Some Thoughts on This Last Day of November 2019

November 2019 calendar with fall leaves on it

Consider…

You can’t go back

And erase the past

You can go forward to create a

future

Next month I have chosen to do a challenge called “Dressember.”

For this challenge I have committed to wear a dress everyday for the month of December in order to raise awareness (and funds) in the campaign against human trafficking and modern slavery.

So some of my poetry next month may reflect on this as I journey thru each day of the challenge.

I will be making daily posts on my personal blog about my journey regarding this challenge as well as posting pics and info about Dressember and the fight against human trafficking and abuse.

If any of you would like to follow me on this journey I invite you to subscribe to my other blog at: Blog | Leona J. Atkinson | Inspirational Writer/Artist

Tarry Time

Leaves in Fall

New Year days in flight,

Flying away like fall leaves.

What is your vision?

Are your dreams anchored down,

To withstand the winds of time?

Tanka

And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry Habakkuk 2:2-3

Your Vestige

Fall Leaves

Time and life will take their toll.

They will leave a lasting imprint.

What is to be your end goal?

Time and life will take their toll.

The body dies but not the soul.

Consider this as you do your stint.

Time and life will take their toll,

They will leave a lasting imprint.

Security

Fall in the Forest Looking for a place to run and hide.

Health problems falling like Fall leaves

Upon my foundation of faith.

Above me threatening

Fears loom like dark clouds,

And Doubts circle around,

Causing a chill,

Til I hear

My Lord

Speak.

Reverse Etheree

He says in Psalm 32:7 that: 

  • He is my Hiding Place.
  • He will protect me from trouble
  • He will surround me and shout for my deliverance
