Choices

Crack in sidewalk that looks like a Y or two paths

Two paths lay before me

Where will they lead my feet

If I go left where will I be

Two paths lay before me

If I go right what will I see

I wonder if in the end both will meet

Two paths lay before me

Where will they lead my feet

Forewarning

Bible

Behold, I am coming soon

I hope I find you ready

Might be morning, night or noon

Behold, I am coming soon

Might be at a time inopportune

I hope I find your faith steady

Behold, I am coming soon

I hope I find you ready

Triolet

Behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of prophecy in this book.” —Jesus (Revelation 22:7 )

Sunshine and Flowers

White Daffodils in the sunshine

Ah, Sunshine and flowers

Are most wondrous things

Among which I can sit for hours

Ah, Sunshine and flowers

Watered by springtime showers

Sweetest sererinty brings

Ah, Sunshine and flowers

Are most wondrous things

Prevailing in Place

Snoopy as the Red Baron with a face mask on.
Original drawing by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Snoopy never gave up the fight

Though the enemy came on strong

Attacking all that was good and right

Snoopy never gave up the fight

He fearlessly fought with all his might

Against the things he knew were wrong

Snoopy never gave up the fight

Though the enemy came on strong

Triolet

I drew this picture for my daughter who has been a #Snoopy fan since she was a little girl.

She saw a picture yesterday of just Snoopy’s doghouse, no Snoopy on top of it as he was “Sheltering in Place”.

It made us both feel so sad, 😥 that I told her I would draw him as the Red Baron with a mask on, signifying he was staying strong and not giving up.

In My Shoes

Paper collage shoes
Paper Collage “Shoes” by Leona J Atkinson 2020

While walking thru life in these shoes

I saw things I didn’t want to see

Came upon things I didn’t choose

While walking thru life in these shoes

I walked away from things I hated to lose

Stood firm when when I wanted to flee

While walking thru life in these shoes

I saw things I didn’t want to see

Triolet

Yes, many things I’ve seen and done in my 75 years, but nothing has quite been like what I am seeing and experiencing now during this virus.

I pray all our shoes will stand strong so that we will all be walking away from this time in our lives healthy and free to really live life again in a world that is free from this terrible disease.

United We Stand

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Dont give up and run for cover

When clouds of adversity hover

Stand firm and you’ll discover

There’s strength in standing still

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

March’s Marquee

Yellow and White Crocus blooming

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

As I walk the dreary way

Coming soon” the signs say

Birds sing of a brighter day

Spring color will soon be here

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

IAM-God of the Present

IAM, Yahweh, ABBA, art card

I am right here

I am in your now

I am very near

I am right here

My word is clear

I keep my vow

I am right here

I am in your now

Triolet

God says His name is I AM

He is God of the present, the now.

He says:

“When you live in the past with its mistakes and regrets, it is hard for you because I am not there.

My Name is not: I WAS.”

“When you live in the future with its unknowns and fears, it is hard for you because I am not there.

My Name is not: I WILL BE.”

“But when you live in this moment, it is not hard, because I am here. My Name is: I AM.”

Faces

Sketches of faces
Face sketches by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Faces are all around me

Young, old, dark, light,

As far as I can see

Faces are all around me

Some sad, some friendly

Some mad, some drawn tight

Faces are all around me

Young, old, dark, light,

Triolet

There are so many faces we see daily. Sometimes I don’t take the time to look at every face but other times I make a point to focus on each face I see. I guess that’s called “People Watching” and it can be very interesting.

Abiding

“Abide” Art Card created by @LeonasDesigns

“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
