grateful today
for art and colors
in so many ways

And from the Psalms:

Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.

Remember, O LORD,
thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses;
for they have been ever of old.

Psalm 25: 1, 6

Ellen Grace Olinger

with art we can keep

with art we can keep
what may seem lost
create with faith
the best we can

My father taught history, and my mother taught English composition and literature. Every day includes both. And there were peonies in the yard. Grateful today.

Journal Poem: Grateful Today

plants and flowers
through the seasons

how welcome the snowdrops
in Spring – daffodils, tulips
and primroses

Summer in our yard
offers daylilies, hosta, goldenrod
hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees

chrysanthemums, coneflowers,
and asters – how wonderful
to grow so well when so much
is past for the year

Just some thoughts today, that I hope to write about again. We bought chrysanthemums at Walmart in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. And saw coneflowers and asters too. Grateful today.
