. After reading the inspiring poem, I can see the idea of something powerful and pure and light and strong happening in the midst of life, good or bad around you. Of taking the time to stop and take in beauty and meaning when the world swirls around you. Lovely!
