early morning

early morning
light on an old painting
in a new place

And I remember an older poem.

rearranging
art on the walls
cards, and small gifts
from friends
I see them anew

afternoon sun

afternoon sun
fills the lamp
on a file cabinet

my study
where I have
read and prayed
through many years

I may read
from a book read
during a difficult time
and now years
have gone by

and I read again
with gratitude
and hope for today
and tomorrow

Creative Note: Poems From Psalms And Nature

This week, I wrote three new poems at Poems From Psalms And Nature. The theme is “Grateful Today.”

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

gifts to receive
and then let go
only for a time

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

First Christmas Letter

Karl and I sponsor a child with Compassion International. He is four years old and lives with his family in Mexico. We received a form to write a Christmas letter, to add to our gift online. This week we wrote a short note, to say Merry Christmas to the child and his family. Translation takes time, and then the delivery of letters.

We also correspond through email at Compassion International. We have worked with them for years, and have also sponsored children in Kenya and Peru. It is also possible to help without being a sponsor. Their commitment is to make sure every child in their program receives a Christmas gift, whether or not they have a sponsor.

I am also thinking a lot about veterans, including my father and others in our families.
