Vocabulary List – 2

Still

Know

God

Be still, and know that I am God . . .

From Psalm 46 – April 13, 2020 post.

I love the early mornings. Time to watch the light change and sunrise, pray, prepare for the day. Work in the kitchen, then blogs and books. God’s grace.

Sometimes all is still. No wind. The leaves on tall trees still. Light and shadows. Blue sky. I read and look again later, and there may be some wind. All kinds of weather. Rain and close some windows.

This week I saw stillness.

years
of early mornings
and always
more to see

pray
say thank you

being still
and knowing
He is God

Vocabulary List – 1 is my first post, about reflections from our series from the Psalms this year. No set schedule, simply a little more about the Psalms and daily life here. Poetry practice too.

gift of another day
to read and write

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

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
