Above

Jar with James 1:17 scripture

Treasures abound.

Many gifts are waiting

In my Father’s house.

Only good and perfect gifts

Are waiting to be found.

Tanka

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

Autumn’s Bio

Painted leaves, Autumn leaf lady
“Miss Autumn” leaf art by LeonasDesigns

I am Miss Autumn

Dressed in vibrant colors

Creating crisp brisk breezes

Inviting leaves to dance

As maple trees clap

Their red and golden appendages

Beneath cloudy skies

And furry grey squirrels scamper

To gather the oak’s treasures

Fragile

Box makes Fragile

Boxes

All shapes

And all sizes

Like people

They hold things inside

Secrets, treasures, dreams

Or maybe unwanted things like

Bitterness, unforgiveness

Handle all boxes with care because

They can be damaged inside and out

Life’s Ordinary Things

Blue Bird singing, Red Rose blooming, Watercolor by Leonas Designs

Bird song,

First rose in bloom.

Enjoying the simple things.

Feel of rain, and the warmth of sun

Blessings,

Priceless, often overlooked,

Treasures are free,

And in our lives

Abound.

Butterfly Cinquain

Find beauty and joy in the ordinary things that life brings.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.” –Eleonora Duse
