In My Shoes

Paper collage shoes
Paper Collage “Shoes” by Leona J Atkinson 2020

While walking thru life in these shoes

I saw things I didn’t want to see

Came upon things I didn’t choose

While walking thru life in these shoes

I walked away from things I hated to lose

Stood firm when when I wanted to flee

While walking thru life in these shoes

I saw things I didn’t want to see

Triolet

Yes, many things I’ve seen and done in my 75 years, but nothing has quite been like what I am seeing and experiencing now during this virus.

I pray all our shoes will stand strong so that we will all be walking away from this time in our lives healthy and free to really live life again in a world that is free from this terrible disease.

United We Stand

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Dont give up and run for cover

When clouds of adversity hover

Stand firm and you’ll discover

There’s strength in standing still

When clouds of adversity hover

As they someday surely will

Standing on The Rock

Bird standing on rocks

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Through fortitude I’ll win

I will never give up or in

I have Christ’s power within

To help me stay strong

I will never give up or in

Though the way is hard and long

Posted in Etheree, March 2018, Reverse Etheree, Scripture

Unclad

Unworn Armor

We smiled, chittering and chattering

As daylight filled with bright sunshine

Spilled upon us walking sprightly.

In the distance a lion roared

But the sound did not reach

Our quiescent ears

Dulled by sleep.

Our guard down,

The lion

Strikes!

Caught

Off guard

We scramble

To stand and fight

The enemy attack.

Unprepared for battle,

Head and heart vulnerable

To fleshly fear and worldly anger,

We attempt to vanquish our beastly foe

Unprotected. We cry out for God to help us!

Reverse Etheree and Etheree

Based on 1Peter 5:8 and Ephesians 6:10-18
