“Be Silly” Art Card created by @LeonasDesigns

Sometimes

You need to be silly

Featherbrained

Harebrained

Just a little bit childish

It’s just simply fun

Shadorma

If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good” —Dr. Seuss

This New Year I created a daily Art Challenge in my Instagram account. Each day of the week has a different prompt.

Saturday’s prompt is “Silly Saturday”.

Gee, I was surprised that I had such a hard time being creatively silly! I guess I am always so focused on making meaningful art and poetry that I find it hard to just create something non-sensical. However, I kept trying and did come up with something.

It helped to read some Dr. Seuss and Alice in Wonderland 😊

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

New Year—No Fear

Moses and Red Sea

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Don’t look back, look at Me

Stand still and you will see

Deliverence! Free you’ll be

From that chronic pursuing hoard

Stand still and you will see

The salvation of the Lord

Triolet

And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. Exodus 14:13

New Year Treasure

8 Point Star table top

The New Year brings Life,

New Beginnings and Promises of Restoration and Redemption,

A Baptism in Hope, Wisdom, and Guidance for those willing to seek Him

Cherita

A couple of days ago I was blessed to find a most unique dining room table at a local thrift store.

I was in need of a new dining table and had been searching for a long time for a small dark wood table.

I was about to give up hope as every table was either the wrong size or color, therefore I decided I would just buy a table cloth for my old light colored one and look for some dark colored chairs instead.

So on a recent visit to another thrift store I found some dark colored wood chairs that I figured would be ok. They weren’t the best but they were very low priced and sturdy. I figured I could clean them up a bit and they would do me just fine with the new tablecloth.

However, while walking toward the cashier to purchase them I happened to pass by a very unique small round dark colored wood table that I hadn’t previously seen. It had an inlaid wood top with an eight point star in the middle and scallops around the edges. The legs were decorative metal in a scroll type pattern. It was such a beautiful table! Just the right size and color and perfect for me! It was priced very low too! I had found my table at last, and even better it had meaning for me, because the eight point star has many meanings in history and culture, some I found were: Redemption, Regeneration, Baptism, Life, Hope, New Beginnings, Guidance and Wisdom.

It has also been called “The Star of Melchizedek” and is the traditional pattern for winter clothing in Norway and my dad was Norwegian.

I feel this table is a blessing and though it needs a bit of refinishing , it is definitely a rare find and treasure to me!
