Each day

Above us loom

Clouds of uncertainty

Attempting to blanket our hope

We sigh,

And then,

We see the sun, our smiling friend,

Appear, chasing the clouds,

Restoring hope,

And life

Morris the Cat—2004-2019

An angel left us

Silently, went to heaven

Christmas Eve morn.

Fifteen years of her friendship

Remains in our memories.

Tanka

A tribute to our family cat who passed away this last Christmas Eve morning.

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

Have You Ever?

Sailing ship on calm water

Have you ever been told “No!”

Stopped when you wanted to go

Denied passage within

Rejected for the color of your skin

Refuted for something you’ve said

Sought friendship but were scorned instead

Vetoed for taking a stand

Mocked for the goals you’ve planned

Nothing but bills in the mail

Everything you try seems to fail

You’re not alone my friend

I’ve gone round and round that bend

Someday our ships will come in

Someday it’ll be our turn to win!

Rhyme

“Never, Ever, Give Up!”

#OctPoWriMo Day 5

Prompts:

Denied, Refuted, Rejected, Spurned, Vetoed

Portrait of The Word

Names of Jesus
A Friend 

Who never leaves

A Brother who sticks close

A Savior who died for me

Jesus

The Christ

The Way, Truth, Life

Redeemer of my soul

The Wisdom and Power of God

My All

Friend of God

Scripture fulfilled 

Imputation was given

Abraham believed

Righteousness was bestowed

He was called “Friend of God”

Tanka

#NationalBestFriendsDay

And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. James 2:23
