“Get used

To different”

As we follow Jesus

In a world of conformity

We see

How to

Be different

Our old ways will leave us

As we begin to walk new paths

With Him

Double Cinquain

If you have watched the new movie “The Chosen” you will be familiar with the phrase “Get Used To Different”.

If not, I invite you to watch it

Neath the Masks

Face masks

This new normal is

Filled with masks and 6 foot marks.

A world so surreal

Senryu

Since this Sheltering in Place took effect I have only been going out to the stores one day a week to get my groceries and necessary supplies.

Each week I see more and more changes taking affect. More control, more limiting, more distancing and this week, today it was more masks.

It seemed everyone was wearing masks today, where in previous week just a few were doing so.

It just seemed so surreal seeing everyone all around me in masks.

You Matter

Hand painted rock says “You Matter”
Hand painted rock by Leona J. Atkinson

Perhaps to the world

You have been deemed

As “Non-Essential”

But in God’s eyes we

Are all “Essential”

We ALL Matter to Him

Syllabic Verse

Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will.

But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.

Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.

Matthew 10: 29-31 NKJV

World’s Spinning Wheel

Spinning Ferris Wheel

What I’m hearing so unreal!

Things happening so surreal!

So to God I appeal,

Ask Him To reveal,

Just how I should deal,

With this strange ordeal,

And still try to be genteel.

He said “ Don’t let it your faith steal,

Nor let fear loudly peal.

My word is true and real,

And My hand can surely heal.

So don’t live by how things feel

For to Me all things must kneel.“

Everyone Has Their Days

Painting of Sunrise, Never Give Up text

Physically on earth

We will lose sometimes.

Yet, Spiritually,

We who are in Christ are winners,

For In Him is victory.

Tanka

Today, on earth, the groundhog didn’t see his shadow so Spring won and Winter lost.

Today on earth, at the Super Bowl, the KC Chiefs won and the San Francisco 49ers lost.

Today, somewhere on earth, someone in the world received Christ as their Lord and Savior and the devil lost.

But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ 1Corinthians 15:57

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. 1John 5:4

Just One Word

Blackboard, open journal, flowers, message Write! It all begins with one word

Today I wrote a word

Just one short word

It sat there awhile

All alone it sat

Until inspiration

Caused it to grow

And multiply itself

Creating a story

Of three thousand words

The power of pen

And inspiration

Can change the world

Syllabic Verse
