Lingers long, loving life, liking leisure,

Evades every evil equally

Opts out of oral offenses

Needs niceness, no negativity

Adventurous, amicable, appreciative

NaPoWriMo Day 23 Prompt: write a poem about a particular letter of the alphabet

For today’s prompt I kind of adjusted it a bit and chose to use more than one letter so to fit into an Acrostic form and used my own name to fit my characteristics (as I see them to be) describing the words of each letter.

And….since I have an artistic side I was led to create the poem into a personalized alphabet art acrostic name wall hanging using some of my various original alphabet art images.

Purpose

Exodus 9:16 scripture

Raised up for what?

To show His power in you!

Declare His name

Everywhere you travel

That’s His purpose for you

Tanka

Based on Exodus 9:16 scripture where the Lord was speaking to Moses regarding His purpose in dealing with Pharaoh. Just as the Lord raised up Moses for that purpose, so has He done the same for all of us who believe.

We all have a purpose. He created each of us to fulfill His plan. Wherever we are today we can show forth His power as we declare His name. It’s not about us, it’s about Him.

Name Above All Names

Jesus written in concrete on a sidewalk in the city

Yesterday

On a busy street

Set in stone

I saw You

A reminder for all time

That You’re with me

Shadorma

Yesterday as I was walking down a busy city street I looked down and saw the name Jesus had been written in one of the concrete blocks that made up the city sidewalk. That inspired me to stop and give thanks that He is with me wherever I go and that He can also be found anywhere, by anyone, at anytime

Creation reveals the Creator

Vic_Viv_LincolnCity_073113I gaze upon the ocean with her mighty roar,
while above me the eagle does soar. 

A crab, which is a work of Your
Own Hands,
is displayed for me upon the sands, 

as I walk and think and pray,
I give You thanks for every day. 

Thanks for the sun that shines and the moon’s fair light, 
the trees that shade and the stars at night. 
You made it all and called it good,
in six short days, as only You could. 

As I look around me and bless Your name,
I must remember Your greatest acclaim, 

the image of Yourself, created in others and me, 
people, reflecting Your beauty for all to see.
