Fruitful

Apple tree bearing fruit

Abounding in fruit

Aged life forecast

Fresh and flourishing

Haiku

Based on Psalm 92:14

They shall still bear fruit in old age;

They shall be fresh and flourishing,”

Cloudy Days

Clouds

Promises

Of sunny days

Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.

Each day summer’s warmth is cut short

It seems.

Cinquain

This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.

The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.

Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.

Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.

I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!

Life Walk

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. Psalm 23 visual
Original Image— My Creative Bible

My joyful journey

Brings me beside still waters

Trusting my Shepherd

To lead through pastures of green

Peacefully I stroll

Pockets filled with promises

Walking with my King

Over mountains high and wide

And valleys deep and narrow

Choka

(Based on Psalm 23)

My Life from A to Z

Letters A and Z

Alien

Because I was without

Christ, living in

Darkness

Ensnared, a

Foreigner to Israel, without

God and without

Hope, a gentile in

Israel and to all

Jews

Knowing not the

Love of God, believing in

Myths

Not knowing the truth

Of the wonderful

Promises of God

Questioning life’s purpose

Running from truth, a

Stranger to the covenant of Promise

Then, through God’s grace

Understanding the gospel brought me to

Victory in Christ, and I was a

Wanderer no more, a

Xenos no more, I belonged and was

Yoked to Christ forever in

Zion, the New Jerusalem.

Abecedarian

(Based on Ephesians 2)

Resting in Him

Bible, coffee cup, Psalm 94:19 scripture

As my heart fills with perplexity

And threatens to overwhelm my soul

My minds fills with Your words to me

Comforting with precious

Promises so sweet

And remembrance

Of Your care

Towards

Me

Nonet

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19 KJV

Realistic Dreaming

Dreaming, girl on the moon, hot air balloons, sky

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got

Before you leave the pond and swim upstream

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its not just an empty scheme

Promising you somethings that are not

In your search for a way to live your dream

Make sure its better than what you’ve got
