Sitting quietly and reading the Psalms…which inspire this blog, along with the nature outside my window and along country roads.
I reflected upon my recent posts and the holiday mail. As you can tell, I miss receiving cards from Charles Waugaman and am honored to share his work. He was one of the first editors to take my poetry seriously and to publish it (20 years ago). He edited TIME OF SINGING (TOS) for years, an international literary Christian journal, still in print and now edited by Lora Zill for many years. It is also illustrated by different artists. www.timeofsinging.com
Charles left so much art behind and I will not ever reach the end of reading and viewing his work. He meditated upon Scripture and prayed constantly. He mostly gave his art away–this was ministry for him. We became friends after he retired to Vermont. We shall meet again. Lora Zill continues to publish his poetry and drawings in TOS.
My thoughts turn now to the wide variety of holiday mail. This year is special for many reasons. Former Sunday School students wrote to us and shared pictures of their families. I heard from fellow students from different colleges and from former professors. Many greetings from family and friends. Thank you for yours as well.
