Psalm 53 and haiku

God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,
to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

Psalm 53: 2

trees with full leaves
providing shade
comfort of faith

The Daily Post photo challenge this week is Admiration.  Karl took this photo of my still life arrangement with a card created by Charles A. Waugaman, editor for Time Of Singing when I began with the journal some time ago.

My photos of the peonies are for my parents.  They had pink, red, and white peonies in their yard.


This photo is from my garden journal last year.


This is a new photo of the peonies and daylilies growing again this year.


I admire the resilience of perennials.  New growth through old leaves is an image of endless inspiration.  Previous owners planted the primroses.

Prayers of gratitude,
Ellen Grace Olinger
