John One: The Word

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.

New Poems

From recent posts at Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin, which we began in December 2009. The Delicate Vignettes are courtesy of Reusable Art.

raindrops
on hosta plants

so beautiful
with and without
flowers

their leaves
in the sun

quiet grey morning
all the books
I hope to read

quiet grey morning
a page or two
and the restful view

rain and wind
flower petals
on the wood porch

local corn
and soybean fields
turning gold
wildflowers
in the yard
and along the roads
September

Poems are by Ellen Grace Olinger.

for a few moments

for a few moments
as I pray and read
early sunlight
on birch trees
and a grey-blue sky

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
