October sunrise

October sunrise
and some lights
in the house
not needed now
I stop to record
the moment and pray:

This is the day which the LORD hath made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118: 24

Saturday afternoon

Saturday afternoon
some time to listen
to quiet music and read

sunlight fills a lamp
that is not needed now
and the light shines
on the wall with art
by people I know

who also offer light
beauty hope

From Psalm 119:

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.

Psalm 119: 105

Bible Verses and Short Poems

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

Psalm 142: 3a (KJV)

lilacs bloom
purple and white
with grey sky
God’s promises

raindrops decorate
my study window
outside new leaves grow
on the tree I watched
turn gold

I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.  Psalm 18: 1 (KJV)

colorful tulips
on a cold day
unconditional love

faith continues
to grow
as I grow older
sun rising
earlier these days

The LORD hear thee
in the day
of trouble . . .

Grant thee
according to
thine own heart,

and fulfill all
thy counsel.

Psalm 20: 1a, 4 (KJV)

I formed some of the words from Psalm 20 into the shape of a short poem.
