Since today is Halloween, I wanted to share some of my coloring, before the day is over. Sharing again with the coloring club. The designs in this coloring book are often bizarre and outlandish, but they never fail to make me smile! I’m not sure what (or if) I’m doing anything to celebrate today, but I hope you have a happy and spooky Halloween!
Once again, I am taking part in Linda G. Hill’s coloring club! This month so far, I have colored 3 or 4 pictures, and we are only halfway through the month. Below is my favorite picture from the past 2 weeks.
I wear my heart on my sleeve
So swift to sadden but even
Quicker to smile or grin —
From cats’ cuteness to cupcakes
Or ice cream’s scoop of delight,
I look at the stars and see
Of sweetness there’s a galaxy.
This was meant to be just for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club this month, but then I realized — shockingly — that I could also write a poem inspired by the picture. Linking to the Weekly Scribblings, where we explore “when all else fails.”
When I feel like I’m drowning,
When my lungs pound to be let out
Of their cage, I find a place
Where I can breathe underwater.
When all else appears to fail,
Find where cats with mermaid tails
Play and swim, and simply dream:
For a moment flow with the silly whim.
I had to choose between 2 pictures this month, and I continue to color more pictures, as this chapter of staying at home and social distancing is not yet finished. I hope the world is not too chaotic and that things can get back to normal (or better than “normal!”) soon.
Linked to Linda G. Hill’s coloring club. I’ve colored a few pictures this month, the one below being the most recent one (I finished it about 20 minutes ago 🙂 ). I like this one because I say the Lord’s Prayer every day, yet how many times have I said it without REALLY meaning “Thy will be done?” These last couple of weeks have been an eye-opener because my will is just obliterated, and I am forced to concede, “Okay, Your will be done.” I’m not sure how many of you are having the same kind of experience, but it’s showing me that I still have a ways to go as far as truly being a faithful disciple of Christ.
I didn’t intend to write so much, but anyway, here is my picture!
