"Hear me when I call . . ."

Hear me when I call,
O God of my righteousness:

thou hast enlarged me
when I was in distress;

have mercy upon me, and
hear my prayer.

Psalm 4: 1 (KJV)
I arranged the lines for this post.

Favorite Photos – Spring 2019

As I review our archives, here are some favorite garden journal photos by Karl from Spring 2019. Hope to create a calendar some year.

Karl also took photos of pelicans and Lake Michigan.

I enjoy the vintage art. This Spring, I decided to postpone work on another book. I am writing my journal poems – as the days and seasons are given. My blogs are a creative home for me now. Thank you.
