Today I am sharing a poem that I wrote earlier this month, along with a coloring page, for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club for the month of May. I thought the picture was super cute, and the colors are not spartan at all. 🙂
For Linda G. Hill’s coloring club this month, I have another picture from my Pusheen the cat coloring book, which I hadn’t colored in in a while.
Shared with the Writers’ Pantry at PSU. Inspired by one of the psalms that I read this morning. 🙂
The little bird, when it chirps,
Does it speak to its Creator?
Before it carries away crumbs,
Does it thank God for what comes?
The majestic eagle, when it flies,
One higher does it recognize?
Him who gave it talons and wings,
Deserves great praise from all things.
Day 15 of JusJoJan is themed, “button.” All I could think about was the expression “cute as a button.” My mom used to make photo albums (she still does, usually on the computer, though), and I remember seeing a page from when I was 2 or 3 years old, and I was probably 8 or 9 at the time. On the page was a cutout of a pink button with that phrase next to it.
My very literal, 8-year-old brain was perplexed by that, so I asked my mom, “Why does it say, ‘Cute as a button? Buttons aren’t cute.”
“It’s an expression,” she tried to explain.
Undeterred, I insisted, “But why?????“
I don’t remember how that situation resolved, but my mom certainly had a lot of patience with little Jenna. She may have gotten annoyed at my persistent questions (asking the questions that really matter, hahaha), but at least I was cute. 🙂
This post basically turned into an SoCS-style post, due to the fact that writing a poem about buttons proved impossible for me today. 🙂
This is for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club for the month of December. I keep forgetting to post my picture(s) so decided to do it now, especially since I didn’t write any post-worthy poems today. I colored several pictures this month, and here are two of my favorites.
This is for Linda G. Hill’s coloring club for this month. I colored it today.
There once was a cat on a cloud
Who loved to take in night’s dark shroud,
Because all the stars
And planets like Mars
Finally to shine were allowed.
I made up the limerick off the top of my head because why not. I know planets don’t shine, but in my colorful dream-world they do. 🙂
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!
