Ekphrastic writing below

How vast this world is, —
A tiny sprout shoots up!
Why am I here? It calls out!
Meager and alone; yet
God willed it to BE!

Join us!

From BEST TO WORST, as the world goes!

Take out your paintbrush, oops I mean keyboard time to create from, you guessed it, PAINT CHIPS.

 

From Best to Worst, as the world goes.
If I had a wishbone, wishing for a world filled with the wisdom of the beginning as an heirloom tomato antique in nature!
Enough! Picking politicians from the deep end! Their empty laugh, a voice covered with a greenish patina, always depicting a green with envy gaze.
They go up and down in an organized swim, a lap swim, no wonder they are all wet. Back and forth as fireflies! 

As empty ways fade
Replaced by blooms of flowers
Truth! Sweeten the air!

Ah! Another Challenge, Politics, Word Prompts

Do Beeee of Good CHARACTER

The prompt today is the word “Character.”  I love prompts because they always make me dust off my brain.  I only wish I had the time to participate in them all, but I do have a life outside this “box” of electronics.  Today I plan to clean out my shed, I better put on my mask to protect me from the dust.  LOL!

Here is my take today on the subject of Character click if you want to join.

Today the world is living with so many different characters and trying to get along is a challenge itself. — A confusion wrought by change, black is now white, right is now wrong, but what was wrong is now the new normal.

There is a conspiracy to rid the world of God. Anyone who denies this is either part of it or one with their head in the sand. How do I know this, LOOK AROUND?

In my 80 years of life, I have met many characters most with integrity, others eccentric, or cranks. Lucky me, I get along with all of them, some better than others. They all have something to give.

The world is so filled today with chaos; who are we, or mainly who am I to say who is correct or mistaken to believe in a conspiracy. I have reached to point in my life, to pray for truth, let the world go by, and hope that when it stops for me to get off, I will be ready to face God when He asks me like He will ask all of us. HOW DID YOU KEEP THE FAITH?

Prophecy, Anti-Christ, and today!

Today I will write about prophecy, Catholic prophecy.  No not flash fiction but I wish it were.

I am not a prophet and have no direct line to God.

However, I have read several prophecies concerning our day, the days of the Great Apostasy from the Church founded by Christ, as foretold in 2Thess. Chapter 2. Describing the times before the coming of Anti-Christ, with a capital “A.” Today is that time! Many know, and some don’t know, and others don’t care to know. Know about the Great Apostasy!  My experience or my serendipity moment happened over 35 years ago when I discovered the Catholic Church was not what it used to be. The Church was no longer One, Holy nor Apostolic, but an optical illusion. My neighborhood church and throughout the world slowly apostatized, now a man-founded religion that has adapted to the world a strange belief they called Vatican II.

What to do? Seek, and you shall find, I told myself, go back to what you have learned and believed from the beginning, and so I did.

****************

Back to prophecy: Here is an example of one said prediction of what will happen before Anti-Christ

“People will rise against peoples, and nations will rise against nations, sometimes allied, sometimes enemies, in their fight against the same party. Armies will come into frightful collisions and will fill the earth with murder and carnage.

As well as that. I see that the earth will be shaken in different places by frightful earthquakes. I see whole mountains cracking and splitting with a terrible din. I see come out of these gaping mountains whirlwinds of smoke, fire, sulfur, and tar, which reduce to cinders entire towns. All this and a thousand other disasters must come before the rise of the Man of Sin (AntiChrist.)  

BREAKING NEWS TODAY!

Now we can all look forward to this DUST STORM, on its way to the U.S.A.

dVerse, poetry, Politics

The year Twenty Twenty remember well

The year Twenty Twenty remember well
Many believed we were living in hell!

We stayed apart secluded day and night
Others seemed happy and began to write.

Some started composing little poems
Enjoying spending so much time at home.

Decisions were made — let us kneel and pray
While others continued longing to play!

Something new to a spoiled generation
Is this only now our planned vacation?

Sadly the parents soon became teachers
What will we do with these tiny creatures?

Politicians fret about this and that
Clung to agendas while ignoring facts.

When the danger decides to stop and quit
Will the world seek — find another conflict?

Thereby God will again say — “You’re Grounded!”

AGAIN!

What is a Triolet — Don’t Ask Me!

 

dVerse is asking for a Triolet with a rule of the meter is iambic tetrameter, that is, each line has four accented syllables with each accented syllable preceded by an unaccented syllable… (gulp! Hmmm!)

My attempt:

Very strange thing the world today
To rid itself of God
Why? — People just want to play
Indeed the world I see today
Will soon discover as they stray
Firing God not easy
A diverse world I see today
No wonder we feel queasy

OR

Very strange thing the world today

To rid itself of God

Why? — People just want to play

Indeed the world I see today

Will soon discover as they stray

Firing God! Oh how odd

A diverse world I see today

To rid itself of God

How to be Happy, Healthy and Holy

Life, what is our purpose of being here? In today’s world, unfortunately, it means doing whatever we want.

If we are honest with ourselves and examine our conscience, we will admit the above idea does not bring us happiness, only unhappiness.
We are merely as the saying goes, “Barking up the wrong tree” or not looking in the right direction for peace of soul and happiness.
Humanity, for all times, is given Ten Commandments to follow: the influence of this world say they are only suggestions.

How is putting the Ten Commandments on the back burner working out for you? Do you know the

                                                                         OR

“Not doing well today, “Take a pill.” There are pills today for everything under the sun. Medicines to help your state of mind, pills to keep you awake or fall asleep. Some tablets help you lose weight, or cope as struggling through the day Etc. Etc.  Indeed!  Medicines are gifts of God, not to be abused or replaced with truth.  Ask and you shall find!  Remember in the end God gives us our desires as we lived them.

Could it POSSIBLY be that WE are BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE?  Realizing I have been there done that!

This Quote to that Quote!

INSPIRATION FROM THE Sunday Writing Prompt — 

Accepting their challenge from this quote from Atticus;  –> “We just want the world to love the little monster that we are.”  Atticus a pseudonym for an anonymous poet, writer, and artist.

The prompt reminds me of another quote from the Bible:  The above quote from Attius to this quote below is my post today, Sunday, December 22, 2019.

Adulterers, know you not that the friendship of this world is the enemy of God?  Whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of this world, becometh an enemy of God.

James 4:4
