And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us . . .
John 1: 14a (KJV)
This week I also read the Christmas story in Matthew and Luke. A great blessing, and to also refresh my memory about the history and all the characters in the story. So often I am reading my Bible, and then am inspired to write a post.

My mother’s passing was in 2004. Life was not always easy for my parents, and yet when I think of them, I think of unconditional love. Poetry is memoir for me. This is a favorite poem. I no longer drive this route, yet memories are as vivid as yesterday. I took the photo this year.
through the Light of Christmas I found my way home
from a hospital and nursing home through city and small town Main Streets
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.
The first two posts include many of Karl’s photos. I like to think we are adding to the record of our local history. As I reviewed, I saw that I wrote several new haiku this year, and created a post for the poems.
And I wrote a post, Christmas 2019, for Quiet Christmas Poetry, so readers know the book is still available, with information about where to order. We created the book from the site in 2014, and I write an update once in a great while. Perhaps the book will be an introduction to blogs for some readers.
