With freeze and thaw of wintry woes some fear the still-life’s gonna die. Why spin the news so fast that I can see the lies beneath fresh snows?
There is the Lamb that heaven shows, the One who can unseal the book. The losing side will try to hook the world with sorrows. Persevere. The sea of glass and fire comes here with victory and praising. Look!

Eugenia offers the theme “still-life” as her prompt this week. A commentary on Revelation by Michael Rood was on my mind especially verse 15:2 which he kept referring to.
Constricting envy cannot rest. It meditates throughout the night, turns dark the dawn of morning light. Our lungs can’t breathe. We’re python pressed.
We’d much prefer to be caressed without this dust. We don’t need more of what they’ve got. We’re looking for a way to make the python go, stop scheming, squeezing, wanting so. The Spirit breathes. We see the door.

The Lord resides within his mind, or so he thinks, but not his heart. His wheelchair today won’t start. The internet goes blank. He’s blind.

The winter’s beautiful although it’s much too cold with silent chills. I’d rather sleep than look for thrills while running out about the park where footsteps leave a foot deep mark, unless that’s what I hear He wills.
It’s holiness that makes us hush not happiness that runs away with pleasures leading us astray in nightmares while the waters rush.
With affirmations rich and plush we thank the Lord who made the sky, who made the earth and birds that fly and creatures on the land below and in the water. See! They show the glory of our God on high.
It’s perseverance that we need with faithful focus, pure of heart, repenting any wayward part. We let the Holy Spirit lead with prayer the writings that we read. Avoiding tricks deceivers play we stay upon the narrow way that follows closely His own will thus finding that we’ve served until the coming of the final day.

With little deeds I wrote my book. May viewers not be led astray. The cluttered moments blew away when upside down the world was shook and what was left is what I took. I reasoned rightly I should read the words I knew I ought to heed. “You’re much too late,” the devil said, “Tomorrow morning you’ll be dead.” This final chapter’s all I need.

His promises He’s come to keep. Deception’s seen through flashy art as idols fall and drift apart. Where demons dug delusions deep the truth’s now clear. The liars weep. Here comes the morning freshly made as night departs and star lights fade. It’s now we fully understand. We are the bride. We take His hand. Our ransom long ago was paid.
