Bible Verse and Photo

” . . . whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”

Creative Notes and Photos

Jan Karon’s novels are a part of my life.  I reread a few of her recent books this year.

Her new book, to be published this fall, is Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series.

Carol Purington writes poetry, and I have been reading her haiku and tanka for years.   You can read some of her poems and learn more about her books at Woodslawn Farm.

Farm Song is Carol’s new work in progress.  This is a family project for Carol.  Please visit Woodslawn Farm for the latest information.

early morning
sunflowers wait
for the sun

early morning
fragrance of carnations
in the sunroom

the word
I seem to say
most often
these days —
grateful
