Lifelines Needed

Ducks floating in the bay at Bandon, OR. 2019

In this ol’

Life at times

We find we’re

Just able

To stay afloat

And tread water

Not moving

Not going

Just keeping

Our heads up

Until someone

Helps us out

By throwing

Us out a

Lifeline

Syllablic Verse

Be that someone-throw out a lifeline to somebody in need.

A Seen Scene

Starry Night

Delights the eye

Was it real

Or just seen

By Van Gogh’s

Artist mind

Syllabic Verse

I have always admired “The Starry Sky” painting by Van Gogh and the interesting history behind it.

Therefore, when I was given the opportunity to try to paint it as a gift for my grand-daughter, I jumped at the chance,however as a beginner in art, and a newby with acrylics, I was challenged indeed!

However, as Van Gogh said: “If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced. So I gave it a try!

The result was of course no where near as beautiful as Van Gogh’s but I had fun trying and my grand-daughter loved it!

The King of Glory

King of Hearts altered playing card
Original ATC by Leona J. Atkinson

When the King comes,

In His glory.

Will the earth rejoice?

Syllabic Verse

This morning as I was creating some Christmas Artist Trading Cards for an upcoming group swap I decided to use one of the playing cards I had on hand for a background. The card I happened to choose was the King of Hearts. Immediately the chorus from the hymn “The King of Glory” popped into my head. This had to be sent by God as I have not heard nor sung this song for years.

Attitude of Gratitude

Fall leaves on November calendar

Like falling leaves

Blessings coming down

From Father of Lights

With whom there’s no end

Too many to count

So I just say “Thank You”

Syllabic Verse

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

James 1:17 KJV
