Lake Michigan


Lake Michigan
so quiet today
a few small waves
steadily to shore
winter grows into Lent

My gratitude journal continues to include blessings in this colder winter this year: no loss of power, a warm house, warm water, a cup of hot coffee in the mornings. Then I also take leaps and reflect on my growing trust in God. I cherish the times He has called me to retreat as well, and grow deeper roots. Perhaps that is what Lent is too, in part.

I look forward…as winter grows into Lent.

Blessings, Ellen
