It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the things you enjoy doing.
I enjoy writing poetry and a more recently discovered passion of photography. Not even the photography as much as the editing and fun you can have with one single photo.
Below is an image I had fun creating to go along with a poem I found on Facebook. (Note: I contacted the author of the poem and she knows I am using it)
Captured by a Steeple
A cat, he sat upon a shelf,
Jacob was his name,
Looking at a painting
In a golden wooden frame.
I wondered what had captured
The eye of this sweet cat.
A fish, a bug, a bird in flight?
What was he looking at?
And then I saw it for myself
Tucked between the trees,
A steeple, strong and mighty
Pointing to our King.
Such a pure and peaceful sign
Even cats are mesmerized.
A steeple pointing upward
To our Savior Jesus Christ.

Could you see the cat in the image?
Although the poem I used above is not mine, I do enjoy writing poems as I mentioned. I have written and shared a number of them on my blog. I thought I would re-share one of them.
A Life is a Life
Female and male come together
A life is formed in the womb
When it’s time, born into this world
A baby’s life is brand new
Unable to care for itself
This new life needs love and care
Help from another life
And certainly the need for prayer
Without shelter life is rough
Without love they grow mean & cold
Without food they will starve
And not live long enough to grow old
These lives depending on you
None of us meant to be on our own
In a world that can be so hard
For a baby or when grown
Looking at new life
And the needs to get by
Do you think it’s just about humans
If that is what you’re thinking, why?
Do animals not need
These very same things?
Were they and we
Not both created by the king?
One has fur, the other does not
One has four legs, the other has two
It is true ALL lives matter,
So who cares if red, purple, or blue
Not all basic needs are met
Some are alone or living in fear
Some beaten, starved and ignored
Wondering if any help is near
How do they defend themselves
Against mankind what can they do?
They have no voice in this world
Except a meow, woof, & moo
The good news is there will be a time
When all of the pain will end
For you, for me
And for all of our animal friends
But there is a lot of suffering
Until that time is here
So step up, be their voice
Let them know help IS NEAR
