A Penny

Shadorma poem about a penny and God's provision
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

I am in the midst of a transition right now.  I am moving to a new place, in a new area. I had to quit my job to do so, and I just bought a new car.  Moving is never fun during the sorting, packing time, besides there are always extra expenses to deal with,  so I took a break and went out to eat at my favorite restaurant.  I was going to just get the food to go so I could rush home and get back to packing while I ate, but at the last minute I changed my mind and decided to stay there and eat in.  There were several tables available to sit at, so I kind of roamed around to make my choice.  Amazingly, the table I chose to sit at had a penny laying on the very spot I chose to sit!  “Thank You God” I said. For, every time I start to worry about money it seems I happen to find a penny or dime in my path. It is really amazing!  I have found them in so many odd places that one would never expect a penny or dime to be!   I believe they are reminders to me,  from God,  that I should not be worrying about money, or anything else,  because He is in control and He is my Provider.

In the Midst of the Mist

In-the-Midst-of-the-Mist  Quatern poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2015

It always amazes me how our mind can get carried away when we can’t see things clearly or how our imaginations begin to flow when we come upon the unexpected or unexplained.  “In the Midst of the Mist”  is an imaginary story that shows us the importance of not letting ourselves get overcome by fear, or letting our emotions get out of control, by imagining things that may not be true, just because we can’t see the whole picture clearly.
