SiP

Ephesians 6:10-18 (KJV)
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of
faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

This acrostic idea came when I shredding paper. Since SP didn’t give any meaning, inserting “i” seemed suitable letter candidate than “a”. Sip gives the meaning of drinking and dwelling in Christ’s strength and protection. According to the free online dictionary, sip means
1. To drink in small quantities
2. A small quantity of liquid sipped

Upon thinking of sip and Yori’s idea, shield of faith verses inspired my poetry. Graphical design will help to illustrate this message better.

Designing the sip graphically challenged me. I feel to make the small letter “i” signify human’s frailty needing God’s grace and mercy. Then integrity will follow.

The above poetry started with, “Dressed in skins | Dressed in leafs | Knitted skins | Knitted leafs” after I read about dress code issue. As I stumbled upon Ian’s remarks, my imagination starts to wander. The article can be found at Ericalagan.net/dress-code-st-anthony at ‘ianscyberspace on March 4, 2013 at 7:50 am’ mentioning, “The Bible says Adam and Eve were created naked so under the right circumstances where minds are pure that’s the ideal. But when in disobedience they realized they were in fact naked they put leaves on, and God substituted skins. Perhaps you should turn up at church in a leaf costume or skins and then he would be happy to have you go back to the traditional costumes which are both beautiful and appropriate. Its this kind of attitude your cleric espouses that turns people off religion today. It’s called majoring in minors!”

When I search the origin of cotton, the website wasn’t sure its date. The article is at here. The origin of silk is at this link

This whole process is very challenging for me to express my feelings and ideas through poetry.
