Armored and Able

Lion sleeping

Believer be aware

Always put on your armor

Wear it daily

The lion sleeps

But he will arise again

So be on guard

Your great adversary

Is as a roaring lion

Wanting to devour

The lion slumbers

But he will again awake

So be wise

Be spirtually ready

Don’t be caught off guard

Always be vigilant

For the devil

Is as a prowling lion

Seeking to devour

Stand against him

Wearing the Armor of God

He will flee.

They stood strong,

These American women speaking with

Iron-Jaws.

Today as we celebrate International Womens Day I wanted to pay tribute to the women in America who fought for the right of women to vote. The Suffrage women, those activists who fought long and hard, sacrificing much, in order to overcome injustice and obtain equality for women to vote.  

Beginning in the 1840’s many American women rose up to fight for women’s rights and the Suffrage Movement had a number of bold women who campaigned tirelessly for the cause. Finally in 1920, an 19th Amendment was passed that allowed to women to legally vote in the USA. 

I recently watched the movie titled “Iron-Jawed Angels” which tells the true story of the courageous women who put their lives on the line to gain this victory and I would encourage every woman to watch this movie. It is an eye opener and one that will cause you to be grateful for the rights which you now enjoy because of what these women did!

Watch the Movie Trailer  Here

(The movie was made in 2004 and is available on DVD. It is entertaining but stays very true to historical fact. I believe it is a must to watch for every American woman.)

No Time for Art

Art Studio in my home

Ready and Waiting

Yet, the chair sits empty

The Art Studio

Word Lune

This year I took up learning to draw and started with a draw-a-day challenge on Instagram. I really enjoyed it and learned a lot and was getting better day by day(I thought) but I wanted a dedicated space to draw and paint where I could leave my supplies out and handy. ( I had been using my dining room table and shuffling supplies back and forth which was inconvenient. So, I was able to turn a spare bedroom into my Art Studio and I was so happy and excited! But since that time life happenings have somehow kept me away from having time to draw, hence the poem…. I do hope to get back at it soon though 😊
