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.
Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.
For my brethren and companions’ sakes, I will now say, Peace be within thee.
Because of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek thy good.
Psalm 122: 7 – 9
These are two poems that I posted before. Over time, I am learning the poems for a new book, with Karl’s photos. It is interesting to see which poems work well in different posts, and that I remember easily. Sometimes I rediscover poems in my archives.
poems we read again and again washing an old plate the pattern still new
clouds and yet enough light to fill a jam jar with the last of the carnations
country cemetery trumpet vines growing taller than the gravestones
The following Bible verse today is in memory and honor of my mother. Her passing was in 2004, and love grows. She often quoted from literature, including the Bible. Her mother died a year before I was born – the same day as my birthday. Literature and faith sustained my mother. Creativity is part of health for me.
But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
Job 23: 10 (KJV)
Mother’s Day sorrow turns to stars and butterflies
