Time Of Singing – Spring 2012

The new Time Of Singing, A Magazine of Christian Poetry, arrived yesterday This is a lovely print journal, now in its 39th Volume.

 Lora H. Zill, the editor, announced that she created a Facebook Page for the magazine.   www.facebook.com/TimeOfSinging

 The website address for the magazine is www.timeofsinging.com.

The following poem of mine, from this blog last May, was included in this new issue of TOS.  You are welcome to share with others, with proper credit.  I know from my WordPress stats that people seek material for bulletin boards, notecards, and other reasons.

As a former teacher, I remember the need to plan ahead, so today I’m looking ahead to May!

Mother’s Day Haiku

I am honored that this blog seems to bring comfort to others.  I’ve had stretches of time when I could write very little, as I gave myself to teaching and caregiving.  But poetry and faith were growing deeper roots.  All by the grace of God.  We face our own limitations again and again; yet, in His mercy, they lead to blessings too. The language arts are a common theme in my life, across several decades.  “In the beginning was the Word…” (John 1).
