When My Heart Sings
Poetry & Prayer
by Joann Salerno Nelander
About the Book
My poetry begins and ends with prayer. Jesus, His redeeming Death on the Cross, and trust in God’s desire to draw us ever closer to Him in Holy Love, is the music that makes my heart sing. I turn a listening ear to the rhapsody that plays throughout the Universe and Time to catch the notes that sound in the present moment. All creation sings God’s song.
I am a wife, a mother, a graduate of the Mount Sinai Hospital School of Nursing in NYC. I am an artist, a photographer (Photo-Jo/smugmug ), a writer, blogger (lionessblog.com) and poet. I am a Roman Catholic, grateful for the blessing of faith and in awe of God's creation. The daily bread of the Eucharist keep me fed and focused, aware of God’s presence. My writing is my outreach,small and dependent on God to make the difference.
