Red Nose Day
A Triple Acrostic
by Steve Cope
Red Nose Day,
Everyone can play.
Donate $1 at Walgreens,
Nose so red and ready to snap
Open the shutter and see the scene,
Set in digital time and space, upside down.
Everyone wants their selfie to be the best.
Do you care?
A child you will raise,
Yes! Out of poverty they will be lifted.
Red Nose Day!
Everyone can make a difference.
Dollars given go to the cause.
No more hunger, no more sadness.
Open up your heart strings, and your wallets too!
Simply give a dollar, and get a holler!
Ever and ever children will be grateful to know their next meal is assured.
"Doing the most good, giving back to others."
A simple and fun way is presented here.
You can make a difference in lives from today and beyond!
All because you gave to Red Nose Day.

|Come on let's go.
On an adventure, don't you know.
Making our way out the door,
Every day the world is full of the poor.
Oh there are also rich too,
Now there is even status-quo.
Looking at your shiny new Labroughni,
Etching memories of the perfect score.
Taking a moment at the street corner,
Seeing a homeless man, a mourner.
Gosh, his family has left him.
Only his trusty dog remains at his side.
"Come On Let's Go, you crazy light. He's coming my way.
Oh what can I possibly say to this man as wildly dressed with a dog gone astray?
My luck has been okay of late, why does this man stop at my window?
Everything I have I worked hard every day for. Must I give it away"?
Oh wait he's pointing at my rear tire.
No it can't be! My new car with a flat!
"Let me change that tire for you mister.
Every day I find at least one person to serve out here.
The shop of the road let me go, but I still find those to serve.
See, I'm a master mechanic, and got tired of having to cheat our customers.
Give me your keys to the trunk and the tire will be changed soon.
Only if you so desire you may compensate me for my time. I do this to serve Him by serving you."
Come On Let's Go, where will your adventure lead you?
Sometimes the dark side emerges,
One where the anger and darkness surges.
Just this past Sunday afternoon we were at an Italian restaurant close to our church. The interior was nice, the exterior was good too. One thing that stuck out to me was the ceiling.
I'm always looking for a different angle to snap with a camera. Well there is this one picture I took that made me think about the darkness and light. The Dark Cope that emerges from time-to-time is the result of things that happened to me so many years ago; literally decades ago.
I was in the midst of this when I started writing, thanks to my mom who would inundate me with reading material during the times I was sickly and missing all the fun outside.
So back to the photo that I took. Really don't want to bring too much back to the surface. The ceiling is different. Pipes running along. Lot's of darkness and points of light created by the bulbs interspersed throughout.
The darkness reminded me again of the Dark Cope that was present when i first started writing. I felt the same way at that moment as I did decades ago when it was going on. '
Then I thought about the topic of our sermon that morning and realized that I had to choose between the darkness that was and the light that is now. Isn't amazing the strangest things that causes one to stop and think?
Putting a cap on the Dark Cope works for awhile. There needs to be a point where you choose between the darkness and the light once and for all. I chose the Light years ago, and this past Sunday I once again chose to do the same. The Dark Cope is at rest. The light wins out and all praise goes to the Lord.
The photo is not available right now but soon it will be uploaded and maybe this will make a little more sense.
You are important to God; your loved ones; the WdC, and Copenator out!
|It's Saturday again.
I'm keeping watch on the Raffle.
Grateful for those who have been by.
Waiting to serve the next request.
Lord it's been 6 years for me here.
the site to me has become very dear.
The people, the leaders, the varied lives lived here.
They all make up a site that runs as smooth as a new born deer.
The Dallas Cowboys are out of the playoffs.
It's sad but I'm grateful for the way they played.
Never giving up, never quitting, never walking away.
Traits I seek to echo in the remaining days of 2015.
|Coepnator's Crewe Raffle - Giving Back
01-15-2015 is my anniversary date here in the WdC.
In the years I have been here a few things have stood out.
1. Generosity is huge here. Giving to others is a staple on the WdC.
2. Encouragement and helpful reviews are the norm.
3. Receiving help from so many groups and even the leaders of this find site have instilled in me the onus to give back at every chance I have.
Here is the re-launch of Copenator's Crew.
Serving Him, by serving you.
Copenator out! BA, M Div
