Feeling Feminine Challenge Day 2 and an Easter Poem

(Plus some extra pictures)

Balloons from the Fiesta last year




I'm so sorry I was sort of quick
yesterday and didn't offer much
explanation for my outfit. We
were getting ready to go to my
Grandma and Grandpa's for
dinner so I was in a hurry. :)




I'm wearing a sweater that I've had
for a long time! Not sure were I got
 it but it was probably given to me.
The skirt was one Mykaela had in
her closet that Mom had gotten at
Savers for her. Mykaela wasn't wearing it because it was to big on her,
and so I tried it on and it fit just fine! Maybe Kayla will get it when I'm
done with it...

I don't know
If anyone's
interested,
but here is a
picture of my
shoes. :)









I put my hair in a tucked pony tail.




Mykaela got the shirt from me
(One I got at Savers several
years ago) and the skirt was
either given to her our found at
Savers.













She decided to
go with a pony tail.















Keturah is
wearing a "Savers
skirt" and she got
the shirt from Kayla,
and the poncho
was given to her.
(Also in the picture
is Chiquita)












I put Keturah's hair
 in a ponytail with
a scrunchy that
she picked out.

















She loves her little "baby"!

...And the chickens!







Couldn't resist putting

 these sweet pictures of Copper on. (Are you tired of the pups yet) :)

This is the remains of the turkey that Mom was preparing for dinner. I think Copper is feeling a little jealous...

OK, here is the poem I said I would post. As I think I've mentioned before, I'm still working on getting the meter right and I know it's not technically correct but I tried, so bear with me! :)

The Choice







Darkness now settles-


Faces awry


Three supposed criminals


Hanging to die.






Say’s one to the man


Who’s in greatest pain


“If you are who you say-


Call your Fathers name.”






Instead of demanding


Justice be brought


No relief was asked


And no comfort sought.






Grace is the huge gift


That freely was laid


Broken-down sinners


Through a guilt free man-saved .






“For you” said the other


Hanging beside


“This man has suffered,


And he soon will have died








I trust you Lord


And all that you say.”


Christ said “You shall dwell


In my Kingdom this day.”






The whole earth now shakes


The end very near


Sadness on some faces


Others look in fear






The cry: “It is finished”


Falls on many ears


Different faces


Stream down with tears




The torn head of Christ


Now drops down low


His breathing has ceased


Romans bid crowds to go




Torn is the veil


Just like so many hearts


The heavens seem darker


Some broken apart.


Laid in a deep tomb


It seems evil presides


Until it is shattered


For great light abides!




The angels rejoice


Singing jubilees


Death’s been defeated


Praise God on your knees






Christ is not dead


But risen Indeed


Mary’s rejoicing


“Clamps of death have been freed!”




The darkness now lifted,


Christ’s body is gone


Go people of Christ


Bring his great name in song




We remember the thieves


Who hung there as well


One went with Jesus-


The other to Hell






When you’re time has come


And you make the choice


Will you take Christ’ gift


Or ignore his voice?




The gift has been given


The price has been paid


Sinners repented


On Christ our sins laid.






On Calvary that day


Two chose where they stand.


One dropped down in darkness


One taking Christ’s hand.






Praise God he has risen


Sin cut like a knife


But what will you choose?


Hell or eternal life?
 
 
Hope you all have a great week! God Bless.

Nice poem Kelsey! I really like it. When I have a poem to write in literature, will you write it for me? No, JK, but your poetry is lots better than mine!
