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.

Psalm 145 and poems

Every day will I bless thee;
and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Psalm 145: 2

These are some of my poems about the beauty of everyday life.

new year sunrise
light fills
the red poinsettia

branches viewed
in the corner windows
beloved old tree

May sunrise
a few more flowers
on the Christmas cactus

Sunday afternoon
I know the time
by the light

summer evening
light fills the evergreens
with old and new growth

reading poems
from years ago
perennials grow

mid-July
daylilies and hosta
tell the time

frost soon –
cutting flowers
generously

rereading Psalms
colors of leaves
a deeper gold

roots in His Word
I will flower again
