Like a Lamb

Three crosses on a hill

Legions of angels

Stood aimed, battle ready

To strike at command

As the Son of God

Stood in the dark garden and

Faced His accusers

His disciples ran

His betrayer kissed His cheek

Yet He was silent

Triple Haiku

He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He opened not His mouth;

He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,

And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,

So He opened not His mouth.

Isaiah 53:7

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.

More Than A Conqueror

Victory Wreath

Come follow me, I’ll never leave you

I’ll show you all the things you must do

To win life’s battles against your foe

And gain victory no matter where you go

You’ll be more than a conqueror, it tis true

Your enemies will always pursue

But them you’ll always mightily subdue

Together them we’ll overthrow

Come follow me

You’ll never be alone, for it’ll be us two

I’ll lead and guide and bring you through

In every challenge you’ll conquer and grow

Power and victory you’ll always bestow

Everyday I’ll give you victories anew!

Come follow me

Rondeau

Based on Romans 8:37-38 and John 12:26

Flag Day

Our Flag

 

Today we honor our red,white and blue.
The Flag that over many battles flew.
The Flag that stands for what we hold true.
Take time today it’s beauty to view,
And contemplate what it means to you.
