Theme reveal #AtoZChallenge

A to Z Challenge 2023 participant badge

This year for my A to Z challenge I am revisiting my posts for 2013. My theme that year was alliteration. I had a lot of fun with silly sentences made up of words using the letter of the day.

I also had some more serious content. This is my starting point for this year’s challenge. I hope that I and my readers will learn more about Christ and Christianity from these posts.


Blogging from A to Z in April Theme Reveal

Today is the Theme Reveal Day. If you are taking part in the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge and haven’t found yourself the Theme Reveal Badge, it is here. This year for the A to Z Challenge I have taken my 2013 Challenge as a starting point for most of the posts. In 2013 I wrote posts with an alliterative theme, mostly ending with something relating to the Bible.

For the 2017 challenge I have written posts based around something or usually someone from the Bible. Sometimes it is a fictional story, for example when I have changed the narrator or added some back stories (as a writing exercise). Sometimes my post is a summary.

Some of the characters are well-known, others less so.

I hope my readers will be challenged to consider the original texts in more depth. (If only to discover what liberties I have taken with them!)



Knock, knock

Today’s Daily Prompt asks

Pick a letter, any letter. Now, write a story, poem, or post in which every line starts with that letter.

I have taken a more or less random post from my series for the Blogging from A to Z in April Challenge earlier this year.  Not all the lines began with the letter, so I have restructured a few sentences.  My original post is K is for…  Of course O is the most symmetric of letters, so I am also linking here O is for…


K-nee, k-nife, k-nob, k-nickers was the chant of a child learning to spell.  She soon knew that knitting was another word with a silent K.

Kindness among kinsfolk (one’s kith and kin) kindles affection.

Kings keep kittens in kitchens.

Kingfishers, koalas, kangaroos and laughing birds (kookaburras) are creatures.

Kilimanjaro has I, J, K, L, M, N and O and its top is covered with snow.

Kingcups are yellow and knapweed could be picked and the stem wound round itself to shoot the head off.  (Probably not allowed unless you have grown them in your own garden!)

Kettledrums are timpani and a klaxon also makes a noise.

Kick  may be free in football or start a motorbike and a kick-pleat allows a longer stride.

King Saul was the first king of Israel.  David and Solomon were the next kings.

King of the Jews was the title of Jesus when He was condemned and crucified as  Luke 23:32-43
