Prevailing in Place

Snoopy as the Red Baron with a face mask on.
Original drawing by Leona J. Atkinson 2020

Snoopy never gave up the fight

Though the enemy came on strong

Attacking all that was good and right

Snoopy never gave up the fight

He fearlessly fought with all his might

Against the things he knew were wrong

Snoopy never gave up the fight

Though the enemy came on strong

I drew this picture for my daughter who has been a #Snoopy fan since she was a little girl.

She saw a picture yesterday of just Snoopy’s doghouse, no Snoopy on top of it as he was “Sheltering in Place”.

It made us both feel so sad, 😥 that I told her I would draw him as the Red Baron with a mask on, signifying he was staying strong and not giving up.

I Am -Self Portrait

Alphabet Art by Leona J. Atkinson

I am my mother’s face in the mirror,

As I speak her favorite quotes

To myself, that “This Too Shall Pass”.

I am dad’s voice echoing,

“Don’t Forget, Smell The Flowers”.

I am God’s Spirit,

Reflecting Him

To the world,

At this

Time.

Stay Positive

Sign “Keep Smiling and Carry On”

Times are sad

But dont dwell on on the bad

Stay calm and do your part

Keep hope alive in your heart

Don’t let fear creep in

Stay positive to win

Soon too, this will pass

Vanish as vaporous gas

We must stand strong en masse

“This Too Shall Pass”

Photo of March 15 “The Grace of Encouragement”calendar page
My calendar today inspired this poem.

Troubles

Like storm clouds

Floating into our lives

Will flow out like river water

Fear not!

(My mom lived in and survived the Great Depression. “This Too Shall Pass” was one of her favorite sayings. It is also becoming one of mine.)
