Psalm 145 and poems

Every day will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Psalm 145: 2

These are some of my poems about the beauty of everyday life.

new year sunrise
light fills
the red poinsettia

branches viewed
in the corner windows
beloved old tree

May sunrise
a few more flowers
on the Christmas cactus

Sunday afternoon
I know the time
by the light

summer evening
light fills the evergreens
with old and new growth

reading poems
from years ago
perennials grow

mid-July
daylilies and hosta
tell the time

frost soon –
cutting flowers
generously

rereading Psalms
colors of leaves
a deeper gold

roots in His Word
I will flower again

I am slowly reviewing my 2019 blog archives.

I love the Lord,
because he hath heard my voice
and my supplications.

Psalm 116: 1 (KJV)

GRACE

gifts of small moments
when I read and write

in the middle of all
that happens every day

in our worlds
large and small

I am more than content
with what I have
and have achieved

goals revised
and rewritten for now

When my spirit
was overwhelmed within me,
then thou knewest my path.

Psalm 142: 3a (KJV)

routine care
and happy to wait my turn
I watch the world go by
and my heart
fills with love

Blessings,
Ellen Grace Olinger

Poem and Pictures

Old Wood In The House

strong winter winds
old wood in the house
ceilings, floors, walls
startling me in the early hours
speaking to me this day

resilience
strength

the way
Hope holds

Favorite old poem – still true
Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

CREATIVE NOTE: December 19, 2019 was our 10th anniversary with WordPress.com. If you wish, see the Achievement post at Poems from Oostburg, Wisconsin. We began this site, Poems From Psalms and Nature, in July 2010. These 10 years hold a lot of life, a lot of hope. I always feel I am just beginning . . . thank you.

I enjoy the research for images at wpclipart.

Bible Verse

But as it is written,
eye hath not seen,
nor ear heard,
neither have entered
into the heart of man,

the things which
God hath prepared
for them that love him.

1 Corinthians 2: 9 (KJV)

raindrops
on hosta plants

so beautiful
with and without
flowers

their leaves
in the sun

quiet grey morning
all the books
I hope to read

quiet grey morning
a page or two
and the restful view

rain and wind
flower petals
on the wood porch

local corn
and soybean fields
turning gold
wildflowers
in the yard
and along the roads
September
