Tis true

Life is made of choices

So think before acting

For what we choose determines

Our fate

Stepping

Forward covered,

Wearing the shield of faith.

Walking towards eternity,

In Him.

Judge Not—There’s A Time for Everything

The excited butterfly

Shouted at his friend below:

“Fly! Reach for the sky!”

“My time has not yet come”

Said the waiting caterpillar.

Tanka

In its own appointed time, eventually every caterpillar will fly, for it will transform into either a butterfly or a moth.

Perhaps that is the same timing for some people, therefore we should not judge.

To everything there is a season,

A time for every purpose under heaven:…

Eccl. 3:1

“Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

When my flesh groans instead

“Abide in Me” He said

“Wait on Me, do not dread,

Endure pruning’s pain”

Abide in Me” He said

And I try to Remain

Triolet

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. John 15:4

Sometimes

You need to be silly

Featherbrained

Harebrained

Just a little bit childish

It’s just simply fun

If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good” —Dr. Seuss

This New Year I created a daily Art Challenge in my Instagram account. Each day of the week has a different prompt.

Saturday’s prompt is “Silly Saturday”.

Gee, I was surprised that I had such a hard time being creatively silly! I guess I am always so focused on making meaningful art and poetry that I find it hard to just create something non-sensical. However, I kept trying and did come up with something.

It helped to read some Dr. Seuss and Alice in Wonderland 😊
