Books Old and New

Where can you reduce clutter in your life?

Daily Prompt

We give books away, and buy new and used books.

POEM

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

Time

Do you spend more time thinking about the future or the past? Why?

Daily Prompt

Time is a gift from God. To learn, to plan wisely, to enjoy the gift of each moment and day . . .

And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us:
and establish thou the work of our hands upon us;
yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

Psalm 90: 17

Place – Daily Prompt

Do you have a favorite place you have visited? Where is it?

Daily Prompt

This morning I posted a poem about the Midwest at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin.

I have thought more about PLACE today, and how the Psalms and prayer are a place of peace for me.

Then I thought about authors and books. Two examples are:

Jan Karon and her Mitford novels – books to reread. Wonderful characters, stories, and a sense of place.

 Tracy Balzer and her book, A Journey of Sea and Stone: How Holy Places Guide and Renew Us. I plan to reread this thoughtful book.

Creative Note: The Mitford Museum

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

Jan Karon’s novels are excellent. I discovered The Mitford Museum site. The museum is in Hudson, NC and was founded by Jan Karon. The beautiful site includes more information and an online store.

Posts from The Psalms Series

The Psalms Series from 2020 featured short selections from the 150 Psalms. I began with the post, New Series From The Psalms (March 17, 2020). “My goal is to offer some moments of rest, beauty, and hope.”

This fall and winter, I plan to reprint a few posts. Perhaps the series is new for current readers, and those who have read before may enjoy a review. I often review past work on my sites.

Thank you to all who have visited Poems From Psalms And Nature for years, and those who are here today!

Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.

Psalm 5: 1
